I just may be converted...

from traditional Southern BBQ to this extraordinary Eastern version. Eastern, as in Eastern Asia. Although I never tasted anything even close to this good in China! Of course what I ate in China is a whole other conversation. Anyway, that's why I love food fusion. East meets West in the best way possible with this recipe.

I have to warn you, this recipe makes a lot of food. I cut the recipe in half for my family and we still had left over.

(Recipe adapted from Cuisine at Home)

1 jar hoisin sauce (8 oz.)
½ C. honey
½ C. chicken broth
¼ C. chili garlic sauce
¼ C. rice vinegar
2 T. soy sauce
2 T. toasted sesame oil
2 T. garlic, minced
2 T. fresh ginger, minced

2 T. veg. oil
8 Country style spare ribs or pork chops

1. Combine first 9 ingredients for the BBQ sauce; mix well.
2. Heat the veg. oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
3. Season ribs or chops with salt and pepper.
4. Sauté the meat until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes.
5. Add half the BBQ sauce and bring to a boil.
6. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and allow to cook for 15 minutes.
7. Flip ribs, cover and continue to cook for an additional 15 minutes.
8. Add the rest of the BBQ sauce and continue to cook uncovered for another 15 minutes.
9. Serve over rice.
10. Serves 8 people.

*This recipe could easily be adapted to a crock pot. Follow steps 1 – 4. At this point remove pork from the skillet and put it into a crock pot. Pour the sauce over the top and cook on low for 4-6 hours. The meat will be fall-apart tender. Serve over rice.

Dave is insanely happy. We always venture down the old Korean market in Provo to buy the special sauce dave loves, but this sounds yummy! Trying it for sure.
