Sticky Hoisin Oven Baked Ribs

Teri & Jenny
These Sticky Hoisin Oven Baked Ribs are fall off the bone tender. The glaze gives these baby back ribs a delicious sticky coating. The asian flavors of this recipe are incredible, and we love serving these ribs with some white rice.

Notes

Make Ahead

Our ribs can be baked up to 3 days ahead of time and the glaze can be made up to 1 week ahead of time.
  • To make glaze ahead of time, make as directed and cool completely. Transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 1 week. When ready to use, simmer in a small pot until heated through, then slightly cool
  • To make ribs ahead of time fully marinate and bake ribs as directed. Drain liquid from foil, but keep ribs tightly covered in foil. Refrigerate for up to 3 days. When ready to use, unwrap ribs and place onto a baking sheet, meat side down. Brush with glaze and broil for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip ribs, brush with more glaze and continue to broil for an additional 2 to 3 minutes or until ribs have heated through and caramelized from the glaze.

Freezing

Our ribs can be frozen for up to 3 months.
  • To freeze oven baked ribs, make as directed, before applying glaze, and cool completely.
  • Cut cooled rack of ribs into 3 pieces and tightly wrap each piece in heavy duty foil. Place foil packets into a resealable freezer bag, removing as much air as possible before sealing and place in freezer.
  • To reheat oven baked ribs thaw in refrigerator. Once ribs are full thawed remove foil, then brush ribs with glaze on both sides and place onto a baking sheet, meat side up. Place in a 325˚F oven and heat through, about 20 minutes. Brush ribs with more glaze and transfer to a broiler. Broil for 2 to 3 minutes or until glaze caramelizes. Top with sliced green onions and sesame seeds.
