  • 2.25 pounds baby back pork ribs

Brown Sugar Rib Rub

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt - course
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin

Sticky Asian Sauce

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, fresh grated
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes


  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • On the back of the rack of ribs, score the white membrane in a one inch diagonal pattern using a sharp knife or completely remove the white membrane.
  • Stir the brown sugar rib rub ingredients together in a small bowl. Pat the rub mixture over the front and back of the slab of ribs.
  • Place the ribs meat side up on a baking sheet that has been greased or lined with foil or parchment. Cover tightly with foil.
  • Bake the covered ribs for 2 - 2.5 hours. Test for tenderness and if the meat is easily pulling away from the bone. Cook for an additional half an hour if needed.
  • Place the Sticky Asian Sauce ingredients in a small sauce pan. Bring to a low boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Let the sauce cool to thicken.
  • When desired rib tenderness is reached, remove the foil.
  • Turn the oven to broil. Brush the ribs with the Sticky Asian Sauce. Broil for 2-3 minutes and then brush with sauce again. Broil an additional 2-3 minutes until the sauce starts to caramelize.
  • Garnish with any left over sauce, sesame seeds, and sliced green onions.
