  • 4 racks pork back or side ribs

For the Dry Rub

  • 3 tbsp ground ginger
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tbsp dry mustard powder
  • 2 tbsp Chinese five spice powder
  • 2 tbsp paprika

For the sauce

  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp chili flakes optional
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce


  1. Remove the silver skin from the backs of the ribs. I push the handle of a spoon under the silver skin to loosen it at one end then pull it off in long strips
  2. Mix together all the ingredients listed in the dry rub until they are well combined.
  3. Rub the dry rub all over the ribs and cover with plastic wrap. Let sit in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight.
  4. Cover a large cookie sheet with aluminum foil and place a baking rack on the sheet. Slowly open roast the ribs at 300 degrees F for about 2 1/2 - 3 hours or until fully cooked and tender. (i.e.The rib bones come easily away from the meat.)

To make the Orange Ginger Hoisin Sauce

  1. In a small saucepan saute the garlic lightly in the olive oil. When the garlic is softened but not browned add all of the other ingredients EXCEPT the Hoisin Sauce.
  2. Simmer until the volume of the liquid is reduced by half. Remove from heat and stir in the hoisin sauce.
  3. Use this glaze to brush on the ribs several times in the last half hour of cooking and as a dipping sauce or poured over the ribs when serving.

Recipe Notes

If serving plain steamed rice with the ribs, I often double the sauce recipe to spoon some of the sauce over the rice. Amy unused sauce is easily frozen too.
