Spare ribs are a very special treat in this house but since we had our home-grown hogs butchered, we happen to have them in the freezer. So on a middle-of-the-week, hotter than heck summer day, and nobody present except our very own selves, we decided to have a feast.
These spare ribs were delicious. The sauce was divine. Try them next time you want a middle-of-the-week feast. That's all.
6 lb. pork spare ribs
1 t. salt
3 T cooking oil
1/3 c. finely chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
3/4 c. ketchup
1/3 c. light corn syrup
1/3 c. vinegar
2 T. worcestershire sauce
2 T. soy sauce
2 T. spicy mustard
Place ribs and salt in a kettle with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to low and simmer for 45 minutes or until almost tender.
Drain well. Set aside (in fridge if it won't be for a while)
Meanwhile, heat oil in 2 qt. saucepan over medium heat and sauce onion and garlic in it about five minutes or until tender. Add remaining ingredients, mixing well. Cook until mixture comes to a boil and then reduce heat and let simmer for 15 minutes.
Grill ribs over medium heat, turning and basting often with sauce, for about 30 minutes or until ribs are well glazed.
