The Heavens Declare

I thought I am so over Bill Granger but no I am not. He is too good to be forgotten. Here is another one for you, Sticky Five Spice Pork Ribs.
This was shared by Yen and Amy too in Cook for A Star Nov/Dec.

These ribs were seasoned three days ago meant as dinner for three but never make it on the dining table. Now, I am roasting it as I am writing this post. The house is filled with a wonderful roasting aroma and I can't wait for it to be done. This is going to be a late lunch, not proper lunch per se. Just ribs and no sides. 

The ribs are done, they look good with nice colour and charred  bits, Ok, maybe slightly burnt colour, possibly from longer seasoning? Oh, they fall off the bone too! I kicked myself for not cooking some rice. These ribs are Asian flavoured, nice to go with rice.
I had 3 of these ribs above, kept the rest for dinner. I would rate this as good, consider the little effort done . Another keeper for tray bakes, Thumbs Up!

Sticky Five Spice Pork Ribs
Bill Granger

2 kg rack of pork ribs(1.2kg)
4 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tablspoons freshly grated root ginger
125ml soy sauce
125mlhoisin sauce
60ml honey
1 tsp five spice powde
2 tablespoons mild-flavoured oil, such as sunflower oil (didn't use)


  • Put the pork ribs in a baking dish then place all the rest of the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until smooth, or simply stir together in a bowl to combine.(stir)
  • Pour all but a few tablespoons of this marinade over the ribs and rub well in then turn ribs meat-side down ready cooking. Put ribs and marinade in a bag and refrigerate in fridge.
  • Preheat the oven to 200C, and bake the pork ribs for 40 minutes, then turn them over. 
  • Brush with the reserved marinade before increasing the oven setting to 220C and cook for a further 10 minutes, or place on the bbq for the final 10 minutes to finish.

I had an enjoyable holiday in China last week. Love the rustic villages, stunning mountains, beautiful valleys, magnificent gorges and, last but not least, skilful traditional folk arts.
