Named for the amount of ingredients in the vinegar-based barbecue sauce, these braised pork ribs are tender to the bone.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a 4- to 5-qt. Dutch oven or pot over medium-high heat. Add enough of the sparerib pieces, fat sides down, to fit in a single layer. Cook 10 minutes or until browned, turning once. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining pieces. Discard fat.

  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl stir together wine, vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, and water until sugar dissolves.

  • Return all ribs to Dutch oven with any juices. Add wine mixture. Bring to boiling, stirring to coat ribs. Reduce heat. Simmer, covered, 1 hour or until ribs are very tender, stirring once or twice. Uncover; increase heat to medium-high. Cook 10 minutes or until sauce thickens slightly.

  • For salad: Transfer 1 Tbsp. cooking liquid to a large bowl. Add lemon juice and honey; whisk until smooth. Add greens. Toss to coat. Serve salad with ribs and rice. *Tip: Have your butcher cut a rack of ribs crosswise into 1-inch-wide sections, then you can cut between bones to separate into pieces.


Have the butcher cut the rack of ribs across the bone into 1-inch pieces, then you can cut between bones to separate pieces.
