Tips

Expert Tips

Pork spareribs are at their tastiest when precooked with moisture as done here in the microwave. Cut ribs into serving-size pieces before cooking so they are easy to rearrange during microwaving--this ensures even cooking. The grill is used primarily to brown and flavor the meat.
