3 to 3 1/2 pound pork spareribs
Salt, black pepper and red pepper to taste
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cup red wine
4 tablespoons brown sugar
1 cup chili sauce
4 tart apples, cored and halved or quartered
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Rinse off meat and pat dry with paper towel. Sprinkle with salt and peppers. Place ribs in shallow baking pan. Roast for 30 minutes then pour off fat from pan. Reduce baking temperature to 350 degrees F. Sprinkle onions over ribs.
In medium bowl mix wine, brown sugar and chili sauce together. Pour evenly over ribs and continue baking for 1 hour. Add the apple halves. Spoon pan drippings over apples and continue cooking an additional 30 minutes. Serves 4.
NOTE: If ribs are browning too much, cover pan with aluminum foil during the last 30 minutes.
