Preparation Time15 mins
Cook Time35 mins


2kg pork spare ribs, cut into 5cm pieces
4 spring onions, sliced, to serve
1 tbs toasted sesame seeds & fresh coriander, to serve
steamed rice, to serve

1 tsp finely grated ginger
2 cloves garlic, finely grated
3 tbs gochujang
2 tbs tomato paste
¼ cup honey
¼ cup light soy sauce
2 tbs rice wine vinegar
1 tbs sesame oil
½ tsp salt


Whisk together all ingredients for the marinade in a large bowl. Add the pork and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.

Transfer pork in a single layer to the perforated tray in your Nexus steam oven, allowing excess marinade to drip off (reserve marinade). Steam for 30 minutes at 100°C until cooked through and tender.

Meanwhile, place reserved marinade in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thick and reduced.

Remove pork from steamer and turn on browning function to 200°C. Brush pork with extra chilli sauce and place tray on the top shelf in steamer to brown for 2-3 minutes until caramelised. Turn pork over, brush with sauce again and return to oven for a further 3 minutes until pork is caramelised.

Serve pork with extra chilli sauce and sprinkle with sliced spring onions, coriander and toasted sesame seeds. Serve with steamed rice.
