Pork Spare Rib Recipes, Tips & Videos

Pork bills itself as "The Other White Meat", but everyone knows it's much more flavorful and satisfying than chicken or fish. And although chops are fine, nothing tastes better, no matter what the season, than pork spare ribs. Spare rib meat (also known as baby back) is from the belly side of the rib cage and contains more bone than meat. They do have extra fat which makes the meat more tender. Basically, what you give up in quantity you more than make up for in quality.

Pork Spare Rib Recipes

Barbecue Sauce Spare Ribs

These barbecue spare ribs have some special touches with crushed fennel seeds and red chilies.


4 lbs pork spare ribs

2 Tbs. olive oil

2 onions, peeled and chopped

4 garlic cloves, crushed

2 red chilies, finely chopped

2 tsp. fennel seeds, crushed

1/2 C. dark brown sugar

1/2 C. dark soy sauce

l/3 C. tomato ketchup

salt and freshly ground pepper


Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas 4. Place the spare ribs on a baking sheet and roast for 25-30 minutes until cooked through. While the ribs are cooking heat the olive oil in a saucepan. Add in the onion and garlic and fry until fragrant. Add in the chili, fennel seeds and sugar and cook, stirring often, until the sugar has melted. Add in the soy sauce and tomato ketchup. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper. Bring to the boil and simmer for around 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. Once the ribs have cooked through, remove them from the oven and brush liberally with half the barbecue sauce, leaving half for later. Return the ribs to the oven and cook for a further 10 minutes to glaze the ribs. Serve with the remaining barbecue sauce on the side. To enjoy these ribs at a barbecue, follow the recipe as above to where the ribs have cooked through. Brush the ribs with barbecue sauce and cook over a preheated barbecue until glazed, then serve.
