These succulent pork ribs are perfect for family parties and they are a cinch to make. They have a sweet, savoury and rich flavour - serve with some noodles or some rice, or even a big mixed stir fry.


  • 12 meaty pork ribs
  • 100ml hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbsp. dark soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp. runny honey
  • 1 tbsp. white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp. five spice powder
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper

  2. Drain the ribs and leave to dry in the air for 10 minutes or so.

  3. Combine the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, honey, vinegar, five spice and black pepper in a bowl. Brush the pork ribs with the mixture.
