Cook Time:5 Hours

Nutritional Information

Sweet and spicy spareribs are great anytime of year.


  • 32 pork spareribs
  • Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 3/8 cups soy sauce
  • 6 green Thai chilies
  • 2 2-inch piece of ginger
  • 1/4 cup peanut oil
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 4 star anise
  • 2 cinnamon
  • 2 onion
  • 1 cup canned pineapple juice


  • 1. Place ribs in a large plastic bag and set aside. In a bowl, combine lime zest and juice, soy sauce, chilies, ginger, oil and 2 tablespoons molasses. Add star anise, cinnamon, onion and pineapple juice, and stir to mix well. Add contents of bowl to bag, seal bag well, and refrigerate overnight.
  • 2. Heat Egg to 400 degrees. Remove ribs from refrigerator, and pour contents of bag, including marinade, into a roasting pan. Allow ribs to come to room temperature. Cover pan tightly with foil, place in Egg, and bake for 1 hour, turning ribs once halfway through cooking. Remove pan from oven (leave oven on), discard foil, and carefully spoon only the liquid from pan into a saucepan. Return pan to oven, and continue to bake ribs uncovered.
  • 3. Add remaining 2 tablespoons molasses to saucepan, and place over medium heat. Cook until mixture is foamy and syrupy, about 10 minutes.
  • 4. Remove ribs from Egg, and pour sauce over them, turning ribs until they are well coated. Transfer to a large platter, and serve.
