1.5 kg pork spareribs
3 cups chicken broth 750 mL
3 tbsp brown sugar 35 g
2 tbsp paprika 18 g
1 tsp cayenne pepper 3 g
1 tbsp sesame seeds, ground 10 g
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp salt 9 g
2 tsp canola oil 10 mL
1 cup barbecue sauce 260 g

Before you start

The ribs must be precooked and marinated overnight prior to the final cooking using an oven or an outdoor grill.



Place the ribs in a large pot, cover with broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 45 min. Remove the ribs and drain.


In a bowl, mix the remaining ingredients, but the barbecue sauce. Add the ribs, turning them to coat well. Cover and chill in a refrigerator overnight (up to 48 h).

Barbecue or bake

Preheat the outdoor grill to low temperature (about 120ºC/250ºF) and lightly oil the rack. Place the ribs on the rack then cook about 45 min, turning the ribs from time to time.

Raise the temperature to 200ºC/400ºF, then transfer the ribs to a lower rack. Cook 10 min on each side. Brush them with the barbecue sauce, then cook an additional 5 min per side.

Alternatively, wrap the ribs in aluminum foil and cook 2 h in the oven at 120ºC/375ºF. Baste with the sauce and cook under the oven grill at 'broil', 10 min per side.

Serve the ribs with the remaining sauce on the side.
