Cranberry Spareribs

At first glance, this seems like an odd combination of ingredients, but the result is absolutely delicious.


6 servings


4 pounds spareribs
1 (14 ounce) can whole-berry cranberry sauce
1 (10 ounce) can beef gravy
1/2 cup orange marmalade
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vinegar


Cut ribs into serving-size pieces; place in a Dutch oven or large kettle. Cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 45 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine cranberry sauce, gravy, marmalade, lemon juice and cinnamon; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat; stir in vinegar.

Preheat oven to 400°F (204°C). Grease a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Drain ribs; place with meat side up in prepared baking dish. Pour 2 1/2 cups of sauce over ribs.

Cover and bake for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake 15 to 20 minutes longer or until meat is tender, basting every 5 minutes with remaining sauce.
