Barbecued Spare Ribs are a classic American barbecue meal made from pork. This version is cooked in the oven, not on a barbecue, and uses a barbecue sauce with a distinct Asian flavor, featuring soy sauce, rice vinegar, and garlic.



  1. Place spare ribs in a large baking dish in one layer. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Pour over spare ribs and coat on both sides. Marinate overnight, basting occasionally.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 °F. Place a large, shallow roasting pan on the oven bottom. Fill with 1/2 inch water. Place spare ribs on a roasting rack.
  3. Roast ribs for 45 minutes.
  4. Raise oven temperature to 450 °F, and roast for 15 more minutes.
  5. Serve hot or cold.

Notes, tips, and variationsEdit

  • Alternatively, bake at 375 °F for 20 mins then lower the temp to 325 °F for 1 hour; this renders most of the fat and produces very tender meat.
  • To actually barbecue the ribs on a grill, get grill temperature to 225 degrees and cook for 5-6 hours.
