Chinese Baby Back Ribs

Asian spices and Bourbon bring this recipe to the next level

Prepare a zip style or a vacuum sealable bag large enough to accommodate the ribs and sauce. In a small bowl combine hoisin sauce, Bourbon, ¼ cup honey, Hei-Jin 'Rich' Soy SauceToasted Sesame Seeds, hot sauce, Ground GingerOnion PowderGarlic PowderGround Yellow Mustard SeedsHibiscus Powder, and 1 tablespoon Chinese Five Spice.  Place the individual ribs inside the sealable bag and pour 3/4ths of the liquid over the ribs.  Save the remaining sauce for basting later.  Seal the bag.  Marinate overnight in the refrigerator.

Preheat oven to 250°.  Allow ribs to heat up to room temperature.  Prepare a baking rack in a baking pan with an inch of water below.  Arrange the ribs on the baking rack, cover, and cook for 3 hours.  Drizzle remaining marinade over the ribs and cook covered for another 30 minutes on 350°. Garnish with sliced green onions and Toasted Sesame Seeds.  Serve with our Black Japonica Rice.
