  • What You'll Need:

  • 2

    (10-½-ounce) cans condensed beef broth

  • ½

    cup ketchup

  • ½

    cup honey

  • ½

    cup soy sauce

  • 8

    garlic cloves, minced

  • ¼

    teaspoon red food color (see Notes)

  • 2

    teaspoons salt

  • 4

    pounds pork baby back ribs


What To Do: In a 9" x 13" baking dish, combine all ingredients except the ribs; mix well. Add ribs, turning to coat well with the marinade. Cover and chill overnight, or at least 4 hours, turning occasionally. Preheat oven to 450 degree F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place spareribs on baking sheet; reserve marinade for basting. Bake 15 minutes then reduce heat to 350 degree F. and bake 1 to 1-1/4 hours, or until ribs are tender and glaze is crispy, basting occasionally with reserved marinade. Cut into individual ribs and serve. Notes In most Chinese-American restaurants, red food color is used to give these spareribs their bright color.
