One bite of these tender and flavorful ribs and you'll understand why this is the most requested recipe from friends and family. I developed it based on a recipe from my father-in-law, adding my own interpretation over the years. —Roxanne Chan, Albany, California

  • 1/2 cup char siu sauce
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup sherry or reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup oyster sauce
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons Chinese five-spice powder
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh gingerroot
  • 4 pounds pork spareribs
  • Thinly sliced green onions, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl, combine the first nine ingredients. Reserve half of the sauce for basting.
  2. Place ribs, bone side down, in a shallow roasting pan lined with foil. Spoon remaining sauce over ribs. Cover and bake 1 hour; drain.
  3. Bake, uncovered, until ribs are tender, basting occasionally with reserved sauce, 30-40 minutes. Cut ribs into serving-size pieces. If desired, sprinkle with green onions.
