  • 2 slabs Smithfield Extra Tender Fresh Pork St. Louis Style Ribs
  • 1/3 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1/3 cup of honey
  • 1/4 cup of tamari sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  • 4 garlic cloves, grossly chopped
  • 1/2 jalapeño pepper, deveined and seeeded
  • 3 scallions, chopped
  • 4 tablespoons of fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons of rice vinegar


  • In a food processor, process all the ingredients but the ribs, until a thick sauce is formed. Reserve and divide.
  • Unpack the ribs and dry them with paper towels.
  • With the help of a paring knife and paper towels, peel the thin membrane that covers the bone side of the ribs and discard it.
  • Cover a tray with aluminum foil, and place the ribs on it.
  • With a brush, evenly coat the ribs, both sides with half of the BBQ sauce. Cover and refrigerate.
  • Let the ribs marinate for at least 1 hour before grilling them.
  • Preheat the grill to medium (325˚F) and grease the grates.
  • Barbecue the ribs over indirect fire in a covered grill for about 45 minutes. Every 15 minutes, flip the ribs and baste them with more BBQ sauce.
  • Barbecue the ribs until the meat thermometer marks 155˚F-160˚F.
  • Serve the ribs immediately and sprinkle with fresh cilantro and green onion.


For a less spicy BBQ sauce, omit jalapeño and substitute hoisin sauce by using ketchup instead.
