  • 800 g ribs
  • black pepper
  • 1 tbsp. toasted white sesame seeds for garnishing
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1 tsp. cumin powder + 1 tsp. Chinese five spice powder as a dry dip mix optional
  • 2 tbsp. hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbsp. light soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp. oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp. Chinese cooking wine or rose wine
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1/4 tsp. Chinese five spice powder
  • 1 thumb ginger sliced
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1/2 tbsp. previous marinating sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp. hot water
  1. Pre-soak the ribs with clean water for 30 minutes. During the process, the clean water turns slightly pink or red. Change the water once after the first 10 minutes. Then drain completely.
  2. Whisk all of the marinating sauce in a bowl. Pour the marinating sauce to the ribs. Set aside for at least 4 hours or overnight in fridge.
  3. Get a lined baking sheet, place only the ribs in. Wrap the ribs with foil paper. Pre-heat oven to 180 degree C.
  4. Place the baking sheet in the middle rack and roast for 40 minutes (depending how soft you want the ribs to be). Take the upper foil off and then brush the honey water. Rise the oven temperature to 200 degree C. Continue roasting for around 10 minutes until well colored.
