Asian Bar-B-Q Pork Ribs

I know I'm Texan, but for some reason ribs have always fell in that "scary" category to cook. I don't know why, but I've never made ribs before. Now though, I think they may make into a more frequent rotation. For one thing they are super easy to make and for another they are SO good. Plus it was very adorable to see Izzie chowing down on it. She even asked what it was about two or three times. She does that so she can remember to ask for it again. Even Maddie liked them, but she didn't clean the bone like Izzie did. The coleslaw side I made wasn't as well received, but it wasn't too bad. It had an Asian dressing with oranges and peanuts in it. I'm not posting the recipe to it since it got a thumbs down from the family (and it wasn't my favorite either.)

Asian Bar-B-Q Pork Ribs

I really didn't measure the sauce so here are the approximates:
1/2 cup hoisin sauce (I need to find a homemade version of this, if anyone knows of one please let me know!)
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
1 tsp freshly grated ginger
2 grated garlic cloves
2 tsp sesame oil
3 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil

Mix all the ingredients together in a small pan and let boil, stirring frequently. Let it reduce by half so it is thick and glossy. Set aside.

Take your rack of ribs and rub with salt, pepper and olive oil. Wrap tightly in foil. Place on a wrack in a roasting pan. I used a stone cookware which I think helped make it nice and juicy. Add about 3/4 cup of water to the bottom of your pan. Seal tightly with foil and bake at 275 for 2 hours.

Remove from pan, place on a cookie sheet and baste with sauce. Broil on High about 3 inches from heat, for 3-6 minutes or until nice and caramelized. Turn over and baste the second side and broil for another 4-6 minutes. Enjoy!
