Sticky Ribs
Serves: 6 prep time cook time

Messy to eat but so worth it! These sticky ribs are great on the barbecue. Simmering them in the marinade first and finishing them on the barbecue, or in a hot oven, will ensure tender, flavoursome ribs.


  • 1.5 kg pork or beef spare ribs
  • Marinade
  • ½ cup HP Sauce
  • 1 ½ cup Golden Circle Pineapple Juice
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 1 tsp minced ginger
  • 1 tsp crushed garlic
Made with


1. Cut the pork spare ribs into 2-3 pieces and set aside.

2. To make the marinade combine HP Sauce, Golden Circle Pineapple Juice , soy sauce, ginger and garlic.

3. Place the ribs in a large saucepan and pour marinade over them. Cover. Bring to the boil then reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Remove the ribs and set aside.

4. Continue to simmer the marinade until reduced and thickened.

5. Barbecue the cooked ribs over medium heat for 10-15 minutes, brushing with the reduced marinade, until sticky and golden. Alternatively, cook in a single layer on an oven tray lined with baking paper at 200°C for 15-20 minutes.


Use beef spare ribs in place of pork if preferred.

Works great on Pork strips. Also You can substitute the HP Sauce for BBQ or Tomato for a cheaper alternative.

My son and i had these ribs last night. Followed the recipe and they were fantastic. 2.5 Kg of ribs gone.

Great recipe, made it 3 times now.
I found that cooking the ribs covered wasn't leaving the ribs sticky, so cook the ribs uncovered so the marinade reduces further.
