4 NAPKIN CRANBERRY-ASIAN STICKY RIBS
2 tablespoons Dish off the Block Ragin’ Cajun Spice Blend
3 tablespoons brown sugar
5-pounds pork belly ribs
1, 8-ounce jar Cape Cod Cranberry Harvest Cranberry Ginger Jelly
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
¼ cup rice wine vinegar
Combine the Cajun spice blend and brown sugar in a small bowl. Rub the ribs all over with the spice and sugar mix. Let marinade for 3 hours or overnight. Bring to room temperature 30 minutes before cooking.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place the ribs in a large baking dish, in one layer, and cover tightly with foil. Bake for 1 ½ hours.
While the ribs are cooking, combine the jelly, Dijon, hoisin, and vinegar in a small saucepan. Cook for 3 minutes over medium heat, stirring frequently until reduced by ⅓.
Remove ribs from the oven and brush with the sauce, reserving about ½ cup. Increase the oven temperature to 375 and cook ribs, uncovered, for an additional 30 minutes.
Remove from oven and brush with the remaining sauce. Garnish with sesame seeds and scallions.
