Brined Pork Spareribs


3 lbs. pork spare ribs

½ cup of salt
1 tsp. mustard seeds
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. cayenne
1 tsp. paprika
3 bay leaves
3 cloves garlic – crushed

In a large bowl that has a cover or a pot that has a cover, place the rack of spare ribs. Add the ingredients for the brine and cover with water. Cover the container and place in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

In a baking pan place the ribs and add about an inch one inch of the brine water. Place in the oven and bake for about 2 - 2 ½ hours, do not replace the brine it should evaporate whle the ribs bake.

These were some of the most tender and tasty spare ribs.2 ½ They were delicious…. (if I must say so myself.)

I hope you enjoy them. These ribs are definitely worth the time to make.

Enjoy with Lots of Love,




  1. These sound delicious. I would have never thought to brine ribs, but it sure works well with turkey; they must really be tender and tasty:)

  2. Hello, I haven't had any chance to say thank you for being an online friend on Foodbuzz. Thank you :)

    What a talented cook you are. This look superb!

  3. mmm. spare ribs. Can't go wrong there!

  4. Wonderful! I love such spices and pork is one of my favorite meats.



  5. They look perfect! I should be getting some spare ribs soon (I have half of a pig headed my way). I can't wait to try this!

  6. Catherine, I love these brined spareribs! Looks fingerlicking!

  7. These look and sound so good! I love ribs but get impatient when cooking on the grill. This method sounds perfect and if I want I can add bbq sauce at the end.

  8. Catherine ,
