Sweet and Tangy Spareribs

Rated as 3.86 out of 5 Stars

"This recipe is one that has been passed down two generations. They taste like no other ribs I have ever tried. They are sweet and tangy just like the name says. They seem to come straight from the Orient. Lots of raves on this one. Very yummy."
