Units Scale

Sweet Sticky Sauce

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup honey

  3. Cover ribs with baking paper then cover and seal it with aluminium foil.
  4. Place the ribs meat side up in a baking tray then bake in a 150C preheated oven for 2 1/2 hours.

  1. I love them, but don’t eat them because of the sugary bbq sauce. It’s a torment for me.

  2. Hannah says:

    That rub and sauce would be pure gold on any protein!

  3. These are on the menu for Sunday night! They are so different from the ribs that I make (which I plan to post sometime in the next couple of months). The sticky sauce sounds just perfect. I’ll let you know how they come out!
