These spare ribs were slow roasted, after marinading in a mixture of hoisin sauce (2 tbsp), honey (1 tbsp) and hot chilli sauce (1 tbsp).
The usual supermarket pack of 500g pork spare ribs is plenty for 2 people.
Remove the ribs from the marinade (retain the remains of the marinade). Place the ribs in a roasting tin (if your tin has a trivet, place the spare ribs on it).
Cook in the oven at 180C (Gas Mark 4) for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven. Brush the remaining marinade on the ribs, turn the oven down to 120C (Gas Mark 1/2), and return the ribs to the oven to cook for another 1.5 hours (longer won’t do any harm).
Good with Thai sticky rice and steamed pak choi – or just on their own.
