The Grace of Our Lord

I call these spare ribs Chinese style because there are soy sauce and hoisin sauce in the marinade. They also taste a bit like char siu. This basic marinade for ribs recipe was from a magazine(forgotten which) cut out many years ago. I have since made countless time during festive season because everyone who had it, liked it very much.  The ribs go well with potato mash or rice.
These spare ribs taste best when they're cooked till extra tender which means they'll break into soft flakes and off the bones when you bite into them. To achieve this, I steam the ribs first before basting in the marinade and grilling in the hot oven.

Chinese Style Oven Grilled Spare Ribs

Basic marinade for ribs

1 tbsp sugar
1 small piece ginger, minced
4 tbsp soy sauce
4 tbsp ketchup
1 tbsp hoisin sauce
1 tbsp honey
2 tsp worcestershire sauce
ground black pepper


  • Mix all the ingredients together. Make sure they're well mixed. 
  • Set aside until you are ready to use the marinade.

Note: This marinade keeps very well. Unused portions may be refrigerated for later use. Apart from spare ribs, they're great for chicken wings, too. For today's dish, I used 774 g of spare ribs, 5 chicken wing mid joints and 2 times the marinade. The spare ribs were first steamed at 45 minutes or till tender. Then put under hot grill and baste every 5-10 minutes, turn over and repeat.
