20 - 25 ribs
Large piece of ginger (peeled and diced)
6 - 7 cloves of garlic (peeled and diced)
3 tablespoons hoi sin sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons yellow bean sauce
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons soy sauce


1. In a dish combine the ribs with all the ingredients and mix thoroughly. Leave the ribs to marinate for 30 minutes in the fridge.

2. Transfer the ribs to a well-oiled baking tray, spreading them out evenly.

3. Preheat the oven (fan-assisted) to 160C and bake for 20 minutes.

4. After 20 minutes remove the ribs and stir. Increase the temperature to 180C and bake for a further 20-25 minutes.

5. Remove the cooked ribs from the tray and set aside. To create the barbecue sauce place the baking tray over a low to medium fire and add 2-3 cups of water, stirring constantly to blend in the flavours.

6. Strain the sauce through a sieve into a sauce pan and add 1-2 tablespoons of cornflour to thicken.

7. Serve the ribs with the sauce and enjoy!
