P.F. Changs Spare Ribs

Randal's favourite thing on the PF Changs menu is the spare ribs.  I always know that when we go to Changs we will be getting the ribs, and luckily for Randal they are one of the only ribs I will actually eat, their Asian style bbq sauce is just so much better than ordinary bbq.  This copycat version tastes identical to the original and Randal loves being able to have the ribs anytime he wants to now!

1 cup ketchup
1 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup hoisin sauce
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup light brown sugar
2 tbsp minced onion
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1 rack pork spare ribs
4 cups vegetable oil
1 tsp sesame seeds

In a medium saucepan, add the ketchup, corn syrup, hoisin sauce, water, sugar, onion and vinegar.  Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.  Set aside.

Fill a large pan with water, bring to a boil and add a teaspoon of salt.  Slice the ribs into individual ribs and add to the boiling water, boil for 12 minutes, set aside to cool.

Heat vegetable oil in a large pan to 375.  Drop the ribs into the hot oil and fry for 2 or 3 minutes.  Toss the ribs with the sauce and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
