Apricot Pork Spareribs



  • 4 pounds pork side spareribs


  • 1 (19 ounce) can apricot halves, drained
  • 1 cup crushed pineapple
  • 1/4 cup apricot brandy
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger


  1. The day before the barbecue, place apricots in a blender. Process until smooth. Place apricot puree in a saucepan and add remaining marinade ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let cool.
  2. Place pork ribs in a glass or ceramic dish large enough for the sheets of ribs to lie flat. Pour marinade over ribs. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Turn a few times.
  3. Remove ribs from marinade. Reserve marinade for basting.
  4. Grill ribs over medium-hot coals for 15-20 minutes, basing and turning frequently.
  5. Cut ribs into serving pieces.
