In this recipe we also use cognac. Keep in mind that it can be substituted with a combination of honey and cinnamon or lemon/ orange juice.


  • 2 shallots
  • 100 ml cognac
  • 800 g (1,7 lb) pork spare ribs
  • soy sauce – to taste
  • rosemary – to taste
  • salt – to taste


Rinse meat, dry it and cut into stripes. Now we will make a marinade for the meat. Combine soy sauce, cognac, salt and rosemary in a bowl.

Peel shallots and cut them finely. Place the onion and pork in the bowl with the prepared marinade. Set aside the meat for an hour.

Grease a roasting tin with oil and place the ribs there. Pour the marinade above. Cover the everything with foil or a lid. Cook the meat in a preheated oven. Turn the pork halfway through the cooking. At the end of baking the marinade should evaporate.

Transfer the hot pork to a plate and serve with spring onions and cherry tomatoes.

Enjoy your meal!
