Expert Tips

To bake riblets, prepare as directed in steps 1 and 2. Heat oven to 450°F. Place riblets in 15x10x1-inch pan lined with foil. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, without turning, until ribs are well glazed.

The heat level among brands of chili paste varies a lot. If you want spicier ribs, add 1 to 2 tablespoons more chili paste.
