READY IN: 3hrs 15mins




  • In a medium saucepan, combine the soy sauce, water, 1/2 cup brown sugar, molasses, and salt.
  • Bring the marinade to a boil and set aside to cool.
  • Put the ribs in a large, turkey-size oven baking bag or sealable plastic bag. Support the bag in a 12 x 14 inch baking pan.
  • Pour the marinade over the ribs and seal the bag.
  • Marinate the ribs in the refrigerator overnight, turning the bag occasionally to thoroughly coat the meat.
  • The next day, preheat the oven to 375ºF.
  • Drain and discard the marinade from the bag.
  • Cut 4 slits in the top of the baking bag if you are using one.
  • Otherwise, drain the marinade, transfer the ribs to the baking pan, and cover the pan with foil.
  • Bake the ribs for 2 hours.
  • While the ribs are baking, prepare the barbecue sauce.
  • In a large saucepan, blend the water, ketchup, chili sauce, brown sugar, and dry mustard.
  • Bring this mixture to a boil, stir well to dissolve the sugar, and set aside to cool.
  • When the ribs are cooked and tender, open the bag and discard the drippings.
  • Lower the oven temperature to 350ºF.
  • Brush the ribs on both sides with the barbecue sauce and put them on the grill for 15-30 minutes to give them a bit of a char.
