I love ribs of all kinds and flavors, but once you try these Chinatown Char Siu Ribs, it may be a while before you go back to any other rib recipe! They have such a great sweet-and-savory Asian flavor that is perfect for most any occasion. This recipe is tailored for the oven, but you can adapt it to the grill, as well.
When I was little, my sister and I would beg our parents to order the pupu platter when we went to Chinese restaurants. Of course, part of the appeal was just the funny-sounding name and that cool mini-cauldron in the middle of the platter with the neat-looking flame, and we just about every bit of the appetizers that came on that platter, but our favorite was far and away the Chinese-style ribs, more formally known as Char Siu. I tried this recipe, and I have to say, it may be even better than those delicious ones that I remember from my childhood. It certainly is better than any of the cheap imitations out there.
