How to make it
- -- For the ribs --
- In a deep, lidded stockpot large enough to contain the ribs, place all of the ingredients except the ribs. Set the heat on medium-high and heat until bubbles just break the surface.
- Reduce the heat to medium, add the ribs , and, if necessary, add enough water to keep the ribs submerged.
- Cover the pot and cook gently until the ribs are tender but not falling apart, 30 to 60 minutes, depending on their size.
- Remove the ribs from the pot.
- Reserve the cooking liquid, skimming off any fat from the surface, and set aside to cool.
- Strain the reserved liquid through a fine-mesh strainer and place 6 cups of it in a pot over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil and reduce by half. If not using immediately for the sauce, let the reduced stock cool, then cover and refrigerate.
- -- For the sauce --
- In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the oil.
- Add the onion, ginger and garlic and cook until softened, 3 to 5 minutes.
- Except for the 3 cups of reserved stock, add all the remaining ingredients, including salt and pepper to taste, and cook for 10 minutes.
- Add the 3 cups of stock and cook, with bubbles just breaking the surface, for 30 to 45 minutes.
- Strain into a medium bowl and let cool. If not using immediately, cover and refrigerate.
- When ready to cook, reserve 2 to 3 cups sauce for dipping.
- -- If using a gas grill, preheat the grill to medium.
- -- If using a charcoal grill, start the charcoal or wood briquettes. When the briquettes are ready, distribute them evenly under the cooking area for direct heat (not too hot to prevent burning).
- Lightly oil the grate. Place the ribs on the grill and baste the top with sauce.
- Cover the grill to produce smoke.
- Cook for 4 to 6 minutes.
- Turn the ribs over and baste the other side. Cook, covered, for 4 to 6 minutes, taking care not to burn the sauce.
- Meanwhile, heat the remaining sauce.
- To serve, pile the ribs on a platter and serve with the heated sauce on the side
