MY HUSBAND and I love to cook and we’re always looking for something a little different. These ribs are a refreshing change from the traditional tomato based barbecue sauces. A friend gave me this recipe years ago and it has been a family favorite since.

Ingredients

  • 4 pounds pork spareribs, cut into serving-size pieces
  • 1 can (21 ounces) cherry pie filling
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons spicy brown mustard
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger

Meanwhile, place pie filling in a food processor; cover and process until smooth.
In a small saucepan, saute onion in oil until tender. Stir in the pie filling, soy sauce, mustard, ginger and Worcestershire sauce.

"Didn't really think these were anything special. Don't think I will make again. I like a stronger bbq sauce flavor I guess."

"We made these ribs for our Father's Day cookout and most people thought they were an interesting change. I liked them a lot and would make again."
