These take a little time, but well worth time and effort. you can spice these up a tad, choose your favorite spice. I love chinese food, ideally i would rather sit and have it brought to me, and all I would have to do is eat the food. (LOL)
Cut spareribs into individual ribs or ask your butcher to do this for you. Place ribs in roasting pan.
Heat oil in a saucepan and fry onion and garlic until softened but not browned. Stir in all remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Pour sauce over ribs and cook in a 325 oven for 1 1/2 hours, basting frequently.
