When we were stationed at Fort Leonard Wood I found a book in the library which had this recipe. I wish I could find this book. It had so many good recipes, but they were all lost except this one. This recipe is FANTASTIC! Please make sure you make it. It got me through some hard times. It was our first real duty station. I had no family, no friends…I was so alone. I dealt with it by taking my child to the library for story time and I’d grab a cookbook and go home and cook! It was a good memory.
4 lbs country ribs or spare ribs
1 cup orange marmalade
3/4 cup water
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 cloves garlic
1/2 teaspoon ginger
dash of pepper
In a roasting pan place ribs meat side down. Roast uncovered in a 450 degree oven for 30 minutes. Drain fat. Turn meat over to meat side up. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees and roast uncovered for 60 minutes. Drain fat. I generally remove the pork into a separate plate at this point to make mixing easier. Mix all ingredients in roasting pan and replace ribs and ladle juices over ribs. Roast uncovered for 30 minutes until tender. Make sure to spoon sauce over ribs often.
