BBQ Short Pork Ribs

These ribs are unlike anything you have ever tasted before. They are extremely tangy and extremely tasty.


4 pounds of spareribs, pork


3 tbsp. of soy sauce, light
3 tbsp. of soy sauce, dark
⅓ cup of hoisin sauce
1 tbsp. of ketchup
1 tbsp. of rice vinegar
2 tsp. of brown sugar, packed
tsp. of five spices, Chinese style
2 cloves of garlic, chopped finely
cup of honey, raw
cup of water, boiling


The first thing that you will want to do is prepare your ribs by removing any membrane upon them with a sharp paring knife and then to cut each rib individually. Set the ribs aside for later use.

Next mix together your soy sauces, ketchup, vinegar, chopped up garlic, packed brown sugar and hoisin sauce until everything is evenly combined.

Using this sauce as your marinade, smother your ribs in the sauce and place into your fridge to marinate overnight.

The next day preheat your oven to 350 degrees. While your oven is heating up combine your boiling water and honey together until evenly mixed.

Then using a shallow roasting pan, add at least a ½ of an inch of water into it. Place this pan onto the lower rack of your oven. Take another shallow roasting pan and place your marinated ribs into it. Place this pan on the top rack of your oven.

Let your pork cook in your oven for at least 50 to 60 minutes. While your ribs are cooking rub them over with your water and honey mixture a few times.

After cooking remove your ribs from the oven and set them to cool slightly. Serve while still warm.
