Spare ribs have more fat than baby back ribs and makes this cut of pork rib very tender. The pork preparation is basic, and cooked in the oven, with the key flavors being a result of the simple glaze. To avoid burning, don't over glaze the ribs. Allow them to cook slowly and baste them with the glaze multiple times during the cooking process for the perfect tangy spare ribs
