Roasted Pork Ribs - IHCC Potluck Week

Joining I Heart Cooking Clubs provides me a good chance to try different ways of cooking. The most exciting part is to prepare an everyday dish in a totally new way, such as steamed coconut curry soup, baked fish fillet,  roasted pork ribs etc.

We all like that fall off the bone, melt in your mouth rack of ribs. That's why I often boil pork ribs soup, easy and nutritious. Typical ingredients go well with pork ribs are fresh corns, lotus root, apple, pear.  Never roasted pork ribs at home,  simply because I am afraid they would be too dry.

Asian ribs, one of Donna Hay's recipe suggests using hoisin sauce (海鲜酱), five-spice powder (五香粉), soy sauce (酱油) , sesame oil (芝麻油), Shaoxing (绍兴酒) to marinate the ribs. These seasonings are readily available in my kitchen.  It's so convenient to prepare this dish. To achieve tender roasted ribs, I first pull the membrane off  the ribs before marinate them. The membrane can get hard and chewy if you leave it on.  After that,  season the ribs and leave the ribs in the fridge overnight.   During baking, cover the pan with aluminium foil to form a tent.  Make sure there are no holes.  The roasted ribs turned out to be tender and juicy.  We really enjoyed these delicious pork ribs at dinner today. 

(Recipe adapted from Donna Hay's website)

  • 500g pork rib        
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Shaoxing (Chinese rice wine)       
  • 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder


  1. I love nibbling on ribs! These look very different from my usual take, but who can resist those Asian flavours ?!

  2. I bet all of the flavors in these were delicious. I really love Chinese five-spice powder. ;-)

  3. Oh, My!! Those look fantastic. And delicious. I love ribs but have never used these flavors with them. Gonna change that.

  4. They look delicious and the Asian flavours sound fabulous. These would be a big hit in my home!

  5. Your pork ribs are making me hungry. They look wonderful. I am scared of making these too because of fear that they will turn dry. Seeing you makes me want to try.

  6. These ribs looks wonderful. Love the sound of those flavourings, and I actually have all of those ingredients in my pantry.

  7. Delicious looking ribs! These look finger-licking good!

  8. Your pork ribs look just like what we order when we get take-out. Thanks so much, look forward to trying at home.
