My First Cooking Adventure -- Let's Cook Short Ribs

This is my first attempt to cook from scratch and what better way to start than to cook Spare Ribs! I was inspired after reading my Real Simple magazine and saw the recipe for it.

So I just hopped to it. Since it was my first cooking adventure, I decided to cook for one, which was a mistake considering I had spare ribs for three nights straight... I loved eating them, but having too much of a good thing is... well, you know -- too much of a good thing ... :D

I had to admit it was a bit daunting cooking this. You first have to marinade the heck out of the ribs, then bake it and finally you put it in the broiler for the final "crisp and charred" look. [If you haven't got the faintest idea what a broiler is ... well, its the bottom thing below your oven which you probably thought was part of the oven decor -- it actually has a practical use! -- so pull that straight handle and open it up! -- if you turn it on, you'll notice the flames are raging down there!]

oh yes, heaven! BUT, I do have to say -- i think the spare ribs that Sandy Ko once made were far more delicious and tender... so I will be asking her for her family recipe ... and I will cook this dish once more! yum yum yum!
