Mom Wong's Chinese Ribs


2 tablespoons Hoisin Sauce
3/4-cup of catsup
3-cloves of crushed garlic
1 tablespoon low chow (dark) soy sauce
3 tablespoons sang chow (light) soy sauce
2 tablspoons sugar
1/4 cup honey
1/4 - 1/2 cup
1 rack of pork spare ribs, about 3 pounds


Mix all ingredients together in a large dish or zip-lock bag. Pat the ribs dry and add to marinade. Let sit for atleast 6-hours. Lightly oil the grill rack on a barbecue grill, and preheat to medium-low (about 250 to 275 degrees F). Arrange the ribs on the rack and cover (with foil or upside down hotel pan). Cook, turning every 20 minutes, until tender, about 2 hours, replenishing charcoal as needed. During the last 20 minutes of cooking time, baste the ribs with the sauce, turning twice. Remove the ribs from the grill and serve with napkins. If you want to make this dish in the oven: After marinating, place them in a preheated 350 degree F oven for 10 minutes. Remove. Remove from the oven, wrap in multiple layers of foil, and return to the oven to bake for 1 1/2 hours.
Notes: Note that these can be cooked anyway you like your ribs. The method above is the way I like them best. . .I have also boiled the ribs in water (with 2 teaspoons of 5-spice powder and 2 teaspoons of salt) for 15 minutes prior to marinating. This extra process does bring the best results, but is not necesary.
