Honey Pork Spare Ribs - Honey Recipes By Manawa Honey NZ, Ruatahuna, Te Urewera, New Zealand

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp Manawa Rewarewa Honey
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup of olive oil
  • Juice of a lemon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp ground pepper
  • 4 cloves of garlic crushed
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp oregano
  • 1 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 4 tbsp bbq sauce of choice
  • 1.5kg rack of pork ribs

Directions

Preheat oven to 120C degrees.

Mix all of the glaze ingredients, except the BBQ sauce, together with the Rewarewa Honey in a large bowl. Whisk well.

Add the pork ribs and massage the glaze all over the pork ribs thoroughly.

Place ribs meat-side down on aluminium foil. Prick back of rib rack several times with a knife.

Generously apply coating of glaze to all sides of rib rack.

With rib rack meat-side down, fold foil around it to create a tight seal. Transfer to large roasting pan.

Bake in preheated oven until tender and cooked through, about 2 hours. Remove and cool 15 minutes.

Brush barbeque sauce on all sides of rack.

Place rack meat-side up and return to oven, leaving foil open. Bake for 10 minutes, remove from oven, and brush another layer of barbeque sauce on meat-side only. Repeat baking and brushing with sauce 3-4 more times, for a total of 50 minutes baking time.

Cut rack into individual rib segments and serve with more barbeque sauce.

Notes

We definitely prefer Rewarewa Honey with this spicy dish, as its taste enriches but does not overpower the other glaze ingredients. You can use Manuka Honey if you have it and prefer the taste of this honey in your cooking.
