Asian Style Ribs

These are one finger licking ribs. The meat is so tender and juicy that it falls off the bones easily. The sauce is sweet, tangy and with a light hint of 5 spice powder. The secret of cooking this tender ribs is wrap it up in foil and let it cook long and slow in the oven. Normally we will grill it on the BBQ after the baking part but since we already clean up BBQ set so I did it all in the oven. The results are just as good except minus for the smoky flavor.


3 pound of ribs
1 tsp grated ginger
2 cloves garlic – finely chopped
1/4 cup light soy sauce
3 tbsp Lee Kum Kee Spare Ribs sauce
1 large orange juice and zest
½ tsp 5 spice powder
1 tsp pepper
3 tbsp dark brown sugar

1. Clean, trim off excess fat from both side and remove the removed the membrane from the back side of the ribs (Insert a knife under the membrane, then your fingers ,work a section loose, grip it with a paper towel, and peel it off)
2. Combined all the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Pat the ribs dry and season both sides generously with marinates. Set it aside to marinate for at least 4 hours.
3. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degree F. Wrap the ribs up with a large piece of aluminum foil. Place the ribs in a large sheet pan and let it bake for 1.5 hours. The ribs should be done and fall off the bone by now and if not let it bake for another half an hour.
4. Open up the foil and pour out all the sauce/juice from the baked ribs into a small saucepan. Skim off the fats if there is any and bring the sauce up to boil it let it thickens. Brush the sauce all over the ribs.
5. Switch the oven to broil, and broil the ribs until caramelize and golden brown. Let it cool down for 15 min before cutting into it.

Note: Keep a close watch on the ribs when you broil them as they get burn pretty quick.

Elin Chia said...

Gertrude...I love all the marinade ingredients here. Great combo for the ribs. I guess the orange juice will tenderize the meat ...that is why the meat becomes tender and fall off the bones easily....mmmm can imagine how good this is :)

Wendy, it taste good too :)

Leemei, me too.

Lyndsey, let me know how yours turn out. Hope your family likes it.

Cheffiry, yeap.

LCOM, wrap in foil and bake helps a lot.

ICook4Fun said...

Chef Bee, you are welcome.

Jennifurla, ha ha sorry about that.

Elin, if you can get good ribs back home maybe you can try it out too. The orange gives it a nice citrus flavor to it.

Dawn, yes the whole house smell BBQ when it was in the oven :)

Ijayuji, you can always use beef ribs. Kalau tak dapa you can pakai chicken drumsticks too.

Reese, hope you like it.

ICook4Fun said...

Jeannie, you are welcome.

Minibaker, I used baby back ribs.

Lesley, yes this taste like the ribs you find from the chicken rice stall.

3 hungry tummies, yes it is :)

Shereen, if you have the Lee kum Kee char siew sauce you can use it too. They are similar. If not than you need to add tomato ketchup, bean bean paste, garlic powder, extra sugar to the marinate.

Hana, you are welcome.

ICook4Fun said...

Grace, yes. You can add any kind of marinate you like to it and stick it in the oven.

Mary, thank you.

Anncoo, thank you.

Quay Po, looking forward to your posting.
