Rating: 4.4 stars based on 1123 reviews


  • spareribs ( 1 rack)
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 3 tablespoons chili sauce
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 3 tablespoons dry sherry
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh gingerFor the spiced water
  • Garlic salt
  • Black pepper
  • Thyme
  • Rosemary
  • Oregano


  • First before you do anything get you a really big pot and fill it up with water. I use my big soup stockpot but whatever big pot you have that'll fit the ribs is fine. Heat on burner on medium heat.
  • Next put a bunch of spices and herbs in there, I use garlic salt, ground pepper, thyme, rosemary, and oregano, but whatever u like is fine, this is your beef stock.
  • Put ribs in spiced up water and let simmer for about 30-45 minutes, until meat is grey and starting to pull away from the edges of the bones.
  • Take ribs out of pot, save liquid for recipes that call for beef stock. Put ribs in roasting dish, don't forget to grease it!
  • Mix all ingredients listed above in a bowl. Taste and if not to your liking add a little bit of whatever you think will help it out. I usually end up putting in more honey and hoisin.
  • Now brush some of sauce on both sides of ribs and let sit on and absorb for about 20-30 minute.
  • Heat oven to Gas Mark 4.
  • Brush more sauce on both sides of ribs.
  • Bake for 15 minutes and brush more sauce on.
  • Bake 15 more minute.
  • Sauce on ribs should be brown and crispy looking.
  • Serve with sauce if desired and if enough leftover.
