Grilled Chinese Pork Back Ribs

Created by Jenn's Food Journey

1 rack pork back ribs
For the rub -
1/2 teaspoon Chinese 5 spice
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon hot mustard powder (you can use regular dry mustard)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
For the sauce -
2 Tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
1 1/2 Tablespoons hoisin sauce
1 Tablespoon rice vinegar
1/4 teaspoon Chinese 5 spice
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 garlic clove, finely minced
2 Tablespoons ketchup
3 Tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon Sriracha


In a small bowl, mix together all the ingredients for the rub.  Rinse the ribs and pat dry.  Rub the rub mixture all over the ribs, wrap in plastic wrap, and place in the refrigerator for 6 to 8 hours or over night.

To make the sauce:  In a small saucepan over medium heat, add all the ingredients and mix until well combined.  Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.  Once sauce comes to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.   Remove from heat and allow to cool.  (reserve a little for dipping if you would like)

When you are ready to grill - preheat your grill to 375 degrees.  Wrap the ribs in aluminum foil and grill over indirect heat for 1 hour.  Carefully remove the ribs from the foil and place directly over the heat.  Allow to grill for another 15-20 minutes, basting periodically with the sauce.  Remove and allow to rest for at least 5 minutes before cutting into.  Enjoy!
