Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

IT Guy is not a fan of Asian cuisine. He'll indulge me every now and then but basically he stays away from anything with an Asian flair. And that's okay. I've learned that I can make pretty good Chinese food at home and I'll always whip up something different for him. And that's what I did for these ribs. I split them up into two sections and put plain ole bbq sauce on his then for #1 son and myself, I kicked up the flavor! So yummy!!! We polished them off with only a couple to spare!

Asian Glazed Pork Ribs

1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons water
1-1/2 teaspoons white vinegar
1-1/2 teaspoons dark soy sauce
1-1/2 teaspoons sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon chile paste
1/4 clove garlic, minced

Mix all ingredients in a small bowl.

Cover a rimmed cookie sheet with foil. Spray a rack (I use a cookie cooling rack) with cooking spray.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Remove membrane from ribs.

Season both sides of ribs with seasoning salt.

Baste both sides of ribs with glaze every 15 minutes for an hour until ribs are done.

Allow meat to stand at room temp for 15 minutes before slicing ribs apart.

Here's the stuff for the glaze.

And here are the ribs and seasoning salt ready to go in the pan on the rack.

Mix up the glaze ingredients.

Remove the membrane and season the ribs.

Baste the meat on both sides. (The only reason I cut my ribs into two sections was because IT Guy didn't want his "contaminated" with the Asian glaze. Freak.

Then just glaze and flip the ribs every 15 minutes for about an hour until the ribs are done. So yum!!
