Dry Garlic Spareribs

"Posting this for ZWT 2006 Asian region. This is a classic Chinese treatment for Spareribs which can be doubled easily and is so delicious. To purists, this is NOT American style BBQ ribs so don't gasp at the boiling ok? Hehehe. I like to add some red pepper flakes and a little Ginger to the sauce to add a bit of heat."

  • Remove the spareribs from the pot.
  • If you like, set aside the pork broth to use in another recipe; clean out the pot.

    I tried this recipe and the ribs are to die for! They are moist and tasty. I cut out some calories by using Splenda Brown Sugar Blend instead of the full brown sugar and it still tastes awesome. Everyone that I've ever made these for loooves them. Its so simple and there are only a few ingredients. Try this tonight! You will NOT be disappointed!!

    These ribs were as good as the ones in our local take out shop. The taste is awsome and is so easy to make. My family still thinks I bought them. I also used a teaspoon of ginger powder and a teaspoon of red pepper flakes. This is a keeper!!!!! rick

    Loved these ribs!! I actually used beef ribs and that worked really well. The sauce was really tasty. I did add the red pepper flakes and ginger as recommended. The sauce was sweet but not overly so. They were sure enjoyed by DH. I think he ate 2 lbs of ribs himself.

No, I'm scared of fire and I don't speak French... though I DO love French fries, does that count? <br /> How 'bout the one where I am a Samurai...no, let's not. I always crave Sushi and tend to start brandishing butter knives at people when I think about that one. <br /> Fineeee...sighhhh, I'll get to the boring realities of this lifetime. <br /><br /><br /> I'm a mom of six kids ranging from 25 down to 2 and a half years old as well as five adorable grandchildren and 4 step children. I live in a small city in Kentucky though I am originally from the South Side of Chicago. I live with some of my kids, three psychotic cats and my wonderful husband Russell whom I met online and immediately fell madly in love with. He is also a displaced Chicago native. <br /><br />Using Zaars question about what would I do with a month off, I'd have to say sleep ...nonstop...just feed me chocolate intravenously and wake me when the month was over. My pet peeves are people with a lack of manners and old fashioned common courtesy, people who have no idea what the turn signal is for in their car &amp; as I have a disabled son, those who stereotype the disabled. <br /> I am a freelance writer and researcher by trade and sometimes do teen online counseling on the side...I know, weird combo but I'm a fairly weird person.&nbsp; <br /> </span></strong></p> <p><strong><span style=color: #800080;>For fun, I am an avid game player with current addictions to Gardens of Time in Facebook and any decent (I.E. good plot line and not too easy) hidden object game. <br /> I'm also a music fanatic who spends way more time than is healthy looking for new music.&nbsp; I feel blessed also to have met some awesome people here too.
