Oven Baked Asian Spareribs

READY IN: 2hrs
Recipe by Expat in Holland

This is a great and easy oven baked rib recipe. I first used a recipe from Bon Appetit magazine and changed or added ingredients over the years. I love the Asian inspired marinade. They seem to please even the most eclectic taste. It is best to marinade the ribs overnight. If not, no less than 4 hours. This either can be served as the main meat dish or as an appetizer.

Wow...wow and wow! These rocked....even with all the changed I did to them!!! I had to re-worked the cooking instructions just a bit. I cooked my ribs at 300 for 1 hour (without the sauce on). I cut the sauce ingredients in half then added it to the ribs. I increased the temperature to 350 and further cooked them for 40 minutes...spooning the sauce over the ribs every 10 minutes. By the time they were served the meat was falling of the bone! They have to sit for 10 -15 minutes because they retained the heat for a long time! I might have cooked them a bit too long as the sauce was almost to the point of getting sticky hard. Next time, I will slow cook them for 1-1/2 hours, then add the sauce and cook it for 1/2 hour or until the sauce coats the ribs. I am not much of a ketchup fan (in fact, I hate the stuff!!) but these were well loved by all and the ketchup was masked enough for me to thoroughly enjoy!!! I would come back to this one in a flash!!! Wonderful contribution!
