1/4 c Chinese rice wine or dry sherry

2 T ground bean sauce (optional)

1 t rice wine vinegar

Directions

Cooking ribs is divided into two phases. The first phase is seasoning the meat. This is done with a marinade or a dry rub. In Chinese ribs, I use a marinade that is best used overnight. If you are planning to marinade less than 8 hours, heat the marinade in the microwave oven for 30-45 seconds before applying to the meat.

Mix the above ingredients. Place ribs in a non-reactive container (I use a Tupperware marinater). Pour on marinade.

This recipe makes enough for 2 racks of ribs. If you are only cooking 1 rack, you can half the recipe OR prepare the full recipe, use half, and save the rest for pork chops. (The marinade will keep for a few weeks in tightly sealed jar in the refrigerator

The second part of the process is the cooking. The following is just one method of cooking ribs. It is adapted from Chris Schlesinger and John Willoughby and enjoys the benefit of being the easiest.

Marinade ribs overnight. (Use a whole rack of real spare ribs. Cut them only to fit onto the roaster rack) Preheat oven to 180 degrees Place ribs on a roaster pan with a rack. Pour water into the bottom of the pan, making sure not to have the ribs in the water. Place in oven for 5-6 hours, depending on the thickness of the ribs.

The ribs are now cooked. To finish the ribs, you can just turn the oven up to 450 degrees and keep a close watch. If you have the time, they can be finished on an outdoor grill.
