* 5 lbs spareribs
* 4 cloves garlic
* 1 large piece of ginger root, crushed
* 1 tsp salt (optional)
* 1 cup sugar
* 1 cup soy sauce
* 1 cup catsup
* 1/3 cup oyster sauce or fish sauce
In a large saucepan, combine the pieces of ribs, garlic, ginger and salt (optional). Add enough water to cover the ribs. Bring the contents to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer until all of the ribs are tender. This should take about 1 1/2 hours.
When the ribs are tender, drain the ribs and set aside. Prepare a marinade with the sugar, soy sauce, catsup and oyster sauce. Fish sauce can be substituted. Marinate the ribs overnight in the refrigerator.
Place ribs on the rack of a broiler pan or on the grill. Broil or grill for about 8-10 minutes, basting frequently. Turn and broil or grill the ribs for an additional 5-7 minutes.
