Pork spare ribs HERO

Preheat the oven to 160ºC (315ºF/Gas 2–3). Cook the pork spare-ribs for 45 minutes in a large saucepan of water, skimming regularly. Rinse. Peel and finely chop the garlic and the shallots. Combine them with the tomato sauce, soy sauce, olive oil and tandoori spices. Lay the ribs in a gratin dish, coat with the marinade. Bake for 30 minutes, basting the ribs with the sauce. Serve when the flesh comes away from the bones.
