4 pounds spareribs, cut in serving-size pieces
2 cups sliced onion
2 large cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup vinegar
1/3 cup chili sauce
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon dry mustard

Place ribs, meaty side down, in a shallow roasting pan. Roast at 450° for 30 minutes. Drain off excess fat. Turn ribs over. In a saucepan, cook onion in oil until softened; add garlic, 1/2 cup water, salt, vinegar, chili sauce, brown sugar, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce and dry mustard. Simmer sauce for 10 minutes; pour over ribs. Reduce oven temperature to 350° and roast ribs for 1 1/2 hours, or until ribs are very tender. Baste ribs occasionally with sauce and add more water if sauce becomes very thick.
