Step 1 In a large baking dish, rub the ribs with the sugar, salt, black pepper and rice wine. Pour over the spare rib sauce and rub it onto the ribs. Cover and place the ribs in the refrigerator to marinate, at least 4 hours but preferably overnight.
Step 2 Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the ribs in a large roasting pan, pouring over any extra liquid. Bake the ribs for 30 minutes.
Step 3Remove the pan from the oven and brush the honey onto the ribs. Place the pan back in the oven and continue to bake for another 30 minutes, or until the ribs are done. Place under the broiler for 2 to 3 minutes to crisp the outer layer of the ribs, if desired, before serving.
