Root Beer and Sesame Glazed Ribs

Root Beer and Sesame Glazed Ribs

5

"I used easy-to-find lamb shoulder chop steaks instead of Colorado lamb ribs, which were quite delicious but maybe a bit hard to track down. This will work with any rib: baby back, spareribs, beef ribs, you name it. As far as the root beer and toasted sesame glaze goes, as I sat eating the tender lamb with the sweet, aromatic, nutty sauce, I was a believer. The proper way to eat it is with your fingers."

  1. Pour sesame oil, chile-garlic sauce, and 1 teaspoon salt in a bowl. Stir to dissolve salt. Place ribs onto a square of aluminum foil and brush sesame oil mixture onto ribs on both sides. Place ribs into a heavy resealable plastic bag.
  2. Pour root beer over the ribs and seal the bag. Refrigerate at least 12 hours, or overnight. Remove ribs from marinade; reserve marinade in a bowl and keep refrigerated.
  3. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Place a large piece of aluminum foil onto a baking sheet.
  4. Place rib racks, meat-side up, onto the foil and season both sides with salt and black pepper. Place a piece of parchment paper on top of the meat; place another piece of foil over the parchment paper. Fold edges and seal sides to make an airtight package.
  5. Bake ribs in the preheated oven until almost fork-tender, about 2 hours. Open foil packet and test for doneness; a fork inserted into the meat will go in with some effort.
  6. Transfer reserved marinade to a small saucepan. Add garlic, green onions, and rice vinegar to marinade and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-high and cook until sauce is reduced by half, about 5 minutes; stir often.
  7. Pour pan juices from foil packet into saucepan with the sauce. Add Asian chile pepper sauce. Bring back to a simmer and cook sauce until slightly thickened to a glaze, about 5 more minutes.
  8. Increase oven heat to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Line another baking sheet with foil and transfer ribs to baking sheet.
  9. Brush both sides of ribs with thickened glazing sauce. Cook in hot oven until glaze begins to cook onto meat, 6 to 7 minutes. Brush another coat of glaze onto the ribs; repeat 4 more times, cooking 5 to 6 more minutes per time, until meat is shiny, glazed, browned, and fully fork-tender. Brush 1 more coat of glaze onto meat.
  10. Sprinkle ribs with sesame seeds and cook for 5 more minutes to set the last glaze coat.

Delish! Wonderful, full of flavor and not too sweet. I did forget the sesame seeds as a garnish - oh well, nobody noticed. I also did not re-use the marinade but made up a separate batch with...

This didn't turn out for me. I used pork rib tips and the marinade coagulated and solidified when I tried to simmer it down so I had to throw it out. (I always have this problem and will in the ...

Just amazing! I added some ginger, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1tablespoon soy sauce to the glaze. It was out of this world tender.
