Yes, they are oven roasted, and no, they are not real barbecue but, for coming out of a conventional oven these ribs are pretty spectacular. More

Blogwatch: Chinese Braised Spare Ribs

Although it's the end of March, springtime weather has yet to hit all of us. In light of the cold and rainy weather in Vancouver, Allen of Eating Out Loud made Chinese braised spare ribs using a mixture of soy sauce and rice wine along with some golden syrup.
