- Cut the spareribs apart into 1 or 2 rib servings. Place in a shallow glass baking dish.
- Combine the light soy sauce, Hoisin sauce, ketchup, rice wine or sherry, brown sugar and the chopped garlic. Pour over the spareribs. Cover and marinate 2 to 3 hours or overnight in the refrigerator, turning occasionally to make sure the ribs are thoroughly coated.
- Preheat oven from 325 up to 350 degrees F.
- Fill a shallow roasting pan with 1/2 inch of water and place on the middle rack of the oven. Dissolve honey in separate bowl in the boiling water. Place the pork on a rack above the water. Roast the pork for 40 minutes, or until the ribs just begin shrinking and the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F. -- Brush the spareribs several times with the honey and water mixture during roasting. Turning and brushing with the marinade every 10 minutes. Let the marinade cook on for the final 10 minutes to make a glaze. Finish under the broiler if desired. Discard any remaining marinade.
