Method

  1. Mix the ketchup, honey, Chinese five-spice powder, ginger and garlic together in a shallow dish. Roll the ribs in the mixture to coat thoroughly, cover and marinate for at least 2 hrs.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200°C (390°F, gas mark 6). Place a wire rack over a roasting tin holding a little water. This will tenderise the meat and prevent the marinade burning on the tin. Lift the ribs from the marinade (reserve this for basting) and place on the wire rack.
  3. Roast for 10 mins, then brush with some of the reserved marinade.
  4. Cook for a further 10 mins, then turn the ribs over and baste them again.
  5. Cook for a final 10 mins until the ribs are sticky and slightly caremelised. Serve immediately.
