  • 3 pounds spareribs or Texas-style ribs

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce

  • 1/2 cup ketchup

  • 3 Tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1 egg-size gingerroot, grated

  • 1 teaspoon MSG (optional)


Place the ribs in enough water to cover in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil and reduce the heat.  Simmer for 15 minutes; drain.  Mix the sugar and salt together.  Rub on all sides of the ribs.  Place in a container and cover.  Chill in the refrigerator for 8 to 12 hours.  Combine the soy sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, gingerroot and MSG in a bowl and mix well.  Chill, covered, in the refrigerator for 8 to 12 hours.

Brush the ribs with some of the sauce and place in a baking pan.  Let stand for 1 hour.  Bake, covered with foil, at 325 degrees for 1-1/2 hours.  Remove the foil.  Bake for 30 minutes longer, basting with the remaining sauce every 15 minutes.
