The executive chef of The Dutch in New York shares his recipe for Asian Ribs and Napa Slaw with Spike.

Not only are these some seriously delicious ribs, they're secretly super easy to make. Especially if you have the recipe in front of you. And wouldn't you know it? Here it is.

New School Asian Ribs

Recipe courtesy of Andrew Carmellini/ Men's Health Magazine

Rub

2 Tbsp Chinese five spice powder
1 tsp chipotle pepper powder
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp salt
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

Sauce
1/3 cup hoisin sauce
1/3 cup ketchup
1/3 cup rice-wine vinegar
2 tbsp black bean sauce

Finish
3 Scallions
1 Tbsp sesame seeds

1 In a small bowl, mix the dry ingredients together to make a rub. Cut a piece of foil a little longer than the rib rack; place the foil on a baking sheet and lay the ribs on top. Sprinkle both sides of the meat with the rub, massaging it in. Refrigerate the ribs, uncovered, for 2 hours so the rub infuses the meat.

2 Preheat the oven to 250°F. Fold the foil around the ribs so all the meat is covered, but leave a small vent on top. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 3 hours. Then reduce the heat to 225°F and bake until the meat is very tender, about 2 hours more. Meanwhile, whisk the sauce ingredients with 2 tablespoons of water in a bowl.

3 When the ribs are done, unwrap them and place the rack directly on the baking sheet. Pour any cooking juices into the bowl with the rib sauce, and stir them in. Brush both sides of the ribs generously with the sauce.

4 Raise the oven temperature to 400°F; return the ribs to the oven and bake them until the sauce caramelizes slightly, 5 to 10 minutes. Brush the ribs with more sauce, sprinkle with scallions and sesame seeds, and serve with the remaining sauce for dipping. Makes 3 to 4 servings as an appetizer.
