    2 tablespoons Sriracha

    2 tablespoons rice vinegar

    1 tablespoon sesame oil

    2 cloves garlic, minced

    1 tablespoon ginger, minced

    1 teaspoon salt

    1 teaspoon pepper

    ½ rack baby back ribs

    Oil for frying

    ¼ cup soy sauce

    ¼ cup hoisin sauce

    1 tablespoon sesame oil

    2 tablespoons rice vinegar

    ½ cup tablespoons honey


    Toasted sesame seeds

    1. In a large bowl, mix soy sauce, hoisin sauce, honey, Sriracha, rice vinegar, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, salt, pepper, and the ribs.
