Sticky BBQ Ribs with Honey and 5-Spice Glaze


Recipe by Brad Ball


For the rib marinade:

  • 1.5kg pork cocktail ribs (Short ribs cut individually down each bone)
  • 100ml rice wine vinegar
  • 100ml soy sauce
  • 100ml hoisin sauce
  • Red chillies, sliced. Depends how hot you like it.
  • Thumb size fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
  • 100ml honey
  • 5 star anise
  • 30ml. sesame oil
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped


For the honey glaze:

  • 150ml honey
  • 1 Tbs Chinese five-spice


To garnish:

  • Spring onions, sliced
  • 2 red chillies, sliced
  • Fresh coriander


  1. Mix all the ingredients for the marinade together and place in a large zip lock bag
  2. Marinade the ribs overnight in the fridge for best results, but a few hours will do.
  3. Place ribs and marinade in an oven tray and cover with foil
  4. Roast in a preheated oven at 190°C for an hour.
  5. Uncover the ribs after an hour toss the ribs in the pan juices.
  6. Now season the ribs with a little five spice and drizzle with the honey to glaze.
  7. Return to oven and roast for another half an hour.
  8. Do keep an eye on them as you don't want them to burn and each oven varies slightly as well.
  9. Remove from the oven and place the ribs on a platter
  10. Sprinkle with some sliced fresh spring onions, sliced chillies and fresh coriander
