Last August, I wasn't in the mood for all of the ingredients in my usual Char Siu/Xa Xiu (Chinese/Vietnamese Barbecued Pork), but I still wanted Chinese flavors. So I kept it very, very simple -- salt, soy sauce, honey, and Chinese five-spice powder. Simply perfect for what I wanted that evening.
Chinese Five-Spice and Honey Ribs
For 1 pound of pork ribs, you'll need:
1 lb of pork ribs :)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tblsp soy sauce
1 tblsp honey
1 tsp Chinese five-spice powder
Wash the ribs. Mix the salt, soy sauce, honey, and spices together until a paste is formed. Then rub the mixture all over the ribs, about two-thirds on the meaty side.
Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes, meaty side down.
Then flip the ribs and bake for another 20 minutes. Broil for about 5 minutes at the end if you'd like the meat to have a slight char.
Remove the ribs from the oven and let rest for about 15 minutes to let the juices redistribute.
Slice the ribs and serve with jasmine rice if you wish.
