Recipe of the Week: Keo's Honey Glazed Spareribs

A few weeks ago while Emi and I were trying out a few of Keo's recipe, I grilled up the Honey Glazed Spareribs. They were delicious and I wanted to share the recipe with all of you. The sweetness of the honey combined with the lemongrass is a great, unique flavor.

If you want to try something different, yet still simple with great flavor this recipe is for you. It's also perfect for a summer BBQ.

Honey Glazed Spareribs Recipe:

The recipe book said that this was one of their more popular dishes.

What you will need:

  • 4 pounds of baby spareribs - I purchased a few racks of these ribs at Ranch 99 (much more affordable there)
  • 4 stalks of lemongrass, chopped (again easy to find at Ranch 99 or your equivalent local, Asian market)
  • 1/2 C chopped garlic
  • 3 T coarsely chopped fresh ginger
  • 1/2 C coarsely chopped Chinese parsley roots (it looks like a white turnip)
  • 1/2 C honey
  • 1/2 C coconut milk
  • 1/4 C soy sauce
  • 1 t salt
Cut spareribs into individual ribs. In a food processor, combine lemongrass, garlic, ginger, Chinese parsley roots, honey, coconut milk, soy sauce, and salt; blend until smooth. Pour sauce over the ribs and marinate overnight in the refrigerator. Preheat oven to 350 F place ribs in an open pan and bake for 1 hour, or until cooked, depending on the thickness of the ribs. Serve with Sriracha sauce for dipping.

I BBQ'd the ribs over indirect heat instead of baking them in the oven. This gave the ribs an added smokey flavor. It took a little bit longer to cook them at about 40 minutes in total. It's important to cook over indirect heat so that you don't burn the sugar in the marinade coating the ribs.

The ribs came out tender and flavorful. If you enjoy sweet, salty, and garlicky and teriyaki flavors you will enjoy these ribs. Also the lemongrass gives this dish an added kick.

Instead of serving with Sriracha, Emi prefers a little bit of sweet chili sauce on the side. Honestly the ribs have so much flavor you don't need an additional dipping sauce.
