How to Make Barbecued Spareribs


  • 1Preheat oven to 250.
  • 2Salt and pepper the pork ribs evenly and place in a baking dish and cook for 2 hours to render the fat and tenderize the meat.
  • 3Remove the ribs from the dish, drain the fat and set aside.
  • 4Heat a wok or large frying pan and add the oil.
  • 5Quickly add the shallots, scallions, ginger and garlic.
  • 6Stir-fry for 20 seconds and add the rest of the sauce ingredients.
  • 7Reduce the heat and simmer the sauce gently for 15 minutes.
  • 8Allow the sauce to cool. (These steps can be done hours ahead or even the night before.)
  • 9When you are ready to cook the ribs, smear them with the barbecue sauce.
  • 10Make a charcoal fire and, when the coals are ash white, grill the ribs, basting with any remaining sauce.
  • 11Cook the ribs for 5 to 10 minutes on each side, depending on thickness.
  • 12SUBSTITUTIONS: May use satay paste in place of Chinese chili bean sauce.
