How to make sticky ribs

Your rating: None
For a quick and tasty pork dish, it's hard to beat sticky ribs. Marinate them overnight and look forward to a delicious treat that's ready in ten minutes. Here's what to do:
What you'll need: 
1.4 kg (3 lb) pork spare ribs
7 to 8cm long piece of ginger, peeled and grated
6 cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed
6 tbsp runny honey
6 tbsp light soy sauce
6 tbsp dry sherry
2 tsp hot chilli sauce
Medium-sized mixing bowl
Large saucepan
Grill (or oven)
Separate the ribs, if necessary
Mix the other ingredients in your bowl
Add the ribs to the mixture, turning them until they are fully coated. Marinate overnight in the fridge (or for at least four hours if you really can't wait!)
After marinating, grill the ribs on high power until they are well-browned; the meat should separate from the bone very easily. Put the ribs to one side, covering them to preserve heat.
Pour the grill juices into your saucepan and add the remaining marinade.
Boil the mixture until it has reduced to a nice, sticky sauce.
Brush the sauce onto the ribs and serve.
If you prefer to oven cook the ribs, they will need 35-40 minutes at 240 degrees C (Gas Mark 9)
Note that you require only 2 TEASPOONS of chilli sauce
