Serves 4, 5mins Preparation, 35mins Cooking

So tasty and a great alternative to a takeaway on a Friday night! This is definitely a recipe that the whole family can enjoy.


• 12 Meaty pork ribs • 100ml hoisin sauce • 2 tbsp soy sauce • 1 tbsp clear honey • 1 tbsp vinegar (you can use cider, malt or wine) • 1 tsp Chinese five-spice powder


  1. Put the ribs in a large pan and cover with water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 15 mins. Meanwhile, pour the hoisin sauce in a jug and stir in the soy sauce, honey, vinegar and five-spice.
  2. Drain the ribs very well, then brush with the glaze – if barbecuing, chill, cover and keep in the fridge for later.
  3. Heat the grill to high, if using. Grill or barbecue for 15-20 mins, turning from time to time until shiny and slightly charred in places. Serve hot.
