Sun Pork: Sweet BBQ Pork Ribs (Heat & Eat)

I came across the Sun Pork Sweet BBQ Pork “Heat and Eat” ribs when I was at a supermarket and I thought why not, I’ll give it a go. The pack claimed the ribs were slow cooked in a sweet BBQ marinade and all I had to do is heat and eat it… simples.

You get just under 700g of ribs for $9.50 and at $13.99 per kilo at the time of purchase, it seemed like pretty good value. The ribs come covered in sauce and the instructions recommend either baking the ribs for 20 minutes in the oven or throwing it on the BBQ for 10 minutes, I went for the BBQ option and fired it up.

I grilled the Sun Pork Sweet BBQ Pork Ribs for closer to 20 minutes to give it a bit more colour and heated up the excess marinade left in the bag on the stove for a bit of extra flavour.

The end result was better than I expected, the flavour of the sauce was good and it had a hint of spice that was just right. The meat was tough though and it took some effort to eat it. But being a man who enjoys devouring a whole cooked crab with just his hands and teeth, I enjoyed the challenge, though I don’t think many people would.

The serving size was just right for one person or as snack for a couple of people. I personally thought it was good for what it was, heat and eat ribs, no real effort and for under $10 I really couldn’t complain. To be honest, I’ve had worse ribs at a restaurant and paid a lot more for it.

I’d recommend buying a pack of Sun Pork Sweet BBQ Pork Ribs and keeping it in your freezer, perfect for when you get those rib cravings and you don’t have time to cook up a batch of ribs from scratch.

  1. Hi Regan,

    I can’t believe I found a rib appreciation society! ? So I’ve just tried it the other week – pat dried the ribs, saved the marinade in a bowl then threw them in the air fryer, 180°C for 10 minutes with bone side up, then turned the meat side up and poured the marinade on top and cooked for another 6 minutes…they were tender sweetness on a plate and the meat just fell off from the bone! ???

    P.S. I actually found them in Hong Kong and bought them for about AUD16. Well you’re right, I paid more in restaurants and had worse so, good on ya Sunpork!

    Cheers,
    Rachael
