1 cup hoisin sauce

1/3 cup rice vinegar (not seasoned)

1/4 cup honey

2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce

2 tablespoons Sriracha (Asian chile sauce)

1 2-inch piece ginger, peeled and finely grated

3 cloves garlic, finely grated

3 2-pound racks baby back pork ribs

1/2 cup ketchup

2 scallions (white and light green parts only), chopped

Coleslaw, for serving


  1. Combine 1/2 cup hoisin sauce, the vinegar, honey, soy sauce, Sriracha, ginger and garlic in a 6-quart slow cooker. Add the ribs and turn to coat. Cover and cook on low, 6 hours.
  2. Preheat the broiler and line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Transfer 1 cup of the liquid from the slow cooker to a medium bowl; whisk in the remaining 1/2 cup hoisin sauce and the ketchup. Transfer the ribs to the prepared baking sheet and brush both sides generously with the sauce. Broil, bone-side down, until browned and bubbling, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Transfer to a cutting board and slice into individual ribs. Top with more sauce and sprinkle with the scallions. Serve with coleslaw.
