To make this kombucha spare ribs meal you will need pork spare ribs, soy sauce, kombucha, honey, paprika, cumin, and garlic.

You can substitute some of these if needed. Try using baby back ribs, beef ribs, chuck roast, pork loin, pork chops, chicken thigh, turkey breast, mirin sauce, teriyaki sauce, brown sugar, maple syrup, curry, allspice, cinnamon, and garlic powder.

When I am ready to prepare my meal, I make the marinade first. This allows me to gauge how much of each ingredient I need, and taste for flavor. Keep in mind that ribs are going to be what you season them with, so this marinade is essential. Mix the soy sauce, kombucha, honey, paprika, cumin, and garlic in a bowl.

I suggest you then place the ribs in the liquid, allowing them to marinate for at least two hours. However, if I have the time, I will make this marinade early and leave the ribs in the fridge overnight. The minimum amount should be two hours, though, or your ribs will not absorb as much liquid as they should.

You should then cook the ribs in the oven for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, but the time might vary depending on the thickness of your meat. The end product should be tender and golden brown ribs with a tasty umami and aromatic flavor.

Serve your kombucha spare ribs warm with white rice or rice noodles.
