How to Make Honey Garlic Ribs

  1. Remove silver-skin (optional): Flip the rack of ribs over so they are bone side up, meaty side down. Slide the tip of a paring knife under the corner of the silver skin and peel it away.
  2. The marinade: In a large ziplock bag or container, combine honey, chicken stock, apple cider vinegar, minced garlic, and dried sage.
  3. Marinate the pork: Place the ribs into the mixture and marinate for 1 hour, flipping the bag over halfway through. If ribs aren’t fully submerged, flip them over every 15 minutes to ensure even coating.
  4. Prepare to roast: Preheat the oven to 160°C (140°C fan forced) / 320°F. Line a large baking sheet or roasting tin with aluminum foil.
  5. Roast the ribs: Remove the ribs from the marinade (reserve the marinade) and place them onto the prepared tray. Sprinkle salt and pepper all over. Roast for 2 – 2 ½ hours until golden brown and tender, covering with foil if browning too quickly.
  6. Make the glaze: Pour the reserved marinade into a saucepan and boil for 5 minutes until reduced and thick.
  7. Finish roasting: Brush the glaze all over the ribs and roast for a further 8-12 minutes, uncovered, basting every 3-4 minutes. Be careful not to let them burn.
  8. Rest and serve: Rest ribs for 10 minutes under foil, then slice between the bones and serve.

Serving Suggestions

Honey Garlic Ribs are delicious on their own, but you can also serve them with your favorite side dishes such as mashed potatoes, coleslaw, or grilled vegetables. Pair them with a refreshing salad for a complete and satisfying meal.

Tips and Techniques

  • For best results, remove the silver-skin membrane from the back of the ribs to ensure tenderness.
  • Marinate the ribs for at least 1 hour to allow the flavors to penetrate the meat.
  • Keep an eye on the ribs while roasting and adjust cooking time if needed to prevent burning.
  • Baste the ribs with the glaze frequently during the final roasting to achieve a sticky and flavorful coating.


Feel free to customize the marinade by adding your favorite herbs and spices such as thyme, rosemary, or chili flakes for an extra kick of flavor.
