For the Beans:

  1. Sauce: In a medium sized pot on high heat with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, caramelize the ginger and onions. Once brown add in all ingredients and let simmer on low heat.
  2. Ribs: Season all sides of the ribs with salt and pepper and cook them on each side of a very hot grill (450° to 550°) for 8 to 10 minutes to get them perfectly golden brown. Once brown remove them from the grill and place them on a sheet pan lined with parchment and using a pastry brush, baste each rib with some of the AsianBBQ sauce. Place the ribs in the oven on 300° for 3 hours. Every 30 minutes re-baste the ribs on all sides with more Asian BBQ sauce. Once cooked, remove from the oven.
  3. Beans: In a large saute pan with 3 tablespoons of olive oil, caramelize the garlic. Once brown, turn the heat down to medium-high add in the green beans and saute for 6 to 8 minutes or until the beans are al dente or cooked to your desired temperature. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. To Plate: Stake up the ribs on a plate topped off with some sesame seeds and serve along side the green beans.
