Honey Ginger Short Ribs are a zesty and sweet, fall off the bone short rib recipe, braised to perfection and served with the best fried rice ever!


  • 8 bone-in short ribs
  • 1 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 6 tablespoons grated ginger
  • 6 garlic cloves minced or pressed
  • 1 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons garlic chili sauce


  1. In a small bowl combine hoisin sauce, soy sauce, molasses, ginger, garlic, honey and garlic chili sauce. Blend using an immersion blender until smooth. In you do not have one, that is fine, your sauce will just be a little chunkier.
  2. Place short ribs into large enamel Dutch oven or other oven safe dish, cover with marinade, turning to coat. Cover and allow to marinate at room temperture for 20-30 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Add short ribs, covered, in Dutch oven to lower third of oven. Braise for 2 hours.
  4. Remove lid, turn short ribs in sauce and continue to cook for an additional 45 minutes uncovered, allowing the sauce to reduce.
  5. Remove from oven and remove short ribs to a plate. Transfer sauce to a fat separator, or ladle off fat from the top of sauce. Return fat removed sauce back to the Dutch oven, along with short ribs. Turn to coat again. Serve over Fried Rice with additional sauce.
