Hot and Sticky Asian Ribs


1 jar hoisin sauce
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup chili garlic sauce
1/4 cup rice vinegar
2 T soy sauce
2 T toasted sesame oil
2 T garlic, minced
2 T fresh ginger, minced

2 T vegetable oil, divided
8 bone-in country style pork ribs (about 3 1/2 lbs)

Combine all sauce ingredients in a bowl.

Heat 1 T oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat; season ribs with salt and pepper. Saute 4 ribs until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Remove from pan and saute remaining ribs in remaining oil. Return ribs to the pan, add half of the sauce and bring to a simmer. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 15 minute. Flip ribs and simmer uncovered for another 15 minutes, turning occasionally to coat with sauce. Reduce heat to low. Simmer an additional 15 minutes, turning often. Serve with remaining sauce.

Good with cucumber salad.
