For this week’s recipe, I wanted to cook something as a nod to Father’s Day. I chose ribs, which my dad loves. I had intended to go classic Father’s Day Cookout and do barbecue ribs on the grill, but, uh, I don’t know how to grill and didn’t want to ruin a perfectly good rack of ribs as a learning experience. The internet offered recipes for excellent oven-baked ribs, but it’s 95F here every day and our AC is old. In the end, I sort-of-accidentally created a recipe that is a nod to both my dad and to our heritage: Sticky Asian Ribs.

These ribs are slow cooked for several hours, then brushed with glaze and finished under the broiler. They come out falling-off-the-bone tender, but with a fabulous color as well. Prep is quick, and the only part that really requires attention is the glazing and broiling, since broiling can go very burnt very quickly (speaking of, ask my dad about the time with the garlic bread and the smoke alarm. Love you, Daddy!). Easy to make for Dad, in remembrance of Dad, or for Dad to make for the family. Or any time you don’t feel like heating up the oven or grill for fantastic, falling-off-the-bone ribs.
