Roasted Spareribs With Honey and Soy

READY IN: 2hrs

These are a real crowd pleaser. You may need to double this recipe. Ideally, ask your butcher to chop the spare ribs into short lengths, about 2 1/2 inches long, so they're easy to eat with your fingers.

These are incredible. The flavour is fantastic, and easy? I'll say it is. I used baby back ribs, and left out the ginger as I'm not a fan. Other than that....made as posted. I do believe this is going to be my 'special' rib recipe. :) Thanks Chili Spice for *another* wonderful recipe. Made for the Auzzie/NZ Recipe Swap #29.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the ribs in a wide baking pan, cover loosely with foil and cook in a preheated 350 degree F for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, remove any seeds from lemon and orange and place in a food processor with the ginger, garlic, onion, soy sauce, rice wine, seven-spice powder, honey and sesame oil. Process until smooth.
  3. Pour off any fat from the spare ribs, then spoon the pureed mixture over the spare ribs. Toss the ribs to coat evenly.
  4. Return the ribs to the oven at 400 degrees F and roast for about 40 minutes, turning and basting them occasionally, or golden brown. Serve hot.
