Spare Ribs Adobo is pork ribs cooked with a delicious blend of sweet and spicy ingredients. Cooked similar to traditional Adobo, it is an excellent appetizer or beer match often served at parties and social gatherings. It is sometimes served on a sizzling plate and paired with garlic fried rice.
The trick is make sure the ribs are tender, so they won’t be difficult to chew, and you have that melt in your mouth experience. This dish is along the lines of a dry adobo. I personally prefer this when eating spare ribs.
