These ribs are sweet and savory, and easy to make. The ribs are marinated in a delicious Hoisin-based sauce, which also acts as a final glaze to give the ribs a sweet shiny finish. Hoisin sauce, which is made from ground fermented soy beans, sugar, and spices, imbues the marinade with a savory depth of flavor and the soy sauce and honey in the marinade add sweet and salty accents. Allow at least 2 hours, or better yet overnight, for the meat to soak up the flavors. Watch all of Linda's Grokker Premium videos for delicious recipes made in the style of the Hakka people of China.
