Chinese baked pork ribs

Baked spare ribs was adapted from Low-Cholesterol Chinese Cuisine. Prep time includes marinating time. Although the directions are for cooking in the oven, these work equally well on the grill.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 -4 lbs spareribs
  • 1 tablespoon preserved bean curd or 1 tablespoon mild miso (available in asian food stores)
  • 12 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 14 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon garlic paste


  1. Cut spare ribs into 2" long pieces and put in marinating dish (I use a tuperware marinating dish).
  2. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over ribs.
  3. Marinate for at least one hour or up to 8 hours.
  4. Pre-heat oven to 450-degrees F.
  5. Bake ribs in oven for 30 minutes, turning and brushing with marinade every 10 minutes, or until done.
