Spare ribs are cut from a section just above the belly and are slightly meatier, but still deliciously rich. Some cooks like to blanch them first to remove some fat, but when cooked over a moderate grill, much of the fat either melts away, or mixes with the marinade to make them irresistible.
Instructions based off 800g pork spare ribs
Use additional ingredients of your choice:
