Spare rib rack
Prepare all ingredients for the char siu ribs. Pat the spare ribs dry with kitchen paper and turn the spare ribs over so that the membrane on the back can be removed. This is best done by loosening the membrane with a knife between the membrane and the bone. If this is successful, pull the membrane off the spare rib. With greasy fingers that get no grip, grab a paper towel to hold the membrane .
Make the teriyaki sauce by bringing the soy sauce with the water, brown caster sugar, sesame oil and black garlic to the boil in a pan. Stir it well with a whisk so that all the caster sugar is dissolved. Mix the cornflour with a little water and stir well. Add the cornflour to the teriyaki sauce and let it thicken a little.
Pour the teriyaki sauce into a large container to allow it to cool. Peel the ginger and finely chop it together with the black garlic. Add the finely chopped ginger and black garlic to the cooled teriyaki sauce.
Finish the marinade by adding the char siu sauce, soy sauce, rice wine, honey, coriander powder and possibly the red coloring to the teriyaki sauce. Mix everything together with a whisk. Remove 100 ml of this marinade from the container and keep it for later in a separate bowl.
Place the spare ribs in the marinade, spoon the marinade over the spare ribs. Cover the tray and let the char siu spareribs marinate until the barbecue is heated up.
Prepare the barbecue at 170 gr. C. with the indirect method.
When the barbecue is at the right temperature, place the char siu ribs in a spare rib rack. Cook the spare ribs for 2 hours with the lid of the barbecue closed. Smoke the spare ribs with cherry pellets or smoking wood.
Just before the 2 hours have passed, heat the 100 ml marinade in a pan and bring it to the boil and let it cook for 5 minutes on low heat.
Remove the spare ribs from the spare rib rack and place them flat on the barbecue grill. Coat the spare ribs generously with the char siu marinade. Then leave the spare ribs in the barbecue for about 30 minutes so that the char siu marinade can caramelise.
Remove the char siu ribs from the barbecue and give them another lick with warm char siu marinade. The spare ribs still have a nice bite, Cut the spare ribs into pieces between the bones.
Serve the char siu ribs as a snack, or with fried rice and atjar.
Have fun with your barbecue!
