5 pounds baby back ribs
1 large onion, sliced
2 tablespoon toasted sesame seed oil
2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup hoisin sauce
1/4 cup honey
3/4 cup brown sugar
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
*1 tablespoon sambal oelek
4 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
1 scallion, chopped
*1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
Cut the baby back ribs into 4 bone pieces and set them aside. Place the sliced onions into the bottom of a 12″ Dutch oven. In a large bowl, combine the soy sauce, sesame seed oil, apple cider vinegar, hoisin sauce, brown sugar, honey, garlic, spices, sambal oelek and half of the sesame seeds. Place the ribs into the bowl to coat them with the sauce then put the ribs on top of the sliced onions in your Dutch oven. Pour the sauce over the ribs and cover your Dutch oven.
Cook the ribs for 4-5 hours at 300 degrees. The ribs are fully cooked when the meat starts to fall off of the bone. Garnish the ribs with the scallion and the remaining sesame seeds then serve.
*I just bought my first Dutch Oven, and this is my first test recipe. Everything turned out perfect. It was cooked evenly, the meat falls out from the bone, super juicy and moist. I added sambal oelek,the sauce was sweet and spicy. It was finger linkin’ good. enJOY!!!
Tip: I took out the membrane, it is the whitish film over the rib section of the rack. By using a knife you can wiggle it in between at the edge of the rack, then grab it with a paper towel. It is really easy to do and only takes a few seconds once you can get a good grip on it. This cuts down your cooking time in half if you do this.
