Five-Spice Pork Ribs

A recipe from the Good Food collection.


Five-Spice Pork Ribs
Five-Spice Pork Ribs
1 kg (2 lb 4 oz) American-style pork ribs
shredded spring onions (scallions) (optional), to serve 
125 ml (4 fl oz/½ cup) tomato sauce (ketchup)
2 tablespoons Chinese rice wine or dry sherry
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon sweet chilli sauce
2 teaspoons five-spice powder
2 garlic cloves, crushed 


  1. Cut the pork ribs into individual ribs. Combine all the marinade ingredients in a large non-metallic bowl. Add the ribs and toss well to coat evenly. Cover and marinate for several hours, or overnight.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F/Gas 4). Line a large baking tray with foil. Remove excess marinade from the ribs, reserving the remaining marinade. Put the ribs on a rack on the baking tray. Bake for 30 minutes, or until cooked and golden brown. Brush with the reserved marinade 1–2 times during cooking. Serve hot, garnished with spring onions if desired.
