Chinese Boneless Spare Ribs

Chinese Boneless Spare Ribs
These Chinese Boneless Spare Ribs are ridiculously easy to make! You can make these spare ribs three ways – the oven, air fryer and crock pot!
  • 3 pounds pork tenderloin or boneless pork chops cut into strips
  • ½ cup hoisin sauce
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • ½ cup red wine
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground coriander
  • Pinch of cloves
  • Fresh black pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup BBQ sauce
  1. Combine the ingredients for the marinade (everything except the BBQ sauce) in a large plastic resealable bag.
  2. Add the pork strips and marinate at least 6 hours or overnight. (Overnight is recommended)
  3. Remove the pork from the marinade, reserving the marinade, and place on a wire rack that’s been sprayed with cooking spray. Place the wire rack over a baking sheet that’s been lined with aluminum foil.
  4. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes.
  5. While the pork is cooking, pour the marinade into a pot and bring to a boil. Let the marinade boil for 2-3 minutes, then stir in the BBQ sauce. Let the sauce simmer over low heat while the pork is cooking.
  6. Remove the pork from the oven, baste with the sauce then bake again for 7-8 minutes until the edges of the pork are crisp.
  7. Baste the pork one more time with the sauce before serving, if desired.
  8. Air Fryer:
  9. Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees.
  10. Add the pork in a single layer and cook for 4 minutes. Remove the pork from the air fryer, baste generously with the sauce (follow the instructions above for the sauce) and cook another 4 minutes until the pork is crispy.
  11. Baste with more sauce if desired and serve.
  12. Slow Cooker:
  13. Spray the inside of your slow cooker with non stick cooking spray.
  14. Drain the marinade from the pork (reserving the marinade) and add the pork to the slow cooker.
  15. Cook on low for 4-6 hours. (The longer you cook the spare ribs the softer the pork will be)
  16. Pour the reserved marinade into a pot and bring to a boil for 2-3 minutes. Add the barbecue sauce and let simmer over low heat for 5 minutes.
  17. Toss the pork with the sauce sand serve
