Sticky Sweet and Sour Ribs

Saturday, September 19, 2015
Sticky Sweet and Sour Pork Spare Ribs or Baby Back Ribs are a family favorite main course or appetizer! Great for tailgating parties from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

I live for this time of year not only do I love football but I love all the delicious finger foods like these Sticky Sweet and Sour Ribs, fun times with good friends and family that happen while watching the game.
Sweet and Sour Pork Baby Back Ribs just happen to be my Sunday must have at the moment while watching football and what I'm bringing to all the football parties we're invited to. We also use the same recipe to make Sticky Sweet and Sour Spare Ribs all depending on what the store has on sale or I might have in the freezer.

I think every good tailgating party requires these stick to your fingers a little spicy, sweet and sour ribs to leave your friends and family fighting for seconds.

The secret to these is a lower cooking temperature for about an hour with a mopping of sauce every 15 minutes, then the ribs are covered in the remaining sweet and sour sauce and the temperature increased for 15 minutes to form the most amazing fall off the bone meat with a sticky, sweet glaze.

For future reference I know I need to make about 3 more racks of ribs then normal because the family just couldn't get enough.

For a main dish a rack of ribs will feed about 2-3 people or 1 Colt. Not only are these perfect for tailgating but there perfect for dinner too! 

Sticky Sweet and Sour Ribs will leave everyone licking their fingers wanting more. 



To make Sweet and Sour Sauce mix together:
  • 2 tablespoons Ketchup
  • 3 tablespoons Sweet Chili Sauce
  • 3 tablespoons Rice Vinegar
  • 1 tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Toasted Sesame Seed Oil
  • 2 cloves Minced Garlic
  • 2 teaspoons Fresh Grated Ginger
  • 2 teaspoons Soy Sauce

For every rack of ribs you will need to make this much sauce.

Cover baby back ribs or spare ribs with Sticky Sweet and Sour Sauce recipe.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 

Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and brush both sides of ribs well with Sweet and Sour Sauce recipe. The parchment paper will make clean up so much easier! 

Bake baby back ribs for 1 hour or about 1 hour 20 minutes basting with sauce every 15 minutes until meat is tender.

Once ribs are cooked through increase temperature to 425 degrees.

Pour remaining sauce over ribs to coat well and bake for 15 minutes until ribs are coated with a sticky glaze.

Alternatively these can be grilled using off set heat.

Add Black Pepper to taste for a little heat and Green Onions Sliced On the Bias.

Get ready to make a mess and have plenty of napkins! 

The sticky sweet and sour mess is what makes eating these ribs so much fun! 


Allow ribs to rest for about 5 minutes before slicing.

Using a sharp knife slice those bad boys up and get ready to get down to business! 

Sticky Sweet and Sour Ribs are so flavorful, tender, and juicy be prepared to be disappointed that they won't last long! 

We also love these Sweet and Sour Meatballs or Galbi Korean BBQ Short Ribs for a delicious appetizer or main dish.
