Finally! A reason to keep cola in the house.
I can definitely see more pork spareribs in my future.
For this recipe, I chose country-style spare ribs -- lots of meat, zero bones. First I rubbed them with a mixture of ginger and five-spice powder, then coated them with a mixture of apricot jam, orange juice, and lemon juice.
After letting the ribs marinate for a few hours, they went into the oven to bake in the marinade for about 1 1/2 hours. Then, a cup of coke was poured over the ribs and they continued to bake for another 30 minutes.
The end result was so worth the time and effort -- tender, meaty ribs with a most delicious teriyaki-like sauce.
