    Sweet Chili Beef Ribs

    Sweet Chili Sauce
    1/4 cup water
    2 tablespoons white vinegar
    1/2 teaspoon hoisin sauce
    1/2 small fresh red chile, chopped
    1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar

    In saucepan combine water, vinegar, hoisin sauce, red chile and brown sugar; stir over heat until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil, simmer, uncovered, about 5 minutes or until slightly thickened.

    1/2 cup sweet chili sauce
    1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
    1/4 cup rice wine
    2 cloves garlic, crushed
    1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
    3 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
    3 pounds trimmed beef back ribs

    Combine chili sauce with soy sauce, rice wine, garlic, ginger and cilantro.

    Place ribs in large shallow dish; pour marinade over ribs. Cover tightly; marinate in refrigerator 4 hours or overnight.

    Prepare fire for indirect-heat cooking. Drain ribs; cook in preheated, covered grill, turning occasionally, until browned and crispy all over (about 30 minutes).
