Recipe by Chilicat

Ribs are boiled with garlic and ginger, then marinated in a Chinese-style barbecue sauce. This is from "A Hundred Years of Island Cooking", an old cookbook from the Hawaiian Electric Company. Prep time doesn't include marinating overnight.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut spareribs into 1 1/2-inch pieces. In a large sauce pot, combine spareribs, garlic, ginger and salt. Add water to cover spareribs; bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until spareribs are tender. Drain.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients and marinate spareribs in sauce overnight in the refrigerator.
  3. Place spareribs on rack of broiler pan and broil 3 inches from heat for 7 to 10 minutes, basting with remaining sauce. Turn and broil for 5 to 7 more minutes.
