How to Make Hot and Spicy Spareribs


  • 1Melt butter in a large skillet over low heat; add onion and garlic, and saute until tender. Add tomato sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, chili powder, mustard and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 2Place ribs on grill over indirect heat; close grill hood. Grill for 1-1/2 hours and then begin basting with sauce every ten minutes, for 30 more minutes. Remove ribs from grill and serve, cutting into serving-size portions. If desired, bring any remaining sauce to a boil, boiling gently for 5 minutes; serve on the side.
  • 3Note:
    Be sure to sauce the ribs toward the end of the cooking time so that the sauce doesn't burn.

    Some may enjoy with hot peppers on the side
