Serves: 8


  • 2 teaspoons Private Selection™ Chinese Five Spice Blend
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 6 pounds ribs
  • 1⁄4 cup water
  • 1 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1⁄4 cup rice vinegar (unseasoned)
  • 1⁄4 cup Simple Truth Organic™ Sweet Thai Style Chili Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon gochujang
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, minced
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 3 chilies, seeded (optional) and minced
  • Scallions, thinly sliced, for garnish
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish


  • Pre-heat the oven to 375°F.
  • In a bowl, combine the five spice powder, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and black pepper. Lightly sprinkle the rub over both sides of the ribs; refrigerate. Cover for at least 4 (or up to 24 hours).
  • In a medium sauce pan over medium heat, combine water, hoisin sauce, vinegar, sweet chili sauce, gochujang, ginger, sesame oil and chilies. Bring mixture to light boil. Reduce heat to low; let liquid simmer, whisking every minute, until it thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat; set aside.
  • In a large roasting pan, arrange ribs meat side down. Cover with foil; roast 30 minutes. Remove foil; baste bottom of ribs with pan drippings. Turn ribs meat side up; baste with sauce.
  • Continue cooking, uncovered, 35-45 minutes, basting every 10 minutes, until ribs are tender and meat is pulling away from bones along edges. Remove from oven; give ribs one final glaze.
  • Let cool 10 minutes. Slice individual ribs off; arrange on platter. Garnish with scallions and sesame seeds.
