3 pounds pork spareribs, cut into 3 to 4 rib portions
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup soy sauce
3 scallions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup ketchup
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon grated fresh gingerroot
Place the ribs in a large pot and add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and simmer for 40 minutes, or until ribs are tender; drain.
In a 9 x 13-inch baking dish, combine the remaining ingredients; mix well. Add the ribs to the baking dish, turning to coat evenly with the sauce. Let stand for 15 minutes.
Preheat the grill to medium heat. Grill the ribs 4 to 5 inches from the heat source for 4 to 5 minutes per side, brushing occasionally with the remaining sauce until glazed.
