3 Preheat oven to 180C.

4 Place the ribs on a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper.

5 To make the marinade, combine the kecap manis, honey, ginger, chilli and five-spice and brush generously over both sides of the ribs.

6 Roast for 15 minutes each side or until the ribs are sticky and golden.

7 Serve with steamed Asian greens.
