About This Recipe 

These spareribs are grilled, but you can also cook them indoors. To cook indoors, preheat the oven to 375°F. Bake the ribs, meat side up and covered with the marinade, on a foil-lined baking sheet for 1 hour, turning every 20 minutes.


4 lb. pork spareribs, cut into individual pieces
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup distilled white vinegar
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. baking soda


1. In large bowl, combine honey, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, and brown sugar. Stir until honey and sugar are completely dissolved, then stir in baking soda. Mixture will begin to foam. Transfer ribs to bowl, and turn to coat.

2. Preheat a grill to low to medium. Lightly brush grates with oil. Remove ribs from marinade and grill ribs, turning every 20 minutes and basting with remaining marinade, until golden brown.
