In the Midwest, we love grilling ribs. Grilled ribs are a staple for cookouts, as well as, for many Midwestern barbecue restaurants.
Honey-Hoisin Grilled Ribs is a tasty alternative to the traditional Midwest ribs.
When you plan to grill ribs, you need to prepare in advance. The rub for the ribs needs to marinate on the meat for at least an hour.
Also, the ribs will need to be on the grill for several hours. If you are planning to have the ribs as your part of your meal, I would suggest serving it for supper.
This will allow you to prepare and grill all day. You already have the grill fired up and the ribs will taste great with this Grilled Potato Salad Recipe.
Another suggestion I have is to use a timer. Time ticks away faster than you think.
You don’t want to be left guessing when you need to apply the next coat of sauce. While I was grilling my ribs, I used a time so I knew when to apply sauce and to flip the ribs.
You will know when your ribs are fully cooked when the meat almost falls off the bone. We tested the ribs by slicing the ribs to see how tender the meat was.
INTERVIEW WITH CHEF BILLY PARISI
What is your favorite meal to grill?
I’d have to say a beer can chicken with roasted vegetables or a simple juicy homemade burger with bacon and caramelized onions!
Do you prefer to grill with gas or charcoal and why?
I use gas because I’m usually under some time constraints and need the grill hot and quick. However if I do have time, I LOVE cooking on wood. There is no better taste on a grill than wood, none!
What is your go-to seasoning for grilled dishes and why?
I’m a purest here and believe in properly seasoning, and seasoning well, with Sea or Kosher salt and Fresh Cracked pepper! Yup, it’s that easy!
What is your favorite cut of meat to grill and why?
My favorite cut of meat of course which is a big fat juicy New York Strip Steak!Yum! Honey-Hoisin Grilled Ribs!

A Delicious alternative to the traditional Midwest grilled ribs.
- 2 full racks of pork baby back ribs

- Preheat your grill to a medium heat.
- In a medium sauce pan, whisk together the hoisin, honey, LA CHOY® Soy Sauce, apple cider, Hunt’s® Tomato Ketchup, and apple cider vinegar. (I put the pan on low heat on the stove just long enough to help mix the ingredients together)
- After the ribs have marinated, place them on the grill bone side down on the coolest part of the grill. Baste with the honey-hoisin sauce. Baste the ribs every 30 minutes.
- After 90 minutes on the grill, flip the ribs over and grill for 60 minutes. Basting the ribs every 30 minutes.
