A unique and surprising combination of hoisin sauce and blackberry preserves gives a whole new dimension of flavor to country-style pork ribs.
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced 2
  • 1 tsp minced gingerroot 5 mL
  • 1⁄2 tsp hot pepper flakes 2 mL
  • 1⁄2 tsp kosher salt 2 mL
  • 1⁄4 tsp freshly ground black pepper 1 mL
  • 1⁄2 cup blackberry preserves 125 mL
  • 1⁄4 cup hoisin sauce 60 mL
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar 30 mL
  • 11⁄2 lbs boneless country-style pork ribs, cut into 6 equal pieces 750 g
  • 1 lb green beans, trimmed 500 g
  • 1 tbsp virgin olive oil, divided 15 mL
  • 1 small leek (white and light green parts only), thinly sliced into rings
  1. • Preheat oven to 350∞F (180∞C)
  2. • 6 sheets heavy-duty foil, sprayed with nonstick cooking spray
  3. In a medium bowl, combine garlic, ginger, hot pepper flakes, salt, pepper, preserves, hoisin sauce and vinegar.
  4. Place a piece of pork on each prepared foil sheet. Coat all sides of pork with sauce.
  5. In a bowl, toss green beans with half the oil. Arrange around pork, dividing evenly. Fold foil into tent-style packets and seal edges tightly. Place packets on a baking sheet.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 35 minutes or until pork is fork-tender. Remove packets from oven and let rest, without opening, for 10 minutes.
  7. Meanwhile, in a medium skillet, heat the remaining oil over medium-high heat. Add leek and cook, stirring and separating rings, until slightly crispy. Using a slotted spoon, transfer leek rings to a plate lined with paper towels.
  8. Transfer pork to plates, drizzle with sauce from foil and garnish with crispy leeks. Serve green beans on the side.
  9. Tips
  10. Raspberry or blueberry preserves would also be delicious in place of the blackberry preserves.
  11. If you can only find bone-in country-style ribs, youíll need 2 lbs (1 kg). When placing them on the foil, take care that the bones do not pierce the foil.
