Chinese BBQ Ribs

3-4 lbs. Spare ribs or Country style ribs

Marinating sauce:
1/2 cup Chinese Hoisin Sauce *see note
1/2 tsp. garlic salt or two cloves fresh garlic
1/4 tsp. meat tenderizer
1 tsp. sesame oil
1/4 cup sugar (white or brown will work)

Rinse ribs with cold water and pat dry. Mix ingredients above except for honey and marinate ribs in sauce above overnight or for at least 6 hours turning meat occasionally to marinate other side.

Preheat oven to 350. Line foil on baking tray combined with slotted tray (broiling pan). Add 1/2 cup water to bottom of pan to help steam ribs so they are tender and not dry. Place ribs on slotted tray and bake 1 hour. Turn to other side and bake for 15 minutes. Brush unused sauce over ribs and broil for 5 minutes or put on grill for 5 minutes. Baste with warm honey when taken off grill or away from broiler. Cut and serve.

*True hoisin sauce has soy in it. If you do not have soy sauce in it then it is not a good sauce. You can make your own by using 5 Tbl. ketchup and 3 Tbl. of soy sauce.
