Baked Maple Ribs

I found this recipe in "the Cook's Encyclopedia of Spices" by Sallie Morris and Lesley Mackley. I found the recipe a little too sweet. So I reduced the amount of maple syrup and sprinkled sea salt on the ribs. Thiswas quite popular in the Canada Day party.

2 tbsp oil
1 onion, cut into thin wedges
1 garlic clove, crushed
80mL maple syrup
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp tomato ketchup
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp mustard powder
1 tbsp red wine vinegar (alternatively 1/2 tsp red wine and 1/2 tsp white vinegar)
1 kg pork spare ribs
Sea Salt

1. Preheat the oven to 200 oC/400 oF/Gas 6. Heat the oil in a saucepan, add onion and garlic. Cook for about 5 mins until soft.
2. Add the maple syrup, soy suce, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, ginger, paprika, mustard powder, wine vinegar. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 2 mins.
3. Place the ribs in a roasting tin, pour over the sauce and turn the ribs to coate them completely. Cover the tin with foil and bake the ribs for 45 mins. Remove the foil and bake for 15 mins more. Once done, sprinkle some sea salt over the ribs. Enjoy!
