Grilled Baby Back Ribs

One of my eldest sons most requested recipe is the barbecue/grilled baby back ribs aside from tortang talong (eggplant omelette) and fried fish. Out of the whole baby back ribs, my share would only be  1/4 and the rest goes to his tummy. He already took 1/4  of  the ribs while I already grabbed  mine and the rest shown in the picture will still be his. He'll  back later to get all of it.

Here is my recipe:
1/2   slab spare rib  or 1 kilo ribs
1/2 cup tomato /banana catsup
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup pine apple juice(optional) 
1/4 cup vinegar
1/cup soy sauce
1 tsp ginger powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp paprika
2 tsp chili powder(optional)
1 tsp black pepper
1 T salt

Cooking instructions:
1.Season the  ribs with salt and pepper .Arrange in an iron skillet or oven proof dish and cover with aluminum foil.Bake at 350 degrees  for 1 hour. Remove from the oven .
2.Combine the remaining ingredients .Pour over the ribs , return to oven  uncover and bake for 30 minutes or more.

*You can add or put a little more of the ingredients according to your taste.
*You can put any spices available in your pantry.
*Cooking is fun  and easy if you just know how to use and experiment on  the spices.

  8. OMG, bad idea to visit food blogs this late at night. Nakakagutom! I always wondered what causes that color in some grilled dishes. Iniisip ko atsuete or something to look appetizing. I forgot how we Pinoy's love ketchup. I think we used Mama Frita for chili wings.
