Savory Country-Style Spareribs

Recipe by Alskann
READY IN: 1hr 15mins




  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • Place spare ribs in a large bowl or gallon size zip-lock bag.
  • Add olive oil and zesty Italian dressing packets.
  • Mix well. Refrigerate and marinade for at least 1 hour. (You can leave it in the marinade over night if you want).
  • Microwave on high for 10-15 minutes, or until ribs are brown, but not cooked through. I microwave them in the bag but you can put them in a microwave safe dish if you prefer. (I use a freezer bag which is thicker and holds up to the heat. I open the seal to vent and place it in a bowl or on a plate - just in case - but have never had a problem).
  • While ribs are in microwave, combine the remaining ingredients in a medium saucepan and cook over medium heat until well dissolved and heated through.
  • Remove ribs from bag and place in a deep 9 x 13 pan that has been prepared with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Pour sauce over ribs, covering evenly.
  • Bake for 1 hour, until ribs are cooked through.
  • Baste occasionally, if desired.
  • NOTE:***These can also be cooked on the grill with delicious results, just baste them frequently and watch them carefully so they do not burn.
