Sous Vide - Hoisin-Glazed Spare Ribs
By :The Instant Pot Ultimate Sous Vide Cookbook by Jason Logsdon
Print Recipe
Spare ribs can sometimes be overly rich and fatty, so I like to pair them with a sweet, spicy, and acidic glaze to help round out the taste. Once the ribs are sous vided, they are brushed with the glaze during the searing process, coating them with flavor and caramelizing the glaze. If you like an even heavier glaze, you can chill the ribs after sous viding them to increase the amount of time they can be seared. These ribs are cooked at 140°F, which results in a chop like texture with a lot of bite to it. If you want a more traditional texture, you can raise the temperature between 156°F and 176°F while reducing the sous vide time.

Instructions
For the Pork Spare Ribs
  1. Preheat a water bath to 140°F.
  2. Mix the spices together in a small bowl. Salt and pepper the ribs, then sprinkle with the spices. Place the pork in a sous vide bag and seal it. Place the bag in the water bath and cook for 1 to 2 days until tenderized.
For the Hoisin Glaze
  1. To prepare the glaze, mix together all the ingredients in a bowl until combined well.
To Assemble
  1. Take the sous vide bag out of the water and remove the cooked ribs.
  2. Dry them off thoroughly, using paper towels or a clean dish cloth.
  3. Lightly salt the spare ribs, then brush with the hoisin glaze. Quickly sear the ribs for 1 minute per side, then add more glaze and sear for another minute. Repeat a few times until the glaze has coated the ribs. Remove the ribs from the heat. Cut the racks of ribs into sections of 1 or 2 ribs and place them on a plate. Sprinkle with the cilantro and sesame seeds, then serve.

    Sous vide takes a looooong time, so that time is probably correct. Not my thing, but some say it’s amazing.

    maikinh currently and so far after cooking 22.5 hours they look amazing. Making sauce formlast steo.

    For those who were questioning the time… Even if you slow cook D’s in a slow cooker at a temperature below 160° it would take about the same amount of time. The sous vide makes incredible food! Probably the best steaks I’ve ever eaten.

    That is the correct time. Sous-vide cooking time can range from minutes to days depending on what you are cooking. Utilizing the low temperature and long cooking time this recipe calls for produces juicey ribs as their is more juices retained at lower heats.
