In this recipe the pork is baked instead of roasted or broiled.
Lip-smacking honey and garlic spareribs
3 - 4 pounds Boston pork butt and/or spareribs
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon salt
3- 4 garlic cloves, crushed
1/4 cup liquid honey
Cut the pork into strips that are 3/4 inches in length, trimming off part of the fat.
Mix together well the marinade/sauce ingredients, and pour it over the pork.
Marinate the pork at room temperature for 1 - 2 hours.
Line 1 or 2 cookie sheets (as needed) with aluminum foil, and place a cooking rack on each sheet.
Place the pork on the rack and bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until done.
Brush the pork strips with honey, and then turn them over and brush the other side with honey.* If there is any extra marinade brush it on as well. Bake for another 30 minutes.
If using spareribs, leave in large flat pieces, and marinate and cook the same way as the pork.
*If the pork isn't cooking quickly enough, you can broil them for about 5 minutes before turning them over.
For a more garlicky flavor, add extra garlic when brushing the pork with honey.
If you need a substitute for honey, try using brown sugar or corn syrup.
