On the Menu: Char Sue Pork Ribs

Spare ribs are a mainstay at just about every takeout Chinese place out there.  Everyone loves great ribs, plus a restaurant named “Char Sue” would be remiss if it didn’t have at least one hanging pork in the window!   The ribs are first marinated in a garlic brine.  Then they are brought to the precise cooked temperature using our fancy kitchen equipment.  This is done to achieve a very specific effect.  I wanted to make sure the ribs are always soft and juicy, but I also wanted the meat to have some chew, as opposed to the meat falling of the bone ribs you might find at a barbecue joint.  After being cooked to temp, the ribs are grilled and glazed with our secret sauce.
