Are you looking for a meal that is not only delicious but high in protein? You will be happy to know that pork spare rib recipe has 72.5 grams of protein per serving, making this a great high protein food! Pork spare ribs are very easy to prepare and you even get to make your own bbq sauce(it isn’t that hard!). If you do not have the time or you’re just simply too lazy like I am from time to time, then you can buy it. My favorite happens to be Neely’s BBQ Seasoning which you can pick up at your local Wal-Mart for around $20 or buy online. Which ever you decide on if you plan to marinate then it is best you refrigerate for at least 24 hours prior to cooking. Lets get into the ingredients now.
- 2 slabs pork spare ribs (2 1/2 lbs each)
- 1/4 cup of salt
- 1/4 cup of black pepper
- 1 1/2 cups ketchup
- 1/3 cup cider vinegar
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Season ribs with chili powder, salt, and pepper. Stack slabs on a double layer of aluminum foil; wrap tightly. Place on a rimmed baking sheet. Cook until meat is fork-tender, 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
- Meanwhile, make barbecue sauce: In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook until soft, 2 to 3 minutes. Add ketchup, vinegar, Worcestershire, cayenne, and desired variation (see ingredients above). Bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly thick, about 5 minutes. Set aside.
- Heat grill to medium-high; lightly oil grates. Carefully remove ribs from foil, pouring off any accumulated liquid. Brush ribs generously with sauce; grill until charred, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Serve with extra sauce, if desired.
