“I mentioned to a friend at work that I was looking for something other than a barbeque sauce for pork ribs. The next day she brought me a recipe for "Swedish Spareribs" that her mother had gotten off of the internet-not Zaar. The secret ingredient is allspice. These are so simple to prepare and you probably have all the ingredients in your pantry. These are so flavorful and tender, they take spareribs to a whole new level!”
