Pork Spare Ribs

Ingredients (serves 6)

To Prep 15mins – To Cook 50mins

125ml (1/2 cup) honey
80ml (1/3 cup) tomato sauce
60ml (1/4 cup) soy sauce
2 tbs hoisin sauce
3 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tsp finely grated fresh ginger
1 tbs olive oil
1 ½ tsp chilli power or substitute it for sweet chilli sauce
8 (about 1.2kg) pork spare ribs rashes
Vegetable oil, to grease
Steamed jasmine rice, to serve
Mixed salad leaves , to serve


1. Combine the honey, tomato sauce, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, garlic, ginger and chilli powder in a small bowl.
2. Place ribs in a large shallow glass or ceramic dish and pour over the honey mixture, Turn the ribs to evenly coat. Cover with plastic wrap and place in fridge, turning occasionally, for 6 hours or overnight to develop flavours.
3. Preheat over to 210°C. Line a baking dish with foil and pour enough water over the base to cover (this helps to prevent excess marinade from smoking). Brush a wire rack with oil to lightly grease and place in the baking dish over the water. Remover the ribs from the marinade and arrange, in a single layer, on the wire rack. Reserve marinade.
4. Place the reserved marinade in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 1-2 minutes or until sauce thickens slightly.
5. Meanwhile, bake the ribs is the preheated oven, turning and basting occasionally with the marinade, for 40 – 50 minutes or until ribs are golden and sticky. Remove the ribs from oven.
6. Divide the rice among serving plates. Top with spicy pork spare ribs and serve immediately with mixed salad leaves.
