Naranja Ajo olla de cocción lenta

Naranja Ajo olla de cocción lenta Costillas

Ribs can be assembled in mere minutes and left to cook while you walk away. To finish, the tender ribs are glazed with a honey and hoisin sauce and caramelized under a broiler or on a grill.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup diced yellow onion
  • 3/4 cups hoisin sauce
  • 1/2 cups chicken stock or water
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoons Chinese 5-spice powder*
  • 4 pounds pork back ribs, fat trimmed, cut into 2-rib portions
  • 2 tablespoons honey
Directions
  1. In the slow cooker combine the onion, 1/2-cup hoisin, and the next 5 ingredients and mix well. Add ribs and toss to thoroughly coat. Cover slow cooker and cook until tender, about 5 hours on low.
  2. Preheat broiler to high or a grill to medium-high. In a small bowl, combine remaining 1/4-cup hoisin sauce and honey and mix well.
  3. Transfer ribs to a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet in an even layer. Brush with hoisin mixture and broil ribs until golden brown and sauce is caramelized, about 3 to 5 minutes. If using a grill, cook, turning once, until caramelized, about 5 minutes.
  4. *Chinese 5-Spice Powder: Long a staple in Chinese cooking, this spice blend includes peppercorns, star anise, cloves, cinnamon and fennel. This blend encompasses all five flavours-sweet, sour, bitter, pungent, and salty. Look for it in the spice aisle of larger grocery stores.
  5. Make your own spice mix: Combine 1 tsp Szechwan pepper or ground black pepper, 1 tsp ground star anise, 1 tsp ground fennel seeds, 1/2 tsp ground cloves and 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon. Store unused spice mix in an airtight container, in a cool dry place.
