Spicy Cranberry Riblets


These two-bite ribs are perfect for the appetizer table, or to accompany a televised football game. They’re easy to do and will score you big points for entertaining.


  • 3 pounds pork back ribs (cut lengthwise across bones in half, have butcher do this)
  • 1 cup whole berry cranberry sauce
  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chili paste (ground fresh, available in Asian section of supermarket)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Heat oven to 250 degrees F. Cut ribs between bones into serving pieces. Place ribs, meaty side up, in single layer in shallow baking pans. Roast uncovered for 1 1/2 hours. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, mix remaining ingredients for sauce. Raise oven temperature to 375 degrees F. Brush ribs with half of sauce mixture; bake uncovered 20 minutes, until ribs are tender and sauce is nicely glazed. Heat remaining sauce to boiling and serve alongside ribs for dipping.
