Recipe by Peter J
READY IN: 1hr 25mins




  • Blanch ribs in boiling water for two minutes.
  • Mix soy sauce, water, sugar, hoisin sauce, ginger, garlic and diced onion in a small bowl.
  • Place ribs into a lightly oiled baking tray to avoid a mess on your BBQ and pour over the sauce mixture. The tray is also necessary so the sauce can be reserved.
  • Cook for 20 minutes over a low heat with the hood of the BBQ closed.
  • Add the sherry and season with pepper, stir to mix and turn over the ribs.
  • Continue cooking over low temperature with hood down for another 40 minutes, stirring and turning ribs several times.
  • Turn the grill section of the BBQ to high and transfer the ribs to the grill. Cook around 5 minutes a side until they are crisp and well browned.
  • Blend chicken stock and cornflour together.
  • While ribs are grilling add chicken stock and cornflour to sauce mixture, increase temperature and stir until sauce has thickened.
  • Serve over boiled rice with sauce poured over top of ribs.
