Makes: 4 to 6  servings Prep 15 mins Cook 200°F4 hrs 30 mins


  • 2 tablespoons  vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped (about 3/4 cup)
  • 1 large garlic clove, pressed
  • 3/4 cup  water
  • 1/4 cup  cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons  molasses
  • 1 tablespoon  Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon  mustard
  • 1 tablespoon  chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon  freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon  ginger
  • 1 ounce can (6 oz.) tomato paste
  • 1 pound  (2-1/2 to 4 lbs.) pork spare ribs


1. Heat oven to 200 degree F. In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and cook 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally until translucent . Stir in garlic and cook 1 minute more. Stir in water, vinegar, molasses, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, chili powder, salt, pepper, ginger, and tomato paste and cook over low heat 5 minutes, stirring frequently until mixture begins to thicken.

2. Place ribs in a 9x13-inch glass baking dish (you may need to cut the rack end off to make it fit in the pan. If so, simply fit the cut piece into the pan, keeping as even a layer as possible.) Pour sauce over ribs. Cover dish tightly with heavy duty aluminum foil, and bake until ribs are tender, about 4 hours.

3. Heat grill. Carefully transfer ribs to a platter, letting most of the sauce drip off. Transfer sauce to a small saucepan. Place pan with sauce on corner of the grill to heat. Grill ribs uncovered, 10 to 15 minutes, turning occasionally. During the last 5 minutes of grilling, brush both sides of the ribs with the sauce. Transfer ribs to a serving platter and serve remaining sauce in a bowl on the side. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
