  • 1.2 kg pork ribs in four portions
  • salt and pepper

For the glaze/sauce

  • 6 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp runny honey
  • 2 tbsp Bourbon
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 200 ml orange or pineapple juice
  • 1 tbsp cider vinegar


  • Salt the ribs and place in an oven dish, cover with foil and roast at 160 C for about an hour until tender.
  • Make the glaze by putting all the ingredients in a saucepan and heating. Stir until the sugar has dissolved and simmer until the mixture has reduced by half.
  • Remove the foil and pour off any moisture. Cover the ribs in half of the glaze and return to the oven at 200 C until golden.
  • Serve with the remaining sauce.


This sauce is great with chicken or prawns too.
