Oven-Roasted Baby Back Ribs with Home Made Barbecue Sauce
1 rack of baby back ribs
2 stalks of lemon grass (crushed then peel the outer skins off and crush the tender part slightly and leave in whole)
4 – 6 gloves of garlic (slightly crushed to release flavor)
4 springs of parsley
Salt and Pepper to taste
1/4 cup of hoisin sauce (could be found in local Asian market)
1/4 cup of ketchup
1/4 cup of ketchup
1/4 cup of rice wine vinegar
2 tbs of soy sauce
1/4 cup of guava jam or honey
2 stalks of scallions (white parts only cut in 2 inches pieces for easy removal)
2 thickly sliced pieces of ginger
1 tbsp of Sriracha sauce (or your favorite hot sauce)
1 tsp of five spice powder
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Season the ribs generously on both sides with salt and pepper then place the rack of ribs on a piece of aluminum foil. Place the lemongrass and garlic under the ribs. Then place the parsley on top of the rib. Wrap the ribs tightly with aluminum foil and place in a roasting pan. Roast the ribs for 30 minutes at the high temperature then lower the temperature to 250 degrees. Roast for 1 to 1 1/2 hours until the meat is tender.
Meanwhile put all the ingredients for the sauce together and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for about 10-15 minutes until it thickens. After the ribs are done, take the ribs out of the oven, unwrap the ribs and discard foil. Generously brush the sauce on the bottom side of the ribs. Turn the broiler on high, place the ribs under the broiler and broil for 5 minutes. Turn the ribs over and brush sauce on the top side of and broil for another 5 minute. Add more sauce if you wish, then cut the ribs individually and serve.
