Honey Garlic Spareribs (1960)

Recipe by foodtvfan

This recipe for honey garlic ribs was in an old recipe box I bought at a garage sale around 1960. It is very easy to make with bottled VH garlic sauce.

45 years later and still a great easy recipe! Was looking for something different now that BBQ season is over. Thanks for sharing!
