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

¾ cup pure maple syrup

1 tablespoon chili sauce

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

¼ 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.
