Heat oil in a deep fat fryer, or large wok.
Slowly cook the marinaded spareribs, until they are brown. Do this in several batches. Drain each cooked batch on paper towels.
Put the sauce ingredients into a wok or frying pan. Bring sauce to the boil; reduce heat.

mermaiden 4 years agoActually, I doubled the recipe and ended up with 10 ribs. I served these on the 4th of July and they were a HUGE hit! I can't describe how delicious the house smelled after cooking them. [I posted this recipe.]
