These Japanese pork ribs are another easy oven recipe! The pork ribs are super tender, sweet, savory and flavorful.

I had my homemade strawberry jam lying in my fridge, so I used it as a pork rib marinade. Jam as a marinade sounds a little peculiar but it turned out soooooo delicious!!

If you have an oven or a grill, these Japanese pork ribs are must-try recipe!

Make sure to make plenty of them, because I’m sure every family member or guests will love these finger-licking good Japanese pork ribs! This is my kid- approved recipe for a busy mom & dad!




<Yield> 2 servings

<Prep time> 2 minutes (not including marinating time)

<Cook time> 30 minutes (cook in oven)


6 pieces pork ribs (300g/10oz)


3 tablespoons strawberry jam

1½ tablespoons rice wine

1½ tablespoons Soy sauce

1 tablespoon ginger, grated

2 teaspoons Toasted sesame oil

½ teaspoon salt

2 cloves garlic, grated

<Optional toppings>

any fresh herbs


1. In a ziplock bag, put all the seasonings listed above under the "marinade" then add in the pork ribs. Massage to combine everything together. Remove the air from the ziplock bag and close it completely. Let them sit for a minimum of 2 hours or possibly overnight in the fridge.

2. Preheat an oven to 200°C = 392°F. Line up the pork ribs on a wire rack. Pop them into the oven and cook for 20 minutes. Remove them from the oven and smother the marinade all over the pork ribs to add in more flavor. Put them back into the oven and continue to roast them for another 10 minutes or until the pork becomes nice and charred.

3. Remove from the oven and serve it on a plate. Sprinkle with some toasted sesame seeds if you want to!

<Miwa’s tips>

・In step 1, make sure the ribs are nicely coated with the marinade. Removing the air from the bag will help the marinade to reach each pork rib.

・ The jam doesn't have to be strawberry. I have tried it with marmalade before and it worked pretty well! Please try it out with whatever jam you have on hand! Pretty much all kinds should work out with this pork rib recipe!

Let me know which jam you used by commenting here or on my Instagram !

・You want to char the pork ribs slightly. It will give them a nice smoky aroma!

・Each oven works differently, so feel free to adjust the roasting time! You want to have a nice charred bits on your pork ribs.

・Please double or triple the portions to make bigger batch!

<Recommended side dish>

<Storage time>

Store them in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Freeze them for 3 weeks before you roast.
