          Chinese BBQ Baby Back Ribs

          Chinese BBQ Ribs are finger licking good and will enhance any table with its presence. The rub embeds its flavors in the meat through well timed marination and the basting BBQ sauce drips like glazed honey. These Ribs feature a gorgeous presentation of red and have the essence of the orient captured in the flavor combination of the rub and the delicious sauce. The cook times on these instructions are spot on for ribs that pull from the bone with ease and are not dried out from over cooking. You will love how simple this recipe is to make and your family will leave nothing but the bones on their plates.

          Chinese BBQ baby back ribs are easily prepared at home. I was inspired to refine this recipe because we live about 3 hours from the closest good Chinese BBQ restaurant. I do not have to pay restaurant prices for an easy to make at home meal for half the cost. Typically when you go to the restaurant, ribs are served with rice and vegetables but when you make these at home, you can enjoy them with what ever you prefer and make for a unique eatfoodlicious experience. My favorite thing about this recipe are the leftovers, that’s like a two for one in the kitchen. This BBQ Sauce is somewhat reminiscent of Char Siu sauce except this recipe incorporates five spice which enhance the flavor of the pork and makes the taste buds pop with pleasure at each bite.

            Serve with white, brown or cauliflower rice.

            Place the sliced meat in a bowl. Add fish sauce, diced shallot, miced garlic, white pepper and mix well. Set aside.

            Heat a non-stick pan or enameled cast iron skillet to medium.

            Add brown sugar and cook until it begins to melt (75%). Stir with a wooden spoon (sugar will become hard & sticky). Slowly add about ½ cup of the coconut water to the pan and stir.

            Add pork belly to the pan; continue to turn and mix while cooking for 1-2 minutes. Add the rest of the coconut water and mix.

            Turn up the heat to medium-high and let simmer for a couple of minutes. Then turn the heat down to medium and cook for 30-45 minutes uncovered or until the glaze has thickened (make sure to stir frequently).
