Bunratty Castle Pork Ribs with Honey-Whiskey Sauce



Pork Ribs

  • 5 pounds pork spareribs

Honey-Whiskey Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, peeled and sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 cup Irish whiskey
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons tomato ketchup
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 4 cups homemade chicken stock or canned low-salt chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup demi-glace or concentrated chicken broth


  1. Put the ribs in a large pot or Dutch oven and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to simmer. Cook until fork tender, about 1 hour, skimming the water occasionally to remove the foam.
  2. Transfer ribs to a large baking pan. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  3. To make the sauce: In a medium saucepan over medium heat, heat the oil and cook the onion and garlic until soft, about 3 minutes. Stir in all the remaining ingredients except the demi-glace or concentrated chicken broth and bring to a boil. Cook until the sauce reduces by half, 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. Stir in the demi-glace. Pour half the sauce over the ribs and bake, turning once, until the ribs begin to brown, 30-40 minutes.
  5. Slice the meat into 4 or more ribs per person and serve with remaining sauce.

Serves 4 to 6 as a first course.
