Chinese Country-Style Pork Ribs Recipe

Chinese Country-Style Pork Ribs Recipe

“These ribs are tangy and tender. The Chinese-style glaze gives them a different and unique taste.” Jamie’s original recipe called for the ribs to be baked, but we found we could prepare tender ribs even faster by starting them in the microwave. Jamie Wetter - Boscobel, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Grill: 10 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 pounds bone-in country-style pork ribs
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon liquid smoke, optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 cup chili sauce
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Directions

  • 1. Cut ribs into serving-size pieces; place in a 3-qt. microwave-safe dish with water, liquid smoke if desired and onion powder. Cover and microwave on high for 15-20 minutes or until meat is tender.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5-8 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally.
  • 3. Drain ribs. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, rub on grill rack to coat lightly. Grill ribs, covered, over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until browned, turning occasionally and basting with sauce. Yield: 8 servings.
