  1. Heat oven to 350°F Rub the ribs all over with the five-spice powder then salt and pepper to taste; set aside. Stir together the hoisin and plum sauces in a small bowl; brush evenly over the ribs then cut the ribs into 3-5 rib sections.
  2. Place the ribs in a large, oiled roasting pan; cover the pan tightly with foil. Bake until the meat is tender enough to be pierced easily with a fork, about 1 1/2 hours. Remove foil and remove ribs to a platter.
  3. Pour the liquid from the roasting pan into a degreaser or bowl; skim off the fat. Pour the liquid into a large Dutch oven; heat over medium heat. Add the cider, vinegar, tomato paste, honey, ginger, garlic and soy sauce. Cook, stirring often, until the liquid reduces to a syrupy consistency, about 15 minutes.
  4. Cut the ribs into individual pieces; place in the Dutch oven. Heat over medium heat, turning ribs to coat evenly. Transfer ribs to a platter. Pass extra sauce on the side.
