I'm rating this without stars for the moment because DH 's wee dram before bed extended the bottle of Tullimore Dew that I thought I had hidden away for recipes (er wrong, obviously not hidden nearly well enough!) and I only had bearly 1/3 Cup left for this recipe. The ribs cooked up wonderfully but I'm sure that the taste would have been even better with the other 2/3rds of the whisky in, so it's on the shopping list and I will review this better once I have made it again.

  • Sauce

  • 13 cup honey

  1. Spareribs:.
  2. Put ribs in a large pot or Dutch oven and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to simmer. Cook until fork-tender, about 1 hour, skimming water occasionally to remove foam. Transfer to a large baking pan. Preheat oven to 350°.
  3. Sauce:.

Stir in the demi-glace or concentrated chicken broth.
  5. Baking:.
  6. Pour half the sauce over the ribs and bake, turning once, until the ribs begin to brown, 30 to 40 minutes. Serve 4 or more ribs per person with remaining sauce. Serves 4 to 6.
