Sunset Jazz Spicy Spareribs
This is one of my favorite ways to prepare pork ribs to ensure that they will be tender but full of spicy flavor. The brown sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, and pineapple give the meat a tangy, delicious taste, and the ginger and hot sauce add just the right touch of spiciness.
- 1 (2-pound slab) St. Louis–style pork ribs
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/4 cup white vinegar
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 (14-ounce) can crushed pineapple with juice
- 2 tablespoons Tabasco sauce
1. Cut the slab into individual ribs and put the pieces in a large pot. Cover the ribs with water and simmer 20 minutes. Drain off the water and put the ribs in a baking pan.
2. In a small saucepan, combine the brown sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, salt, pepper, paprika, and ginger. Bring to a boil. Add the pineapple with juice. Reduce the heat and simmer the mixture for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the Tabasco sauce. You may want to add more brown sugar if you like a sweeter sauce, or more Tabasco sauce, if you prefer a spicier version.
3. Brush each rib with the sauce. Heat the broiler and broil about 5 to 7 minutes on each side or until done, basting often.Back to all recipesBack to top of page
