Asian Marinated Pork Spareribs

Well, we survived the first few days of back to school with only a few little glitches and are in full swing with school-sports mode here at the Farias household. I actually made today's recipe about two weeks ago as my kids were dying (well not literally of course) for ribs. I hadn't made them in a while (May to be exact) and since the end of summer was nearing, it only seemed fitting to make them again. I didn't want the traditional kind with bbq sauces, so I made this soy sauce based marinade instead. These were delicious and sticky and gooey...all of the things a sparerib should be and the family LOVED them! 

Asian Marinated Pork Spareribs
2 Full Racks Pork Spareribs
Prepared Asian Marinade

1. Cut racks in half forming four racks. 
2. Place them in a large pot, cover with water and bring to a boil. 
3. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 1/2 hours. 
4. Remove ribs and brush with the prepared marinade. 
5. Either grill the ribs until they are browned or bake at 425 degrees for 15-20 minutes. 
Serves 4-6. 

Asian Marinade
3/4 c. Low Sodium Soy Sauce
2 tbsp. Ketchup (I use Heinz)
1 tbsp. Stone Ground Mustard
1/2 c. Honey
1 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/4 c. Scallions, chopped

1. Add all ingredients to a medium saucepan, mix well, then bring to a boil. 
2. Reduce heat and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until sauce has thickened. 
3. Let cool.
