Orange Black Bean Marinade:


Pour enough water into shallow roasting pan to come scant 1/2 inch (1 cm) up side. Cut ribs into 2-rib portions; place, meaty side up, in single layer in water. Cover and steam-roast in 325°F (160°C) oven until meat is tender, 75 to 90 minutes. Transfer to large glass baking dish, discarding cooking liquid.

Orange Black Bean Marinade: In bowl, whisk together black bean sauce, orange rind and juice, honey, vinegar and salt. Remove 1/4 cup (50 mL) and reserve for basting on grill. Brush remaining marinade all over ribs. Cover and refrigerate ribs and reserved marinade for 4 hours, turning and brushing ribs with marinade in dish at least once. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Place ribs on greased grill over medium-high heat; brush with any marinade left in dish. Close lid and grill, turning at least once and basting with reserved marinade, until browned and glossy, 10 to 15 minutes. Sprinkle with green onion.
