Our Family's Ultimate (and Ultra-Simple) Spare Ribs

How about these rather extravagant spare ribs for a festive occasion?
Children love the ketchup-based flavorings! This is it for birthday parties.

Ingredients: 2 to 3 servings

Pork spare ribs
600 to 700 g
Soy sauce
3 tablespoons
3 tablespoons
2 tablespoons
1 tablespoon
Japanese Worcestershire-style sauce
1 tablespoon
1 clove
1 piece
Salt and pepper
A small amount


1. Lightly season the spare ribs with salt and pepper. Put the ribs with the rest of the ingredients into a double-layer plastic bag. (Grate the ginger and garlic beforehand.)
2. Massage the ribs lightly over the bags, so that the marinade penetrates them. When the marinade is evenly distributed as seen in the photo, it's good to go.
3. You can cook them right away, but they are best if you let them rest in the refrigerator for a while to allow the flavors to penetrate well.
4. Put some oil in a frying pan, put in the spare ribs marinade and all, and cook them. They're done when cooked through thoroughly.

Story Behind this Recipe

Bone-in meat looks indulgent, and is great for festive occasions.
I used ketchup in the marinade sauce for my growing kids, and they absolutely loved it!!
I make it for them often on their birthdays.
