Just the tempting aroma of these ribs reminds me of many simple but delicious meals mom made.  Dad especially loved these tender tasty ribs with their thick, tangy sauce.  Mom liked them because the sauce was no fuss to make.

Sweet and Sour Spareribs Recipe

Sweet and Sour Spareribs

5 to 6 lbs. pork spareribs or pork loin back ribs

½ cup sugar

½ cup packed brown sugar

2 Tbsp. cornstarch

1 cup ketchup

2/3 cup cider vinegar

½ cup cold water

Place ribs on a rack in a large shallow pan.  Bake, uncovered, at 350 F.  for 1 ½ hours.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the sugar, brown sugar, cornstarch, ketchup, vinegar and water until smooth.  Bring to a boil.  Cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened.  Remove ribs and rack from pan.  Drain and discard fat.  Return ribs to roasting pan; drizzle 1 ½ cups sauce over ribs.  Bake 3 minutes longer.  Cut ribs into serving-size pieces; brush with remaining sauce.
