5-Ingredient Baked Pork Ribs (Video)

by · 10 comments
Here comes my favourite baked pork rib dish. You only need 5 ingredients to make it. Best of all, you don’t even need to marinate the pork ribs in advance. Simply mix all the ingredients together and pop into an oven. 

The pork ribs will become very tasty and tender after a slow-baking process without any fuss. They are best served immediately with salad or rice. Sounds good, right?

One simple secret tip on making tasty and succulent baked ribs you want to know. Cut the pork ribs separately beforehand. It’ll do the magic.

5-Ingredient Baked Pork Ribs Procedures

I used double-layer foil to wrap and enclose the pork ribs and seasonings. It saved me a lot of time from cleaning the baking tray as well.

After putting the wrapped pork ribs in the preheated oven. You can sit back and relax. When the preset time is up, remove the top layer foil, brush some juice from the parcel on the pork rib surface. Boil for about 5 minutes to finish off by browning the surface.

Yield: 2 to 3 serves

5-Ingredient Baked Pork Ribs03

  • 520 gm pork ribs
  • ¼ cup hoisin sauce
  • ¼ cup ketchup
  • 2 Tbsp Sriracha sauce
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger juice (see this post how to juice ginger)

Method :
  1. Soak pork ribs in room-temperature water for 10 minutes or so to remove any blood or impurities. Rinse well and wipe dry. Use a sharp knife to cut into chunks between bones. Season with salt.
  2. Preheat oven to120C / 250F.
  3. Place pork ribs on a baking tray lined with double-layer foils. Add hoisin sauce, ketchup, Sriracha sauce and ginger juice. Mix well. Place another foil on top. Fold and enclose all sides to form a pocket.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 2 hours.
  5. Remove the tray from the oven. Open the foil. Carefully transfer the pork ribs onto another lined baking tray. At this stage, the pork ribs are cooked and become very tender. Beware not to break the rib meat apart.
  6. Increase the oven temperature to 200C / 390F. In the meantime, evenly brush the sauce from tray on the surfaces of pork ribs. Bake for about 5 to 10 minutes, or until the surface turns golden brown. Serve immediately. Enjoy!

  • Either spareribs or baby back ribs will work for this recipe.
  • The ginger juice helps remove some smells from the pork ribs if any, and tenderizes the pork meat.


  1. Looks like a great recipe! I would want to marinate the ribs in the sauce in a plastic bag first, rather than try to lather the sauce on? Any problem with that? Thank you.

  2. wow They look terrific! That marinade would be awesome for some chicken legs too :-)

  3. Thank you for the recipe Christine. I think my daughters would like the taste of this dish but unfortunately they don't like ribs. What cut of meat do you think would be a good substitute please?

  4. Hi Esther,
    Pork loin or chicken meat would work with this recipe.

  5. Hi Christine, I tried this recipe and after baking for 2 hours at 250F the sauce did not thicken at all, it was all liquid. What did I do wrong, or what needs to change?

  6. Hi Christine, can I omit sriracha and replace with something else? I’m afraid it will be too spicy for my kids. Thanks!

  7. Hi
    Simply skip it if you don't want. It's still work.

  8. Hi
    You might just boil the sauce in a pot over stove to get the sauce thickened.

  9. can one use oyster sauce instead of hoisin? Family does not like sweet

  10. I haven't tested this recipe with oyster sauce instead.
    However, feel free to experiment to adapt to your family's taste. Let me know how you go if you do so.
