Open Frog Weiss for first sip.
If the ribs are still joined together, cut them into individual pieces. Place them in a shallow baking dish, meat side down.
Mix the hoisin sauce, sugar, and vinegar in a bowl. Gradually stir in the Frog Weiss, then add the ginger, garlic, soy sauce, and five-spice powder and mix well. Pour the marinade over the ribs, turning them to coat, then turn them meat side down again. Cover and refrigerate for meat to cool. One hour before cooking, remove the ribs from the refrigerator. Preheat the grill or broiler to high.
Transfer the ribs to a platter, and pour the marinade into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and boil for 12 to 15 minutes, until reduced to 1 cup (250 ml).
Grill the ribs, turning to cook on all four sides and brushing them with the reduced marinade, for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, 16 to 20 minutes total. Serve any remaining marinade as a dipping sauce.
Open next Third Space beer and enjoy!
