Pork spare ribs in honey-mustard sauce

When I first tried meat in honey mustard sauce (it was a gorgeous baked duck cooked by my grandma) I understood that my life wasn't full enough without this sauce. And then a period of experiments begun, I'm trying this beautiful sauce with different kinds of meat in different combinations and for various occasions. This time I'll tell you how to make fabulous pork spare ribs in honey mustard sauce.


 - 10 pork spare ribs (washed, dried, cut into separate pieces)
 - 1 tablespoon honey
 - 2 tablespoons mustard (hot or mild - whatever you like better)
 - 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
 - 1 teaspoon basil (either fresh or dry)
 - 1 tablespoon soy sauce
 - salt, pepper


1. Salt and pepper the ribs.
2. Mix honey and mustard in a bowl until smooth. This mixture smells gorgeous, isn't it?
3. Add chopped garlic.
4. Add basil, pepper.
5. Add soy sauce. Mix well. The smell is even better now.
6. Cover each spare rib piece in the prepared mixture and leave it in a cool place for about an hour. Actually you can start frying them without waiting, but the taste will be richer and deeper if you'll give the ribs some time to soak the marinade.
7. Put some olive oil into the frying pan and add the ribs. Poor the rest of the sauce, if there is any, in the pan as well.
8. Cook for about 10-15 minutes on the low heat. Turn the ribs to the other side after they'll get browned from first one.
Cook 10-15 minutes more. Put the lid on when the ribs will become brown from both sides and cook about 10-15 minutes more. At the end you'll get beautiful brown ribs in caramelized honey mustard sauce.
9. Serve with vegetables. Bon appetit!
