About this recipe:It might be cheating but some fresh pork ribs and a bottle of sweet chilli sauce are all you need to make finger-licking-good spare ribs! If your ribs are thin, they will be ready in 1 hour. If you opt for thicker ribs, it will take much longer. Balance out the meal by serving a big bowl of crispy cabbage or kale on the side.

Preheat an oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
Season the spareribs with salt and pepper. Pour the water into the bottom of a large roasting dish or baking tray; arrange the spareribs in an even layer in the dish and cover with foil.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes; pour about half the chilli sauce over the ribs, cover, and return to oven. Brush the ribs with more chili sauce every 5 minutes, and continue cooking until the meat pulls away easily from the bone, about 30 minutes more. Serve hot or cold.
