Hoisin-Broiled Ribs with Sesame Seeds Recipe

Serves 4.


  • 1/2 cup (generous) hoisin sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 3 medium garlic cloves, pressed
  • 2 1/2 pounds country-style pork loin ribs, cut into individual ribs
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
    *hoisin sauce – available at oriental markets and in the oriental section of some supermarkets.


    Combine first 5 ingredients in medium bowl. Transfer to large shallow dish. Add ribs to marinade; turn to coat all sides. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

    Preheat broiler. Line baking sheet with foil. Arrange ribs bone side down on foil. Transfer marinade to heavy small saucepan and boil until very thick, about 7 minutes. Brush ribs with marinade. Broil 4 minutes. Turn and baste ribs generously; broil another 4 minutes. Turn again and baste. Sprinkle ribs with sesame seeds and broil until seeds are golden brown, about 1 minute.

    Reduce oven temperature to 350°F. Bake ribs until cooked through, about 20 minutes. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate. Reheat in 350°F. oven for 20 minutes.) Transfer to platter and serve.
