    Just bought some pork ribs and need a recipe to make spare ribs (you know like you get from a Chinese take away), looked in all my cookery books (including Mrs Beetons!) and cannot find one.

    Thank you!

    If you want recipes, start trolling a thread. :wink:

    My cheap and lazy szechuan ribs/wings:

    4 tbsp soy sauce
    4 tsp brown sugar
    2 crushed garlic cloves
    1/2 tsp hot pepper sauce (or to taste)
    2 lbs uncooked ribs

    Separate ribs and boil in a large stockpot for 30-35 minutes.
    Drain water and fat away and place ribs in a large bowl with a tight fitting cover.
    Mix sauce, sugar, garlic, hot pepper in a small bowl. Pour over ribs, cover bowl and shake to coat.
    Arrange ribs on a broiler pan and bake for 15-20 minutes at 375 F.

    Here are 31 recipes... read through a few, and choose one that sounds like what you are looking for!

    (The ones that call for hoisin sauce will likely be closer to what you get at a chinese restaurant...)

    With so much good advice on recipes already, I can’t do any better. What I would say though, is if you buy propriety sauces check the salt content before you start marinating or combining. Often theses things have a high salt content that for a Western pallet could ruin a meal and not to mention affect your health! If you make up your own sauce, you’ll be more in control – and don’t forget a touch of star anis.
    Bon appetite

    Thanks guys (interesting that only men replied - although it was my dad that taught me to cook), I appreciate your help - I will let you know how they turn out. I always make my own sauces and marinades, I enjoy the experience but just couldn't think how to do this dish!! (Blonde moment I expect!) I don't use packet mixes for anything (did you know you can get ones for batter and crumble!!!!!!!!!), its much nicer and easier (I feel) to make your own and at least you know whats in it!

    Cheers x

    I baste mine in sweet pickle juice while I smoke them on the grill over pecan wood. Then before you serve them brush on the sweet sauce of your choice. Cant go wrong. Go to foodnetwork website. Bon Apetit!!!!!!!!!!!!

    True! And yet traditionally the kitchen has always been the habitat of women!

    Thanks again everyone (except SB - you obviously need a nice man to come and give you some lessons - :wink:), will let you know how they turn out.

    Anyone want to ask about other recipes - sometimes family recipes are better than the ones in the books (or online)?
