The recipe is quite simple: mix 18 oz. of barbeque sauce (1 bottle) with 1/2 cup (120 mL) orange juice. Pour into a 9x13-in pan. Place ribs in pan and flip using tongs so ribs are coated. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake in a 300°F (150°C) oven. Total cooking time can be as short as 2 hours or as long as 4 hours. Flip ribs over halfway through cooking.
After the ribs are done cooking, remove th aluminum foil and continue to cook for about 10 min. per side to thicken the sauce.
A variation on this recipe is to make Chinese cinnamon spare ribs. Usually this dish is made on a stovetop with spare ribs cut into small pieces. This recipe will work for both whole ribs and for cut ribs, but I prefer the whole ribs.
In a mixing bowl, combine 1 cup (245 mL) soy sauce, 1 cup (220 g) brown sugar, 1 cup (245 mL) sherry, 1 tsp. (2.3 g) ground cinnamon, and 1 tsp. (2.1 g) ground black pepper. Pour into 9x13 pan and bake in same way as previous recipe.}?>
