Chinese Chili Spare Ribs

Spare ribs are truly tasty!  These super chili charged, sticky Chinese spare ribs make for a great dinner. You can buy petite spare ribs for a smaller serving size, or look for the super fat, meaty ones, although those take longer to nook through.  For hotter ribs, leave the seeds in your chilis, for milder, remove the seeds. You can also make this with a milder pepper if you prefer.  Fry the spare ribs up in a wok or any good sized frying pan.
