Chinese Spareribs

Ever go to a Chinese buffet and see things like these Chinese Spareribs there?  Well, these tasted just like those ribs!  And I cooked them in the oven, so it was really easy. Enjoy!

1 rack spareribs or baby back ribs
1/2 C Hoisin sauce
1/4 C red wine
2 T soy sauce
1/4 C honey
1 teaspoon fennel, ground
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon ginger

Put the ribs in a large zipper bag (cut them in half if necessary).  Whisk together the remaining ingredients and pour them into the bag.  Close the bag and turn and squeeze the bag around to coat the ribs.  Place them in the fridge for at least 4 hours and up to overnight, turning over occasionally.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Line a large sheet pan with foil.  Place a rack on the foil.  Place the ribs on the rack (don't throw out the marinade) and cover the entire thing with foil.  Cook covered for 1 hour.  Keep the marinade in  the fridge for now.

After 1 hour, turn the oven up to 450 degrees.  Brush some of the marinade on both sides of the ribs and cook for 10 minutes.  Brush them again with the marinade and cook again for about 10 minutes.  After the 10 minutes is up, slice the ribs to make sure they are done.  If they aren't done, brush any remaining marinade on the cut sides of the ribs and cook until they are done.  This last step took my ribs an additional 10 minutes.

  1. Nice looking recipe. I do mine at a lower temperature 300 for 3-4 hours depending of quantity of ribs....I make lots.
