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.

Directions

  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 followed this recipe exactly and it was very easy to make and required very little preparation. I was a little nervous when I first started cooking it because it seemed like there was a lot of cinnamon, but it was okay after it simmered for an hour. Also, this recipe isn't very salty, so you might want to add more soy sauce or salt to it so it isn't so bland. This recipe is a good starting point, but it seems to be lacking a lot of spices and flavor.

This was great - so tender and a good, simple flavor. I used boneless pork spareribs - they were super fatty so I took off as much fat as I could and boiling them initially as suggested was also very helpful. I followed the instructions except didn't add any salt or pepper. I let the pork boil for about 2 hours but when I tried it after 1 hour, I could tell it was already very tender.
