Lightly season the spare ribs, rubbing the salt and pepper into the meat. Preheat the oven grill and cook the ribs for 7-10 minutes on each side (or bake at 180 degree C for 20 to minutes, turning halfway).
In a large frying pan or wok, heat the oil and gently cook the grated celery, garlic and ginger, stirring to prevent burning.
Add tomato puree, sake, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, freshly chopped chilli pepper and salt. Stir over low or no heat. Add ribs and toss to coat in sauce. Serve.
