The name of the sauce is char-siu. It gets its red color from food dye. You can purchase the sauce yourself and it’ll taste better than home made. It’ll taste the same as the restaurants.

The best cut of pork for the recipe

If you didn’t know, country-style ribs are not from the ribs themselves. They are from the pork butt which gets very tender and is tasty. But, for actual spare ribs you’ll have to remove the meat from them yourself. Yet, they’ll be true spare ribs with a bit more work.
