Fried Spare Ribs with Honey
1 1/4 lb Pork ribs, trimmed
3/4 c Sugar
1/2 c Vinegar
5 tb Soy sauce
3 tb Sherry
4 c Cooking oil

Cut the ribs between the bones into single pieces. Heat the sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, and sherry to a boil. Pour over the ribs and marinate for at least one hour. Heat the oil in a large wok. Add the ribs and fry for 5 minutes or until golden brown.

Turn off heat and allow to continue cooking an additional 4 minutes. Remove, drain, and serve. The sweet sauce, or honey, is a special touch. The ribs, if prepared perfectly, will be crisp on the outside, sweet and tender on the inside.
