Ingredients:  
1 1/2 - 2 lbs boneless country style pork spareribs
1/4 C honey
1/4 C hoisin sauce
1/4 C catsup
1/2 tsp curing salt (see Note)

Directions:
Cut pork into strips about 6 inches long, 1 inch thick, 1 1/2 inches wide. In a bowl, mix together the honey, hoisin sauce, catsup, and curing salt. Marinate pork in sauce for 3 hours in refrigerator. Heat oven to 400. Place meat on rack in roasting pan and cook for 20-30 min, or until the meat has cooked through. Cut diagonally into thin slices.

Note: If you omit the curing salt (also known as saltpeter or sodium nitrate), the meat will not take on its characteristic pink color and the texture will be closer to roast pork than ham, but the flavor will be much the same.
