  • 3 lbs pork baby back ribs 1 rack


  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 2 tbs dark brown sugar
  • 3 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 1/4 cup dry sherry
  • 1/2 tsp dark sesame oil
  • Pinch of ground anise optional

Honey Glaze:

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 clove garlic finely minced
  • 1 tsp soy sauce


  • Mix all marinade ingredients in a small bowl. Prep ribs by removing the silver skin covering the bone side. Place ribs in a large zipper freezer bag and pour the marinade over the ribs. Seal the bag then turn it a few times to distribute marinade. Marinate overnight in the refrigerator.
  • OVEN METHOD (see post for alternate cooking methods): Preheat oven to 350F/180C. Line a large baking sheet with non-stick foil or parchment paper. Remove ribs from the marinade and place unprepared pan bone side down. Roast for 60-90 minutes or until there is no pink around the meat by the bone.
  • Mix the glaze ingredients and brush over ribs. Place the ribs under a hot broiler or over direct heat on an outside grill heated to high heat. Cook just until glaze


Regular pork spare ribs may be substituted as well as beef ribs.
