Not sure where I got this recipe from but they are the best,fall of the bone, melt in your mouth ribs I have ever tasted. Great in the winter when a barbecue isn't so readily available.


  1. Brown spareribs well.
  2. Pour off excess fat.
  3. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over ribs.
  4. Bake covered at 350° for approximately 2 hours, turning 2 or 3 times.
  5. Remove cover.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes longer.
  7. Enjoy.

Great ribs, Sandy! I made these today and the only thing I changed was to add a couple of cloves of garlic to the sauce (we love garlic)! The end result was juicy, tender spare ribs which we had with baked potatoes and broccoli! I use a similar sauce to make my chicken barbeques, but never thought of using it with spare ribs! Great dish! I'll certainly be making it again!

Thanks for a recipe that does not require boiling the ribs (sure smell up a house doing that). My husband is the sparerib lover and this makes him happy. Sometimes I substitute apple cider vinegar for white with excellent results.

Very nice recipe Tigrrr. :) The meat was 'fall off the bone' tender, and not overly sweet like some I've tired. The meat was done in about 1-1/2 hours. I used back ribs, so I don't know if that makes a difference or not. In any case, they were yummy. Honoured to make this as a "Thank You" for voting for Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia in the 2010 Kraft Hockeyville Competition.
