Wednesday's Chow - Barbecued Spareribs

Summer's still here, and so is grilling season...though you can cook these ribs in the oven, too. Great for a family get-together!

Barbecued Spareribs


4 lbs baby back spare ribs
(Fresh pork ribs)
1 medium onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper


½ cup vinegar
½ cup light brown sugar
½ cup light brown sugar
½ cup ketchup
½ cup chili sauce
1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil
½ teaspoon dry mustard
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
¼ cup honey (optional)

In large Dutch oven, place ribs, onion, garlic, salt and pepper in three quarts water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer one hour, uncovered, until tender. Drain off water.

Meanwhile, in medium saucepan combine all ingredients for the sauce. Add honey if you want a sweeter sauce. Simmer uncovered for one hour.

Place ribs on rack in broiler pan. Brush with sauce and marinate for one hour. Broil, basting frequently with sauce, 10 minutes on each side or cook on the grill, basting often.
