1 bottle (12 oz) flavored Lager Beer
½ cup ginger-orange marmalade or pineapple marmalade
¼ cup hoisin sauce
2 TBLS sesame oil
2 TBLS rice vinegar
2 TBLS reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 ½ tsps minced garlic
1 ½ tsps chile paste
2 racks (4 lbs) baby back pork ribs, cut in half crosswise
½ tsp salt
½ tsp black pepper
In large bowl, whisk together Lager Beer, marmalade, hoisin sauce, sesame oil, vinegar, soy sauce and chile paste until well blended. Place ribs in a 2 gallon-size plastic food storage bag; add beer marinade and seal bag. Turn bag several times to coat ribs. Marinate ribs in refrigerator for 6 hours or overnight, if possible.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a broiler-pan bottom with foil for easier cleaning. Remove ribs from refrigerator and pour marinade into a medium saucepan. Place ribs on a broiler-pan rack; cover tightly with foil. Place ribs in oven and roast 1 ¼ hours, or until meat is tender between ribs.
While ribs are roasting, bring reserved marinade to a boil. Boil 12 – 14 minutes, stirring once or twice, until marinade is reduced to a thick glaze and about 1 cup.
Prepare gas or charcoal grill, or preheat broiler. Season ribs with salt and pepper. Brush ribs on both sides with reserved glaze. Place ribs on grill or on broiler-pan rack and under broiler. Grill or broil for 6 – 8 minutes, turning ribs a few times, until slightly charred in a few places.
Transfer ribs to a cutting board. Brush with any remaining glaze. Cut into single-rib portion sizes.
