My father's recipe for Chinese sweet and sour spare ribs.

He ate sweet and sour pork ribs in a New York Chinese restaurant and this is the recipe he gave me for making them.

Cook the spare ribs for about an hour, then prepare a sauce with peach preserves and ketchup and brush the sauce over the spare ribs, cook some more till the ribs are done.

  1. I am not so keen on sweet-and-sour food, but I really like the picture of your Dad - looking at that leather jacket, I can tell where you got your eye for style from!

  2. Francesca, That photo of your dad on the roof is classic New York! This rib recipe is a nice change from our usual spicy version. Thanks and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
