Cantonese Barbecued Spareribs
Have you ever ordered barbecued spareribs as an appetizer in a Chinese restaurant and wished that you could have them as a complete meal? Well you can if you make them in your oven at home. Actually, they are not very difficult to make if you take a few simple precautions to make your cleanup easier.
First, you will need to marinate the ribs for at least four hours. Then you must cook them directly on a rack in your oven for about 50 minutes at 350 F. You must place a pan with a half inch of cold water on the lowest rack in your oven to catch the drippings. The water should be at least 9-10 inches away from the ribs so that they don’t steam.
Finally, you must apply a glaze to one side of the ribs and cook them for five minutes and then turn them over and repeat the process on the other side. All of the ingredients should be available at a well-stocked supermarket, but it would be wise to locate a Chinese or Asian store. The prices will be better there and so will the selection. This recipe is intended for one 3-4 pound rack of uncut spareribs.
15 Minutes (Plus marinate up to 24 hours)
1 Cup of Hoisin Sauce
½ Cup of Black Soy Sauce
3 Cloves of Garlic minced
¼ Cup of Light Corn Syrup or Honey
¼ Cup of Dry White Wine
¼ Cup Honey
1 Tablespoon Thin Soy Sauce (or ½ Tablespoon Black Soy Sauce and ½ 1/2 Tablespoon Water)
- Marinate the ribs at least 4-6 hours and preferably overnight, turning them over occasionally to make certain that they are coated on all sides.
- Preheat the oven to 350 F and place a pan with at least ½ inch of cold water on the lowest rack to catch the drippings.
- Place the ribs directly on the highest rack with the fat side up. If you spray the rack with Pam before you place the rack in the oven, it will help with the cleanup later.
- Cook the ribs for 50 minutes at 350 F. Then brush the topside with glaze using a pastry brush and continue cooking for 5 more minutes.
- Flip the ribs over, apply glaze to the bottom side of the ribs and cook them for an additional 5 minutes.
- Split up the individual ribs using a sharp knife or a cleaver.
There are many side dishes that you can serve with these ribs. Potato or pasta salads immediately come to mind. If you wish to maintain a Chinese theme, there are a number of meatless stir-fries available. It is entirely up to you, but I have provided links to a number of my recipes if you wish to try them.
