“This is out of my Asian cookbook...enjoy! Cooking time doesn't include marinating time...based on KateL's review I posted a photo of my 3 pounds of ribs in my lasagne pan...I also took the pan out of the oven to turn the ribs keeping the oven temperature steady...I did change the cooking time to include another 10 minutes...that's how long it took mine to get nice and caramelized...hope this helps...”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large glass bowl combine the sesame oil, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, rice wine, five spice powder, honey, sambal oelek and salt. Mix well.
  2. Add the pork spare ribs and stir until the ribs are totally coated in the marinade.
  3. Cover and refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours so they absorb the flavors of the marinade.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  5. Place the ribs and marinade into an oiled baking dish (line the baking dish with thick foil to make washing up easier) and cook for 50-60 minutes, turning and basting with pan juices every 15 minutes.
  6. If the marinade begins to burn, add a few tablespoons of warm water to the pan during cooking.
  7. Scatter the chopped green onions over the spare ribs and serve with wedges of lemon and steamed rice.
