Mahogany Glazed Spareribs

  • FAST

Brushing tender spareribs with a glaze of ginger, soy sauce and chili sauce turns them deep mahogany as they're grilled. The meat cooks surprisingly quickly because it's cut into individual ribs.

  1. 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  2. 1/4 cup water
  3. 2 large garlic cloves, crushed
  4. 5 pounds spareribs, cut into individual ribs
  5. 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
  6. 1 1/2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  7. 1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
  8. 1 teaspoon Chinese chili-garlic sauce
  1. Light a grill. In a small bowl, combine the vinegar and water with the garlic. Grill the spareribs over a medium-low fire until golden brown, brushing frequently with the garlic mixture and turning occasionally, about 25 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the hoisin sauce with the minced ginger, soy sauce and chili-garlic sauce. Brush the hoisin glaze on the spareribs and grill, turning occasionally, until they're deep mahogany, 9 to 10 minutes longer. Transfer the spareribs to a platter and serve with lots of napkins.
