To Die for Pork Spareribs

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Karin...

You're sure to love these! So tender and succulent! I've roasted them and BBQ'ed them and they take less time to cook on the BBQ but are just as lovely oven roasted. Just make sure you have a bowl of water with some lemon slices in it on hand and plenty of serviettes!

We've used this recipe three times, twice with pork spare ribe and once used leftover marinade/sauce to baste grilled chicken breasts. Yum, Yum says it all! Thanks to Karin from Wellington, New Zealand.
