This recipe was taken from a cookbook I did years ago while I was nursing. Our family has enjoyed them many, many times. I have tweeked it slightly. You can ask the butcher to cut the ribs in half lengthwise for you so you have riblets. I use the good baby back ribs. Take 3 lbs. of ribs cut in half or managable chunks and season well with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Broil well under broiler on both sides but they don’t have to be cooked through. I sometimes use my cookie cooling rack fitted over the bottom broiler pan as they cook really well this way, nice and crisp. In a large pot mix together the following:
2 cups white sugar
1 1/2 cups vinegar
4 Tbsp. low sodium soy sauce
4 Tbsp. flour mixed with 1/2 cup water
Combine all ingredients in the pot and bring to a boil. Simmer until mixture starts to thicken. Once you have finished broiling all the ribs cut them into individual pieces, cover and simmer in the sauce for 45-60 min. until the meat is starting to pull away from the bone. Serve over basmati rice with your favourite vegetable.
