5-ingredient honey-miso ribs

Based on 8 ratings

“Based on a recipe in Smitten Kitchen Everyday by Deb Perelman, these sticky, umami, fall-off-the-bone ribs might not make it to the weeknight table, but make a great, hands-off meal for the weekend. They make a great case for eating more ribs outside of grilling season, and are so incredibly easy to make—they’re foolproof.”

  • Step 4/4

    When the ribs are done, unwrap them and transfer to another foil-lined baking sheet. Place scallions all around the ribs. Turn on the grill function of your oven at the highest setting. Brush ribs with glaze on the bone side, then broil until bubbly and caramelized. Remove and flip then brush with remaining glaze. Broil until scallions are slightly charred and ribs are caramelized, approx. 5 min. Slice ribs into portions and serve with scallions and cooked jasmine rice, if desired. Enjoy!
