Sylvia's World Famous Talked About Spareribs


  • 2 slabs pork spareribs (about 3 1/2 lbs)
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 to 3 cups white wine vinegar
  • Sylvia's Original Sauce


Rub salt, black pepper, and red pepper into ribs. Place in deep baking dish, cover, and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 375° F. Pour vinegar over the ribs and bake 1 1/2 hours. Rotate ribs 2 or 3 times during cooking.

Remove ribs from baking dish and place in a single layer on baking sheets. Bake at 350° F for 1 hour.

Cut slabs between bones into individual ribs and place in a baking dish. Spoon sauce over them to coat lightly. Cover pan with aluminum foil and bake until heated through - about 20 minutes. Serve with original sauce on the side.
