Football Food: Marriage Of Maple And Pig Will Make You A Fan
I knew I’d find a great recipe for football watching.
Sure enough, pork and maple are a great combination. And don’t Crispy Maple Spareribs just sound like what you should eat when football is also on the menu?
Crispy Maple Spareribs
3 pounds lean pork spareribs
1 small onion, finely chopped
Â¾ cup pure maple syrup
1 tablespoon chili sauce
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Â¼ teaspoon dry mustard
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Arrange the ribs on a wire rack in a roasting pan and roast for 30 minutes.
Combine the onion, maple syrup, chili sauce, vinegar, Worcestershire, mustard, and salt and pepper to taste in a small saucepan and bring to a boil; boil for 5 minutes.
Lower the oven temperature to 350 degrees. Remove the ribs from the rack and arrange in a baking pan; brush them with the sauce. Bake uncovered for 45 to 60 minutes, basting frequently, until the ribs are glazed to a deep mahogany color.
Cut between the rib bones with a sharp knife and serve.
Makes 4 servings.
