Firstly I would like to thank everyone for their comments this week and also apologize for the lack of post as I was travelling due to the coming Chinese New Year. Upon my return this afternoon I decided to cook up something a little more unique in the spirit of Chinese New Year.

Preparing this Barbecued Pork Spare Ribs took quite some time but definitely worth the wait. It oozes tantalizing sweetness to any meal and in my opinion best served right out of the oven (or in my case Microwave Oven). It tasted so much different and tender as compared to purchasing it from the coffee shop where it is hung for most likely hours already.

600g Pork Spare Ribs
1/4 cup Soy Sauce
2 tbsp Honey
2 tbsp Hoisin Sauce
2 tbsp Vinegar
1 tbsp Rice Wine or Japanese Sake
2 cloves GarlicGarlic
- minced
2 tbsp Chicken Stock
1 tsp Sugar
1/4 tsp of White Pepper
Black Pepper to taste
Salt to taste

1] Mix all ingredients (except the Spare Ribs) in saucepan.
2] Pour over spare ribs and coat on both sides. Marinate overnight, basting occasionally.
3] Roast ribs on rack in shallow pan in preheated 350 degree (175 C.) oven for one hour.
4] Drain excess fat.
5] Brush sauce over partially cooked ribs.
6] Continue roasting ribs 35 to 45 minutes, basting with the sauce every 10 minutes.
7] My be served hot or at room temperature with Steamed Rice.

Note: If grilling, partially cook ribs as directed above, baste with sauce and grill 20 minutes on each side.

Can I use pork instead of ribs?

Hi there Ivie... yes of course you can but I would suggest marinating the pork for at least 2 hours to make it tender prior to cooking.

Hi Daryl, thanks for the recipe. I made the ribs for dinner tonight and everyone liked it very much.
I did add some five spice powder for the marinate.

The secret ingredient that is missing from your recipe is the applesauce. that is a vital ingredient in any chinese spare rib recipe.
