  1. Thinking about trying something different this weekend. Anyone have any Asian style rib recipes they'd be willing to share? Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    I have not, but think the idea is a good one.
    I would do soy sauce, ginger and scallions in a marinade. Dry then smoke. Maybe cut some sesame oil with canola and brush during the last hour. Careful sesame oil will burn and it has a strong flavor. Don't forget to sprinkle with a little 5 spice powder.

    This is one of those you gotta trust me man!, type recipes. OK, now here it is.

    The rub:
    the recipe is just make a balance of the flavors

    chile pepper
    orange juice, and zest
    a touch of star anise and cinnamon

    smoke until tender over cherry or any fruit wood

    then are you ready.......
    cut them in to 1's or 2's then deep fry them to make them crispy on the outside but still juicy in the middle, 375 f. oil.

    then a light toss with hoisen sauce and rice wine vinegar.

    The slaw to go with:
    Shredded Daikon Radish ( the long white one)
    shredded carrot (the long orange one, lol)
    poppy seed,
    Rice vinegar
    drop of sesame oil.

    Here's a recipe I have for Chinese BBQed Pork. I'm sure it could be adapted for ribs.

    Chinese Barbecued Pork

    To facilitate cleanup, spray the rack and pan with vegetable oil spray. The pork will release liquid and fat during the cooking process, so be careful when removing the pan from the oven. If you don't have a wire rack that fits in a rimmed baking sheet, substitute a broiler pan, although the meat may not darken as much. Pay close attention to the meat when broiling-you are looking for it to darken and caramelize, not blacken. Do not use a drawer broiler--the heat source will be too close to the meat. Instead, increase the oven temperature in step 5 to 500 degrees and cook for 8 to 12 minutes before glazing and 6 to 8 minutes once the glaze has been applied; flip meat and repeat on second side. This recipe can be made with boneless country-style ribs, but the meat will be slightly drier and less flavorful. To use ribs, reduce the uncovered cooking time in step 4 to 20 minutes and increase the broiling and glazing times in step 5 by 2 to 3 minutes per side. This dish is best served with rice and a vegetable side dish. Leftover pork makes an excellent addition to fried rice or an Asian noodle soup.
    Serves 6

    pound boneless pork butt (Boston butt) , cut into 8 strips and excess fat removed, see illustrations below (also see illustrations for removing the bone from a bone-in pork butt, if necessary)

    cup sugar

    cup soy sauce

    tablespoons hoisin sauce

    cup dry sherry

    teaspoon ground white pepper

    teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder

    tablespoon toasted sesame oil

    tablespoons grated fresh ginger (from 4- to 6-inch piece)

    medium cloves garlic , minced or pressed through a garlic press (about 2 teaspoons)

    cup ketchup

    cup honey

    1. Using fork, ***** pork 10 to 12 times on each side. Place pork in large plastic zipper-lock bag. Combine sugar, soy, hoisin, sherry, pepper, five-spice powder, sesame oil, ginger, and garlic in medium bowl. Measure out 1/2 cup marinade and set aside. Pour remaining marinade into bag with pork. Press out as much air as possible; seal bag. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 4 hours.

    2. While meat marinates, combine ketchup and honey with reserved marinade in small saucepan. Cook glaze over medium heat until syrupy and reduced to 1 cup, 4 to 6 minutes.

    3. Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 300 degrees. Line rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and set wire rack on sheet.

    4. Remove pork from marinade, letting any excess drip off, and place on wire rack. Pour 1/4 cup water into bottom of pan. Cover pan with heavy-duty aluminum foil, crimping edges tightly to seal. Cook pork for 20 minutes. Remove foil and continue to cook until edges of pork begin to brown, 40 to 45 minutes.

    5. Turn on broiler. Broil pork until evenly caramelized, 7 to 9 minutes. Remove pan from oven and brush pork with half of glaze; broil until deep mahogany color, 3 to 5 minutes. Using tongs, flip meat and broil until other side caramelizes, 7 to 9 minutes. Brush meat with remaining glaze and continue to broil until second side is deep mahogany, 3 to 5 minutes. Cool for at least 10 minutes, then cut into thin strips and serve.

    STEP BY STEP: Removing the Bone from Pork Butt
    1. Position meat with fat cap facing up and visible part of bone facing you. Insert boning knife just above bone and, with short, sweeping strokes, follow the contour of the bone to separate the meat.
    2. Once meat has been separated on top side, flip pork butt over and repeat on other side until bone is completely detached and can be easily removed with your hand.
    STEP BY STEP: Chinese BBQ
    1. Prick: Using fork, ***** pork 10 to 12 times on each side.
    2. Marinate: Place pork and marinade in bag and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
    3. Roast: Place pork on rack set in foil-covered baking sheet; add water.
    4. Glaze: Turn oven to broil and brush pork with glaze.
    STEP BY STEP: Butchering Pork Butt
    1. Cut roast in half lengthwise.
    2. Turn each half on cut side and slice lengthwise into 4 equal pieces.
    3. Trim excess hard, waxy fat, leaving some fat to render while cooking.
  6. Thanks for the tips guys. Some good ideas here. Didn't make it to town today for ingredients so I'm just going to do them regular style tomorrow. Not that there's anything wrong with that. [​IMG]
