  • 6 lb pork baby back ribs about 2 racks


  • 2 tbs brown sugar
  • 1 tbs kosher salt
  • 1 tbs garlic finely minced
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tbs cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup cilantro
  • 1 chili pepper finely minced


  • 3 cups pineapple juice
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup mirin
  • 3 tbs brown sugar
  • 2 tbs rice vinegar


  • Place all marinade ingredients in a food processor and pulse a few times. Rub the mixture onto the ribs. Place ribs in a covered dish or large freezer bags and marinate overnight.
  • You can make the glaze ahead of time as well (recommended). Place all glaze ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat so you have a medium simmer (some bubbles on top of the liquid) and reduce until it’s a syrupy consistency—this will take about 1 hour. Season to taste with salt and you may like a splash (about 1 tsp) of fresh lemon juice added.
  • Line a baking sheet with either parchment or aluminum foil. Place ribs on the sheet and roast in a 350F/180C oven for about 2 hours. Basting with glaze during the last 15 minutes of cooking.
  • Brush with additional glaze then cut into individual rubs. Serve remaining glaze as a dip if you desire.


Mirin is a sweet sake-like condiment. You will find it in the Asian section of the store.
