Step 1: Preparation of Spare Ribs

Begin your culinary adventure by preparing the spare ribs. Trim off any excess fat from the ribs and give them a good rinse under cold water. For those who like their ribs tender and flavorful, here's a little trick - blanch them. Bring a pot of water to a boil and blanch the spare ribs for about 3 minutes. This step is not just about cleanliness; it’s about preparing the ribs to soak up that delightful marinade. After blanching, rinse them well under cold water and set aside. This prep work promises ribs that are ready to absorb all the flavors we're about to introduce.
Pro Tip: Blanching the ribs first helps in removing impurities and makes them more tender.

Step 2: Marinating the Ribs

The secret to these irresistibly tasty ribs is in the marination. Take the prepared spare ribs and gently coat them with the Red Wine Lees. Add in a tablespoon of soy sauce for that umami kick. The fusion of these ingredients not only tenderizes the ribs but also infuses them with deep, complex flavors. For a seamless mixing, use your hands or a spatula to ensure every rib is generously coated with the marinade. Don’t rush this step; good things come to those who wait. Once well-marinated, place the ribs in a zip-lock bag and let them sit in the fridge. Aim for at least 30 minutes, though no more than an hour, to achieve that perfect balance of flavor without the meat getting tough.
Pro Tip: Ensure each rib is thoroughly coated with the marinade for the best flavor.

Step 3: Baking the Ribs

Preheat your oven to 356 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius) as we get ready to transform these marinated ribs into a baked masterpiece. Line a baking tray with baking paper and arrange the ribs in a single layer. Before sliding them into the oven, drizzle a bit of sesame oil over the ribs for that extra hit of flavor and moisture. Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes, turning the ribs at least twice to ensure an even color and coating. This not only cooks the ribs through but also caramelizes the marinade, creating a layer of flavor that’s simply divine.
Pro Tip: Turning the ribs ensures an even bake and perfect caramelization.

Step 4: Garnishing and Serving

The aroma filling your kitchen is a prelude to the feast that awaits. Once baked to perfection, remove the ribs from the oven and prepare them for their final touch. Sprinkle lightly toasted sesame seeds over the ribs for a subtle crunch and a nutty flavor that complements the rich, savory meat. Arrange the succulent ribs on a serving plate, taking a moment to admire your handiwork before the feast begins. Whether it's a family dinner or a special occasion, these ribs are sure to steal the show.
Pro Tip: Toasting the sesame seeds before garnishing adds an extra layer of flavor.
