"For people who don't want tons of sugar in their rubs, it's a nice change to provide lighter ribs. When I don't have spare ribs, I have pork chops."

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, then add the spareribs, and cook uncovered for 3 to 5 minutes. Drain in a colander and set aside.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over high heat. Stir in the ginger, green onions, and cinnamon; cook and stir until fragrant. Stir in the spareribs and cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Pour in the water, soy sauce, sugar, and rice wine. Season with salt and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to low and cover. Simmer until the spareribs are tender, about 1 hour.

I tried this last night for dinner and used 500 g back ribs and 250 g pork chops that I sliced into inch-wide strips, to make 8 servings. I didn't have any rice wine in the kitchen, so I substit...

very tasty, and the cinnamon is a nice touch. i cut down the water a LOT based on the reviews and this probably helped with the flavour. i quadrupled the recipe for 4 lbs of ribs but still use...

I have to admit I did use country style ribs instead of the spareribs so my recipe could have changed because of that. The ribs were dry in spite of being in all that water. There were suttle ...

Turned out great! Didn't have any cooking wine so I used 7up which is common for tenderizing meat in a simmering liquid. Used a bit more dark soy and no light soy. Used raw sugar and sea salt. ...
