  1. In a bowl, stir together light and dark soy sauces, crushed peppercorns, garlic and 2 tablespoons orange juice. Place spare ribs in the marinade. Cover and set aside for at least 30 minutes. (If marinating much longer than 30 minutes, refrigerate.)
  2. Transfer marinade to a large stock pot and set ribs aside. To the stock pot add remaining orange juice, water, cinnamon sticks, star anise and sugar. Bring to the boil.
  3. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Carefully place ribs in oil and fry for 2 minutes per side or until edges are sealed. Transfer to the stock pot and boil, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Cover and simmer for 1 hour, adding hard boiled eggs at this point, if using.

My husband and I LOVED this! It was so yummy!! I personally don't like spare ribs, so next time I make it I think I will use a pork roast sliced or something, but the flavor was phenomenal!! I made it with Coconut Jasmine Rice and it was a wonderful accompaniment to the dish!! I will definately make this one again, it made me feel like a gourmet chef! ;o)-04 Jan 2006

This is really delicious. I suggest you stick to the oranges. I made a mistake of substituting them on the second batch I made. It was such a hit! I made this with beef chucks and they tasted even better.-07 Jun 2005
