2 cloves garlic, minced
2 large pieces fresh orange peel

Fit ribs into a roasting tin and pour over the coke. Cook for 2.5 hours, turning after 1 hour.
Meanwhile make the marinade in a small saucepan. Add more soy/honey according to your taste. bring to the boil and then remove from the heat.
After 2.5 hours, take the ribs out and pour away the gravy.
