Asian Ribs #BBQWeek

 This post is sponsored in conjunction with #BBQWeek. The sponsors, Rainier Foods and Intensity Academy, generously provided samples to participants to aid in the creation of the #BBQWeek recipes and prize packages to give away to the readers. However, all opinions are mine alone.

Tender, fall off the bone, baby back ribs with an Asian Spiced Rub and Sour Cherry Glaze bumps up your next barbecue to a whole new level of deliciousness.

Asian Ribs

Join us as we continue or BBQ Week Celebration.......
Welcome to the 2022 edition of BBQ Week.  I am so happy to be participating in this years event.  So excited, in fact, that I am joining in the fun even though, as you read this, I am relaxing and enjoying a vacation in Cabo San Lucas.

Luckily, I was able to prepare all of my recipes before we left and I will be sharing them with you while I'm sitting at the pool at our resort.  On Monday I kicked things of f with a Middle-Eastern recipe of Beef Kafta. Today I am going Asian with these scrumptions ribs that you are going to love. 

These ribs are glazed with a sauce that I made using my homemade tart cherry preserves with produce from our daughter's tree.  I am sharing a link to that recipe but if you can always use commercial tart cherry preserves as well.

Prep time: 15 MinCook time: 2 H & 30 MInactive time: 1 HourTotal time: 3 H & 45 M


  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 T. ginger paste
  • 2 t. five spice powder
  • 1 t. ground coriander
  • large pinch kosher salt
  • 1 rack baby back ribs
  • 1/4 c. tart cherry preserves
  • 1 T. honey
  • juice from 1/2 an orange
  • 2 T. soy sauce
  • 2 T. Char sui sauce


  1. Combine the garlic, ginger, five spice powder, coriander and salt in a small bowl.
  2. Rinse and pat dry the ribs. Rub all over with the spice mixture and set aside for at least an hour.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the preserves, honey, orange juice, soy sauce and char sui in a food processor and pulse until cherries are pureed. Remove to a small bowl and set aside.
  4. Heat half of a gas grill on high, leaving the other burners off for indirect cooking. Place the ribs on a double layer of aluminum foil, drizzle with some olive oil and seal. Place on the half of the grill that has indirect heat, close the lid and cook for 45 minutes.
  5. Unwrap the ribs and brush with some of the glaze. Reseal the foil and cook for another 30 minutes. Open the foil packet and check ribs for tenderness. If they need more cooking time, brush with more glaze, reseal and cook for another 15-20 minutes or until the meat is easily pulled from the bone.
  6. Reduce the flame on the direct heat side of the grill to medium. Remove ribs from foil and brush the bone side with the glaze. Place the ribs bone side down onto the direct heat and brush the tops, generously, with the glaze.
  7. Cook for a few minutes to set the glaze then flip the ribs and cook until the glaze is set and charred a bit.
