4 servings


  • 2 racks Smithfield® All Natural Fresh Pork Baby Back Ribs, cut into 3- to 4-rib sections

  • 2 cups hoisin sauce

  • ¼ cup rice wine vinegar

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh ginger

  • 1 tablespoon red chili flakes

  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar

  • 3 tablespoons chopped scallions or green onions


  1. Mix together all ingredients except ribs and scallions. Place rib pieces in resealable plastic bag; pour about 3/4 marinade over ribs. Seal bag and refrigerate for 2 hours or up to overnight. The longer you can marinate, the longer the flavors have time to work into the ribs.

  2. Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Remove rib pieces from marinade and place on a large enough piece of aluminum foil to loosely encase ribs. Spoon some of the marinade over the ribs; fold foil over ribs and seal.

  3. Place rib package in roasting pan and place in the 325 degree F. oven. Cook until ribs are tender, about 2 hours.

  4. Turn oven up to 450 degrees F. Remove ribs from foil and place back on roasting pan, meat side up. Return ribs to oven and roast until nicely browned and glazed.

  5. Coat ribs with reserved marinade and sprinkle with scallions. Serve with jasmine rice.
