Sam's Honey Garlic Spareribs

Print Friendly and PDF
I got this recipe from the Sam, the Cooking Guy's "Just a Bunch of Recipes" Cookbook, which my son, Stephen, gave me for Mother's Day. I love this cookbook. Sam Zien is a regular guy with a great sense of humor, who loves to cook. He is a "no frills" chef. His recipes are uncomplicated, simple, easy to follow using every day ingredients and focusing on great flavor. He has a cooking show on the Discovery Health Channel (8 Emmys) and a website: If you can't get the Discovery Health Channel, he has videos on his website that are very entertaining to watch. There, that's my plug for him. This recipe closely resembles Corinne's teriyaki sauce, and your house smells unbelievable as it bakes. I used baby back ribs, and they were so tender, the meat was falling off the bone.

4-5 lbs. pork spareribs, cut up
2 T garlic powder
3/4 cup soy sauce
3/4 cup honey
2 T cider vinegar
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
4 green onions, white and green parts only, thinly sliced
1 tsp sesame seeds

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut the ribs into individual pieces and season with garlic powder. Wrap tightly with foil and place in a baking dish. Bake 1 hour. Meanwhile, make the sauce in a sauce pan, combining soy sauce, honey, cider vinegar, garlic and black pepper over medium-low heat for about 5 min. After 1 hour of roasting, remove the ribs from the oven, unwrap the foil at one end, and drain the liquid. Be careful, as it is very hot. Pour the sauce over the ribs making sure they are well-coated. Return to the oven, and bake uncovered for another hour, basting every 10 min. The sauce will burn if left unattended, so watch it carefully the last 20 min. Place the ribs on a serving platter and top with green onions and sesame seeds.
