Spicy Marinated Lime Spareribs

Do you have your own barbecue? How is your experience with it? I never barbecue before but I do consider of having one myself.

This week, we made some spicy spareribs with a hint of lime. The spareribs are marinated overnight and baked in their own sauce. I guarantee you that you will love the taste of spicy and acidity. BBQing must taste even better.

Serves 4
Marinade Time: overnight
Baking Time: 1 hour

1 onion, chopped
1-inch ginger, sliced
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 red chile pepper, seeded and chopped
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tbsp brown sugar
3 tbsp lime juice
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 lb pork spareribs, separated
salt and pepper
cilantro for garnish


1. In a bowl, combine all ingredients except for spareribs and cilantro.

2. Place spareribs in a ziploc and pour in the marinade. Refrigerate and marinade overnight.

3. Preheat oven to 375F.

4. Place spareribs in a baking dish, covered with aluminium foil. Bake for an hour. Baste spareribs with the marinade and repeat this process every 5-10 mins. Serve.


  1. I have a small charcoal BBQ/smoker. Very inexpensive and I use it often. It's not gas though it's charcoal, but that's the best for the smoker part. Those ribs would be great on the smoker!

  2. I have a BBQ. I boils and simmer 45min, then marinate for hours, then finish them on the BBQ. Awesome. Love your recipe with a hint of lime, I am sure it give a great zingy taste.

  3. I love ribs! I don't have a BBQ, so I always braise them first, then douse them in sauce and broil them in the oven. This sounds like a more easygoing recipe, definitely something I'd like to try.

  4. Wow...thanks for the great suggestions.

    @Lyndsay: mmmm...I can imagine how I should taste on a smoker.

    @Evelyne: Never thought of cooking that way. I'm sure going to give it a try the next time I have access to a BBQ.

    @Valerie: I haven't try out broiling, that is good idea.

  5. I love the lime in your recipe. I am going to give it a try!
