Hawaiian Spareribs

susan simons


This is one of my step fathers recipes, he's 86 and no longer cooks; but 27 years ago when he and my mother married boy he could cook and this was one of his signature dishes. Everyone in the family loved it.

I Don't make this much anymore it's too much for the two of use and is best the day you make it.

This recipe takes a little work but it is well worth the effort.
