90 Minute Hoisin And Beer Glazed Ribs

Hoisin and Beer Glazed Ribs

Finger Lickin’ Good

At the first Food Truck Invasion, I tried a Hoisin Glazed Duck Taco. Ever since that bite, I’ve wanted to make something with Hoisin for the blog. I’ve never cooked with Hoisin, so I thought it would be a fun challenge.

Huck bought a small rack of Pork Ribs the other day, and I figured Hoisin Glazed Ribs would be perfect. And of course, beer would be part of the recipe.

I love messy ribs from the comfort of my own home. You will not see me ordering a slab of ribs at a restaurant. Mainly because I usually end up with it all over my face, hand, and shirt. The Hoisin and Beer Glaze was gooey and stuck to my fingers. They were sweet with a little kick at the end. Everything, I think good ribs should be.

I originally planned to use a Porter or Stout for this but our local Craft Beer Store wasn’t open yet. We have lots of 90 Minute IPAs on hand, so I decided to go for it. Huck and I both agreed the IPA worked great. I still want to make this with a dark beer to see what the flavor difference would be.

It’s funny I called this recipe the 90 Minute Hoisin and Beer Glazed Ribs because it took about 90 minutes to prep, cook, and photograph everything. I popped the ribs back in the oven after pictures to warm back up. I served these with Roasted Rosemary Potatoes and Green Beans.

Props

I made Huck go with me to the Thrift Store to find props for my blog. He loved it… HA! I, on the other hand, did have a great time and found a few pieces that will come in handy.

I’ve been using large plates for my pictures which can be a challenge. I found a couple of small plates and bowls, a serving bowl, and two cut glasses. I got all of these for less than $7! Money well spent if you ask me.

The snifter didn’t make it long, though. I broke it after bleaching everything in the sink {You don’t know where this stuff has been!!} Luckily, it was only $0.49 and they had a few more. I thought it would be good for food pics, so I’m not filling up a full glass of beer ever photo session. They also had mini mugs and pilsner glasses. I’m going to make a trip back soon. I know Huck is really excited.

Honestly, walking around the Thrift Store is not his thing, but I’m sure he would do it again, in a heart beat, if it meant he had lunch like this every day.

This weekend, we have another Beer Competition in Downtown Abacoa. I’m going to try and enter the Pomegranate Wheat again. This time, I’m wrapping it in bubble wrap before dropping it off.

Wish us luck! You can keep up with my Instagram to see if we win ;)

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
