Hoisin Baby Back Ribs

Another recipe from a BMCC member. If you want to add the Sake, you might need to go to a Japanese grocery store to buy it. That's where I bought mine.

Hoisin Baby Back Ribs (very yummy)

5 lbs baby back ribs
2 inch piece fresh ginger, sliced plus 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
1 cup sugar
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup oyster sauce
1/3 cup hoisin sauce
1 clove garlic crushed
3 T sake
cilantro for garnish

Cut racks into individual ribs. Place in a large pot and cover with water. Add slices of ginger. Boil gently 1 to 1-1/2 hours. Drain ribs, discarding ginger. Combine sugar, ketchup, soy sauce, oyster sauce, hoisin sauce, grated ginger, garlic and sake. Marinate the cooked ribs in this mixture 4-5 hours in the refrigerator. Preheat broiler. Place ribs in a roasting pan and broil 15 minutes, turning if necessary. Garnish with cilantro.

FYI: I don't put the sake in because I can't find it at the supermarket! And we usually barbque them instead of broiling. They only take a second because they're already cooked.
