Mom's spare ribs

My mother usually served these with the full home made chinese food production such as egg rolls, pineapple chicken, chow mein and such. But these are good on their own. If you don't have time for a huge production, you can serve these on their own, which makes it ideal for a weekday meal. Last time I tried this, I served the ribs with rice and vegees. Simple enough?


  • Rack of porc ribs (take shortest ribs you can find).
  • VH spare rib sauce (medium).
  • Vegetable oil.


  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  • Cut ribs between bones.
  • Boil for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from water, and pat dry.
  • Fry in pan with a bit of vegetable oil, until golden (couple minutes).
  • Put ribs in a pot with VH spare rib sauce.
  • Simmer 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Serve with rice and vegetable.
