Asian-Lime Ribs

I love ribs.  It took me a long time to cook them myself, though.  I was very intimidated by them.  I have friends who have smokers just for their ribs.  I have no smoker.  I have friends who have secret recipes for marinating their ribs.  I have no secret recipes for marinating ribs.  What's a rib-loving girl to do??  Knowing I could never grill ribs as well as my friends, I came across a recipe for these Asian-Lime Ribs.  These were different.  They had a very different flavor than any I'd tasted before.  And the recipe is easy to follow and takes the guess work out of cooking ribs.  The sauce is sweet and spicy with an Asian flair.  They're delicious!  In fact, they're now my favorite ribs!

Asian-Lime Ribs

2 racks spareribs, trimmed

Rib Rub:
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons kosher salt
2 tablespoons black pepper
1 tablespoon ground cloves
1 tablespoon ground coriander

Asian-Lime Sauce:
3 tablespoons ginger, coarsely chopped
2 tablespoons garlic, coarsely chopped
3/4 cup rice vinegar
1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro, chopped
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons dark sesame oil
1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes

Dock meat between rib bones for extra flavor.

Combine ingredients for rub, and apply to ribs. Place in pan and cover tightly foil, and refrigerate for 1 hour. Double-check the foil to make sure it fits snugly around the pan. Slow roast the ribs in a 250 F. oven for about 2 hours, checking the ribs after about 1-1/2 hours. (You want the meat to pull away from the bones.)

Stir together ingredients for sauce. Brush on roasted racks of ribs before grilling.

Grill over medium-high heat a total of 15 minutes. Serve ribs with Asian-Lime Sauce.

Lori, those look delicious. I love the idea of the lime. We are having ribs tomorrow night. I might have to rethink how I am going to do them.

I like ribs too- which would probably surprise most of my friends. I don't eat them very often though. Your recipe looks out of this world- I love the mixture of seasonings and spices. They look wonderfully sticky which is a plus!
