  • For the Fall-Off-The-Bone Ribs:
    • 4 pounds pork spareribs
  • For the Sweet and Sticky Glaze:
    • ½ cup honey
    • ¼ cup soy sauce
    • ¼ cup distilled white vinegar
    • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon garlic salt


  1. Preheat for Perfection: Get your oven ready by preheating it to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius).
  2. Prep the Ribs: Separate the pork spareribs into individual pieces for easier handling and even cooking.
  3. Creating the Flavorful Glaze: In a large bowl, whisk together the honey, soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, and minced garlic. Stir until the honey and brown sugar are completely dissolved. Add the baking soda to the mixture, which will cause it to foam – this is a normal reaction.
  4. Coating the Ribs: Transfer the pork ribs to the bowl with the glaze and toss them to ensure they are evenly coated with the flavorful mixture.
  5. Setting the Stage for Baking: Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil for easy cleanup. Arrange the ribs on the prepared baking sheet, placing them meat-side up. Pour any remaining glaze from the bowl over the ribs. Sprinkle the ribs with garlic salt for an extra layer of savory goodness.
  6. Baking to Perfection: Place the baking sheet with the ribs in the preheated oven. Bake for 1 hour, turning the ribs every 20 minutes. This ensures even cooking and allows the glaze to caramelize beautifully.
  7. Time to Savor: Once the baking time is complete, remove the ribs from the oven and let them rest for a few minutes before serving. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, resulting in even more tender and flavorful ribs.
  8. Serve and Enjoy!: Serve your Honey-Glazed Ribs hot, drizzled with any remaining glaze from the pan. They are also delicious served at room temperature, making them a perfect finger food for parties. Enjoy the sweet and savory flavor combination in every bite!


  • For an extra crispy glaze, you can broil the ribs for a few minutes at the end of the baking time. Keep a close eye on them under the broiler to prevent burning.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat gently in the oven or microwave until warmed through.
