  • 3 pounds pork spare ribs, cut into 1 ½-2 inch pieces
  • 1 1-inch piece ginger, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 6 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • ¾ cup plus 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 ½ cups dry sherry
  • ¼ cup superfine sugar granulated is fine
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper to taste

honey-soy glaze

  • cup braising liquid
  • ¼ cup honey


  • thinly sliced green onion
  • toasted sesame seeds


  • Rinse rib pieces under cold water and place in a large pot. Fill with water and add ginger. Place pot over high heat and boil for 30 minutes, skimming the fat from the surface as it forms.
  • Drain and rinse rib pieces in cold water for a second time, removing any excess fat, debris and ginger.
  • Place a large Dutch oven, or heavy bottom pot over medium-high heat and add oil. Add ribs and season with salt and pepper. Brown for about 3 minutes. Add remaining ingredients to the pot and stir together.
  • Bring mixture to a boil then reduce heat to medium-low. Cover.
  • Simmer mixture for 45 minutes to an hour, stirring occasionally, until meat is tender.
  • Scoop ⅔ cup of the sauce into a small pot (skimming off any excess fat) and stir in honey. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until mixture has reduced by ⅓. Remove from heat and allow to cool for about 15 minutes.
  • Brush glaze over rib pieces and serve over white or brown rice. Top with sliced green onions and sesame seeds. Serve.
