Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Usually when I make up my own marinade I don’t measure or write down ingredients but I had a feeling that this would be a good one and it was. I will definitely be making it again, especially for a honey garlic rib lover.
Serves: 1 full rack of ribs
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ cup ponzu sauce
  • 2 tablespoons black bean sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 1 inch ginger, peeled and grated
  • Pinch garlic pepper
  • Pinch Chinese 5 spice
  • 1 rack pork side ribs
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, ponzu sauce, black bean sauce, oyster sauce, garlic, ginger, garlic pepper, and 5 spice.
  2. Put the ribs in a baking dish or high-sided baking sheet and pour the marinade over top. Turn to coat the ribs. Refrigerate and let marinate for at least 3 hours or preferably overnight.
  3. Remove the ribs from the marinade and reserve the liquid.
  4. Put the leftover marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a boil for at least 5 minutes.
  5. Heat your grill to low and cook the ribs low and slow, basting periodically with the marinade, particularly at the end of the cooking time. I let them cook for 3 to 4 hours.
