Lemon Spareribs


All you need is three ingredients and some marinating time, and these delicious tart and sweet spareribs will be ready.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 2 hours

Total Time: 2 hours, 10 minutes

Yield: 8 servings


  • 5 lbs. pork spareribs, cut into serving size pieces
  • 6 oz. can frozen lemonade or limeade concentrate, thawed
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/4 tsp. white pepper
  • 2 teaspoons steak seasoning


Place pork in large stockpot. Add enough water to cover pork. Heat to boiling and then reduce heat to low. Cover pork and simmer 1-1/2 hours until ribs are tender. Remove ribs with tongs to 13x9" glass baking dish. Mix lemonade concentrate, barbecue sauce, pepper, and steak seasoning in medium bowl and pour over ribs, turning to coat. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 6-24 hours.

When ready to grill, prepare and heat grill and remove pork from marinade. Reserve marinade. Grill pork, meat side up, uncovered, 4" from medium hot coals for 20-30 minutes, turning often and brushing frequently with marinade until ribs are glazed and hot. Let the ribs cook for 3-4 minutes, turning once, after final application of marinade. Discard remaining marinade.
