Barbecued Spare Ribs are a classic American barbecue meal made from pork. This version is cooked in the oven, not on a barbecue, and uses a barbecue sauce with Asian-associated flavors like soy sauce, rice vinegar, and garlic.

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. Place spare ribs in a large baking dish in one layer. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Pour over spare ribs and coat on both sides. Marinate overnight, basting occasionally.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 °F (191 °C). Place a large, shallow roasting pan on the oven bottom. Fill with 0.5 inches (1.3 cm) water. Place spare ribs on a roasting rack.
  3. Roast ribs for 45 minutes.
  4. Raise oven temperature to 450 °F (232 °C), and roast for 15 more minutes.
  5. Serve hot or cold.

Notes, tips, and variations[edit | edit source]

  • Alternatively, bake at 375 °F (191 °C) for 20 mins then lower the temp to 325 °F (163 °C) for 1 hour; this renders most of the fat and produces very tender meat.
  • To actually barbecue the ribs on a grill, get grill temperature to 225 °F (107 °C) and cook for 5-6 hours.
