BBQ spare ribs

Here’s a classic barbecue with a twist. This version uses a barbecue sauce that has a distinct Asian flavor, featuring soy sauce, rice vinegar, and garlic.


  • 2 pounds pork spare ribs
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons hoisen sauce
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoons sake
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon of freshly ground white pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chicken stock
  • freshly ground black pepper and salt to taste


Put the spare ribs in a large casserole dish in one layer.

Using a large bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients. Pour this mixture over the spare ribs being sure to completely coat the meat. Let this marinate overnight, baste occasionally unless the meat is completely covered.

Throw the ribs on the grill and let them cook to your satisfaction. Turn them several times during the process and baste them with the marinade sauce a few times.
