Sticky orange ribs

Recipe from Make five / Maak vyf
Serves 4 – 6

There’s not much to say about this recipe, except that you must make it! It’s absolutely delicious.


2 cloves garlic, crushed

60 ml (¼ cup) grated fresh ginger

200 ml orange juice

7,5 ml (½ tbsp) finely grated orange rind

125 ml (½ cup) tomato sauce

60 ml (¼ cup) soy sauce

30 ml (2 tbsp) apple vinegar

30 ml (2 tbsp) Chinese five-spice

60 ml (¼ cup) honey

1,5 kg pork ribs


1. Place all the ingredients, except the meat, in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat and simmer without a lid for 10 minutes.

2. Brush two-thirds of the sauce over the ribs and allow to stand for at least 15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 180 °C.

3. Place the ribs in a single layer on a large baking tray or in a shallow oven dish and roast for 30 minutes. Turn them over and brush with the remaining sauce. Bake for another 15 minutes or until cooked, but still juicy. The meat doesn’t need any extra salt, as the soy sauce is already salty and the other ingredients add lots of flavour.

4. Serve hot with lemon wedges and veggies of your choice.


1. This sauce also works well with chicken portions. Try it on chicken wings for a delicious snack, but only bake for 30 minutes.
