Hawaiian Style Pork Ribs

18 Apr

This past weekend we had a little get together at our place with a few of our good friends. Having people over for dinner, lunch or brunch is one of our favorite things to do. I love planning the menu and this time around I had a unique rib recipe that I was dying to make! I got the recipe from the fantastic Sommelier Leslee at Amusée. The ribs were wonderful and I will definitely be making them again!! To round out the meal I served Spanish roasted potatoes with garlic aioli, asparagus with a lemon vinaigrette and lemon tart for dessert.

This recipe is perfect for a small group of people so invite your friends over and enjoy!

Hawaiian Style Pork Ribs

Serves 4-6

1 ¼ cup light brown sugar

1 cup soy sauce

1 tablespoon sesame oil

½ teaspoon chili flakes

4 cloves garlic, minced (fresh)

3 tablespoons fresh ginger, minced or grated

3 pounds baby back ribs

3 scallions, green parts, thinly sliced

Directions

Whisk together sugar, soy sauce, oil, chili flakes, garlic and ginger with a ¼ cup of water in a large bowl. Add ribs and coat well. Cover bowl with plastic and marinate at room temperature for 1 hour or refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Place ribs curved side up on a lined sheet pan with a baking rack. Roast for 30 minutes on each side or until tender.

While the ribs are roasting, add marinade to a saucepan, bring to a boil and reduce. Use reduced marinade to baste ribs. You can also make extra marinade if needed.

Serve with extra sauce and garnish with scallions and sesame seeds.

Enjoy!
