Honey-Soy BBQ Ribs Recipe

May 31, 2019

Manuka Honey Recipes

BBQ season is officially here and what is better than a slab of ribs with the best BBQ sauce you have ever tasted? We dug deep into the recipe books to find something that would not only work with the rich taste of Manuka honey but also something that would work well with a cold beer or a glass of Sangria. Personally, I would go with the Sangria here, especially if you choose to use a bold merlot or a nice zinfandel in the recipe.

Honey-Soy BBQ Ribs Ingredients:

  • 2 slabs of St. Louis-style pork ribs
  • 1T kosher salt
  • 2t freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2c raw honey
  • 2T soy sauce
  • 2T Asian chili-garlic sauce
  • 1T fresh lime juice
  • 1T butter
  • 1t dry mustard
  • 1t ground ginger


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Rinse ribs and pat dry
  3. Remove membrane from back of ribs
  4. Sprinkle slabs with salt and pepper
  5. Wrap with aluminum foil
  6. Bake in pan for about two to two and a half hours (meet should be easy to pull off bone)
  7. While ribs are cooking, about half an hour before they are done, begin making sauce
  8. Add honey and remaining ingredients into a saucepan
  9. Combine ingredients, then bring mixture to a boil over high heat
  10. Reduce heat to low and allow to simmer until it is reduced in half (about five minutes)
  11. Remember to stir so mixture does not burn or stick to pot
  12. When sauce is reduced, transfer to bowl
  13. When ribs are ready, remove from oven and turn setting up to broil
  14. Transfer ribs, carefully, to a foil-lined baking sheet
  15. Brush down ribs with sauce
  16. Return ribs to oven for about five minutes (sauce should be brown and sticky)
  17. Remove ribs and brush them down again with sauce

Personally, I like to make an extra batch of the sauce and serve it on the side to my guests because believe me, once they taste it, they are going to be asking you for more!
