Baby Back Ribs (Filipino Style)


  • 2.7 Kilograms baby back ribs
  • 2 medium white onions, cut into wedges
  • 1 medium white onion, finely chopped
  • 6 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 6 whole star anise pods
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


In a large stock pot, pour in enough water to cover the ribs, add 2 wedged onions, 4 tablespoons of soy sauce, pepper and star anise.

Let it boil over medium heat and simmer over low heat. Cover pot and let it cook until meat becomes tender for about 45 mins. Mix occasionally.

To make the sauce:

In a pan, heat oil over medium heat. Sautè one chopped onion until soft. Next, add ginger, honey, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice and 2 tbsp of soy sauce. Cook for a few 2-3 minutes, and stir until well blended. Turn off heat once cooked.

You can grill the ribs over charcoal or bake it in the oven. If using the oven: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

In a prepared baking dish, transfer ribs and arrange in a single layer. Baste the ribs lavishly with the sauce mixture all over. Bake it for about 30 minutes, while basting often with pan drippings to keep it moistened and glazed.

Serve with your favorite Buttered Mix Vegetables on the side and enjoy!
