3 tablespoons Apricot preserves
1 tsp garlic pepper
1 onion – sliced

Simmer spareribs in a large pot with garlic, peppercorns and bay leaves. Let them simmer for about 5-10 minutes. Drain the spareribs, cool and separate into individual ribs with a cooking scissor.

Preheat Oven 350 degrees:

Prepare marinade and in a deep pan and cover the spareribs with the marinade. Cover the pan with aluminum foil and place a few slits on top. Place in the oven covered for about 1 hour.

Uncover the ribs and continue to bake at 300 degrees for another hour or so.

These ribs will be tender and tasty. They got a good review at my table.
