Lately I have been so hungry for BBQ ribs....I kept putting it off, waiting for a sunnier day.....I found this recipe for wonderful ribs, and all of it is cooked in the oven............
Asian Orange-Ginger Glaze
1 tsp grated ginger (use a microplane rasp grater)
1 T minced garlic
1/4 cup minced red onion
3/4 cup hoisin sauce
1 large orange, peel zested with rasp grater & juiced (you should have 1/4 c of juice and about 2 T zest)
1 T white rice wine vinegar
1 t red chili flakes
1/4 tsp of chinese 5 spice
2 T yuzu sauce (you can substitute with lemon juice)
1. Preheat oven to 375. Pat the ribs dry and season both sides liberally with garlic salt and pepper. Place the ribs in a large roasting pan, overlapping is ok. Cover tightly with aluminum foil or lid and place in oven. Roast 3 hours, up to 6 hours. If you are feeding less than 4 people, then check the ribs after 3 hours, they should be done.
2. To make the glaze: Heat a small saucepan over medium heat. Add 2 T canola oil, and when hot, add the red onion. Cook until the onion is soft, about 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic and the ginger. Cook another minute. Add the remaining ingredients, except for the yuzu sauce. Lower the heat to low and cook down the sauce until it thickens and reduces about 6-8 minutes. The sauce should be sticky and thick. Remove from heat and add the yuzu sauce (or lemon juice). You can also add more freshly grated ginger if you like for the extra kick.
3. The ribs are done when they fall off the bone. Trust me, you’ll know. Try picking up a rib and see how the meat just falls off. Place the ribs in a single layer – you may have to use a baking sheet. Brush the Asian Orange-Ginger Glaze on the tops of the ribs. Broil on high until the sauce bubbles and caramelizes, about 3-5 minutes. Keep a watch on the ribs – don’t burn them! Instead of the Glaze, you could just use your favorite BBQ sauce – the results will be outstanding.
place all the ribs (cut into 3 rib pieces) in a baking dish and coat with salt and pepper and garlic powder....bake for approx. 2 hours, then check the meat should fall off the bone.

place finished ribs on broiler pan and FYI: don't forget the foil on the pan, brush the under side first with the sauce......broil for 3 minutes and take out of oven, flip over and brush opposite side with sauce and broil again for 3 minutes.....
this is so good....a little spicy and sweet and a thick sticky sauce.....the meat falls off the bone...so tender!
Cheers to Happy !!
