Oriental ribs

4 servings


  • 1,5 kg pork ribs
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 4 cm piece of ginger
  • 0,5 dl dark muscovado sugar
  • 4 tbsp Hoisin sauce
  • 3 tbsp dry white wine
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • green onion and sesame seeds for garnish
Dry the meat with paper towels and lightly season with salt and pepper. Peel the ginger and garlic and finely chop them. Mix with two tablespoons of soy sauce and rub the meat on both sides with the mixture.
Place the ribs on a baking tray and tightly cover in foil. Bake at 140 degrees Celsius for 3 hours.
In a small saucepan mix Hoisin sauce, sugar, a tablespoon of soy sauce, wine and black pepper, and heat until the sugar dissolves.
Once the ribs come out of the oven, pour away the liquid that has collected on the baking tray and brush the meat with sauce. You can then grill the ribs for about 15 minutes, brushing with sauce every once in a while. Alternatively you can brown the ribs in the oven on a foil-covered baking tray at 200 degrees for 20 minutes. Do not forget to brush the meat with the sauce as it is baking. Be careful at this step, the sweet marinade burns easily.
Once the ribs are done, sprinkle with sesame seeds and chopped green onions and serve with fresh salad.
Enjoy this summery dish!
