Remove silverskin from back of ribs. Trim and huge pocket of fat. You want some fat as it will melt and keep the meat tender. 

Mix salt, pepper, mustard powder and five spice together. Rub onto ribs, cover with plastic wrap,  and let them marinate for 30 minutes.
Heat oven to 350F. Put ribs on a broiler pan or racked pan large enough to spread out single file. Put 1 cup of water into the pan and tightly cover with aluminum foil. Bake for 1 hour.

Remove foil and bake for another 1/2 hour.

While ribs are cooking make sauce.

Heat olive oil in saucepan and add onions. Cook until caramelized. Add ginger and garlic and cook a couple minutes more.

Add tomato paste, plum sauce, rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, Dijon mustard and molasses. Heat until boiling. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes.

Raise heat to 425F.

Brush ribs with sauce and bake for 15 minutes.

Turn ribs over and brush other side with sauce and bake for 15 minutes.

Serve with additional sauce.
