Ingredients

Marinade:

1 tablespoon canola oil

2 tablespoons barbeque sauce

2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce

3 tablespoons white vinegar

1/4 cup soy sauce

2 teaspoons finely chopped ginger

1 tablespoon chopped garlic

1 cup pineapple juice

1/4 cup brown sugar

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 1/2 pounds pork spareribs

Fried Noodles:

1/2 (12-ounce) package wonton wrappers

1 cup canola oil

Directions

  1. In a small bowl whisk together all the ingredients for the marinade. Cut the spareribs into individual ribs and put in a resealable plastic bag. Pour the marinade into the bag and toss to coat. Put the bag into a large bowl and refrigerate to let marinate for at least 2 hours or as long as overnight.
  2. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Remove the spare ribs from marinade and arrange on a baking sheet, cover with foil and poke holes in the foil to vent. Reserve the marinade. Bake until the ribs are tender, about 1 1/2 hours.
  3. In the meantime, pour the reserved marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat and simmer the mixture until thick, about 30 minutes. Set aside.
  4. After 1 1/2 hours, remove the foil from the spareribs and raise oven temperature to 400 degrees F. Baste the ribs with the reduced marinade and roast in oven for 5 minutes. Turn and baste the ribs again with the remaining sauce and roast for an additional 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and arrange the ribs on a serving platter. Serve hot with Fried Noodles.
  5. Fried Noodles:
  6. Heat 1 cup canola oil in a medium heavy saucepan, to about 350 degrees F. Cut the wonton wrappers into 1/2-inch wide strips. Fry in batches until golden brown and drain on plate lined with a brown paper bag or paper towels.
