The weather is definitely leaning towards BBQ season! We know that some people aren't ready yet to tend to a smoker or their BBQ so our Honey Glazed BBQ Spareribs recipe is designed for the oven and the grill. We love the crunch of these glazed ribs, the spicy and savory flavors from the crushed chilies and sage make these ribs worth having on any week night. We even used this glaze on ribs for our Instapot (cooks quicky and the meat falls off the bone), it goes great on bone in chicken and is AH-mazing drizzled on pork chops!


  • 4 lbs. - lean pork spareribs

  • water

  • salt and pepper

  • 1/2 cup - honey

  • 1/4 cup - lemon juice

  • 2 tsp. - lemon peel, grated

  • 2 tsp. - ginger root, grated

  • 1 clove - garlic, minced

  • 1 tsp. - rosemary, crushed

  • 1/2 tsp. - red chilies, crushed

  • 1/2 tsp. - ground sage


  1. Completely cover spareribs with water in a large pot or deep skillet. Bring to boil, uncovered, over medium heat. Simmer 4 minutes. Drain liquid, reserving it for stock for later use, if desired.
