Sticky Pork Spare Ribs

This is a very popular and typical Chinese delicacy and surprisingly, a simple recipe to cook.


  • 1/2 cup or 125ml hoi sin sauce
  • 1/2 cup or 90g brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup or 125ml oyster sauce
  • 8 cloves garlic (crushed)
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated ginger
  • 1 cup or 250ml water
  • 2 kg Pork spare ribs (between 10-16 pieces)

Serving Suggestions

You can eat the ribs by itself, or serve with a bowl of rice/fried rice. I personally like to shred the meat into a a bowl of noodles or fried with vermicelli.


  1. Preheat over to 180C (355F)
  2. Mix the hoi sin sauce, oyster sauce, garlic, sugar, ginger and water in a bowl
  3. Place the pork spare ribs onto a flat tray and cover with hoi sin mixture
  4. Cover with tin foil and leave in fridge or cool place for 30 minutes
  5. Then cook for 1 hour in oven
  6. Remove tin foil and cook for another 25 minutes
  7. Increase the heat to 200C (390F) and cook for another 20 minutes
  8. You can eat straight from the oven or set aside to cool

Have fun!
