Panda Express Chinese Spare Ribs

Update: We reviewed it! Click here for our review.

Panda Express has ventured into an area in the fast food world that only Burger King has traveled through — bone-in ribs.

Panda Express’ new Chinese Spare Ribs are St. Louis cut and slow-cooked for five hours. Then they’re wok-fired in Panda Express’ Chinese BBQ sauce that’s made up of sesame oil, mirin, garlic, red chili bean paste, and dried red chili flakes. The sauce was inspired by Char Siu, which is a traditional Chinese barbecued pork and something I thought Panda Express offered.

Panda Express’ Chinese Spare Ribs have a $1.25-$1.50 upcharge and are available until July 28.

A serving has 370 calories, 25 grams of fat, 9 grams of saturated fat, 90 milligrams of cholesterol, 740 milligrams of sodium, 7 grams of carbohydrates, 7 grams of sugar, 1 gram of fiber and 28 grams of protein.

  1. Had them last night. Thought the char siu flavor was very nice, good carmelization as well. The portion is on the smaller side (5, 1.5/2 inch bones) and they are a little drier than ideal but overall pretty nice.
