How you doin’? Do you love those sticky spare ribs you get in a Chinese restaurant? Well, you can make them at home. Chinese spare ribs are another one of the Chinese restaurant take-out favorites. Armed with a couple of ingredients from the Asian section of your local grocery store you won’t have to go to the restaurant for these high-priced choices anymore.
While Chinese spare ribs are a classic dish we all love to eat, few people attempt to cook at home. It can seem a bit intimidating for those without experience cooking Asian foods. But don’t let this intimidate you. The good news is besides using a few, maybe unfamiliar ingredients, Chinese spare ribs are just barbecued ribs—with a different taste profile. They’re as easy-to-make at home as any other barbecued rib dishes. This straightforward recipe shows you how to make Chinese spare ribs and give you the confidence you need to try out this delicious dish at home without fear of failure.
For those wondering why they’re called “Wan-Q Chinese Sticky Spare Ribs,” it was my family’s go-to Chinese restaurant. Read a little history of Wan-Q here.

Quip of the Day: “Think about this, won’t you? Instead of buying fireworks or an extra six-pack of Bud this 4th of July, buy two (2) cans of pet food for a shelter animal. Don’t make noise; make a difference. You’ll feel better for it!”
