BBQ Pork Ribs (My Home Cooked Version)

Although I love eating pork ribs, especially BBQ ones, it is something that is not shared by my hubby. Frankly I do not know why! He just does not like pork all that much, in any form or other. He gives the same treatment to beef and lamb dishes as well. So most of the food I would cook or try out at home would be something that he would eat as well. However for this particular occassion I could not resist buying a small slab of pork ribs just to have my home-cooked version of BBQ ribs. I marinated it with whatever I thought would go well as a BBQ sauce (so if you are not adventurous, I seriously would discourage you from trying out this recipe) and also with whatever I already had in my kitchen.

The ribs turned out really well with charred bits at the end .. just the way I like it! It does seem quite sinful having all of it .. but heh a girl's got to give in to indulgence once in a while.

BBQ Pork Ribs (My Home Cooked Version)


1 rack baby back pork ribs

Marinate Sauce:

1 1/2 Tbsp marmalade orange jam (you can substitue with apricot jam as well)
1 1/2 Tbsp honey
1 1/2 Tbsp Hoisin sauce (or substitute with your favourite BBQ sauce)
1 1/2 Tbsp soy sauce
1/2 Tbsp of worcheshire sauce
1/2 Tbsp of chillie sauce (I used Thai sweet chillie sauce)
1/2 tsp white pepper powder
1/2 tsp five-spice powder
1/2 tsp sesame oil
Salt to taste


1) Add all ingredients in a bowl and using a whisk, stir to enable all ingredients are combined together.

2) Marinate the ribs with 2/3 of the marinate sauce for 8 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.

3) Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with heavy aluminum foil, lay the ribs on top, and tightly cover with foil. Roast for 2 hours.

4) Preheat the grill and remove the ribs from the oven and uncover. Transfer the ribs to the hot grill and grill over direct heat for 5-10 minutes or until the surface slightly charred to your liking. Brush both sides of the ribs with the remaining char siu sauce plus some oil while grilling. Serve hot.

I have honestly never cooked ribs. My husband would worship me if I made these. Maybe this would be the perfect Valentines Day meal. Thanks for the post.
