Summertime and the living is easy… well maybe not so easy this summer of 2020. But we are all doing our best to enjoy what the summer has to offer; warm weather, casual eating, time to read, or just smell the roses. I do miss entertaining friends but wine on the deck in the afternoon is still in the picture. 🙂
Just because we are not entertaining, there is no excuse for not enjoying a nice rib dinner. These ribs can be cooked in the oven or on a barbeque and are a great accompaniment to grilled corn on the cob, french fries, and cornbread. The orange sauce lends a delightful flavor to the meat and can be drizzled over rice or any number of side dishes you would serve with ribs.

Category: Dinner, Meat, Recipes
3 pounds pork ribs
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1/4 cup chutney (I used my homemade green tomato chutney)
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons Tabasco sauce (or sriracha)
1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
PREP: position oven rack in the upper third and preheat to 400 degrees. Line a baking dish or baking sheet with foil.
Zest the oranges and squeeze out juice. Whisk the zest and juice with hoisin sauce, chutney, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, Tabasco, sesame oil, and Chinese five-spice.
Place ribs on baking sheet or dish and pour the sauce over. Cover with foil and bake for about 1 hour.
Uncover and continue cooking for about 10-30 minutes depending on how meaty the ribs are.
Pour sauce over ribs when serving.
You can thicken orange sauce with flour if you prefer before drizzling on top of cooked ribs.
