Sparerib Marinade

"I can't remember where I found this recipe, but to me this is the best pork rib marinade out there. Honey and pork is a winning combination and these ribs are finger licking good."

Ready In:




  • Arrange the spareribs in a single layer in a nonmetallic dish.
  • Mix all the ingredients for the marinade together and pour over the spareribs.
  • If you don't really like ginger that much you may find it a bit over powering and would want to reduce it.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours or overnight.
  • Preheat the oven to 190°C and arrange the ribs on the rack of a roasting pan.
  • Oven roast for 50-60 minutes, basting occasionally with the marinade.
  • Turn every 10 minutes.
  • Or just throw them on the BBQ.
  • Cut the ribs into portions and serve.

Questions & Replies

  1. sounds like a delicious recipes without prepaid sauces etc. I always made spicy Malaysian ribs but I lost the recipe unfortunately. I searched on internet for over am hour and this recipe comes closest. this is why I have two things to ask. 1 can I just add chilli powder to make them spicy without killing the recipe? 2 can I also marinade them just rib by rib so only one bone per piece? if so then I assume I have to decrease the time in the oven? and then more frequently? looking forward to hearing from you. thanks
  2. I love the ingredients for the Sparerib Marinade but find the quantities, both US and Metric, very confusing eg how do you measure 1/16 cup cayenne pepper ?? Would you be able to provide cup measurements for the large quantities and spoon measurements for the small amounts please ???? Kind regards Mem ??

  4. Would you adjust anything for lamb ribs? Perhaps cooking time?

  2. Great marinade used it for chicken wings too.....for really succulent ribs we marinate then cook in pressure cooker for 10 mins remove from pressure cooker and finish off under grill or on BBQ. Thicken the marinade sauce using arrowroot to baste the ribs whilst on BBQ or under grill ........yum
  3. My guests loved it. I couldn't find oyster sauce, so I used fish sauce (Asian market). Then finished on the bar BBQ for 30 min on low .. yum yum
  4. Wonderful marinate!
  5. These were great!!! My only comment is that I can't image cooking ribs for only 50-60 minutes. I cooked mine for 2 1/2 hours, and they were fantastic!
