Sweet Orange Marmalade Spareribs

I’ve heard a lot of good feedback about Tom Cruise’s new movie, Edge of Tomorrow- that means, I can’t miss it!

We saw the movie, last Sunday, after playing DOTA 2 the whole day. It was an action packed movie with unpredictable scenes. I really enjoyed watching the movie, except for sitting down for more than 100 mins, my butt really hurt. Ouch! This is the reason why I choose cinemas with lazy boy seats. The seats are far from each other, which means watching the movie comfortably is not a problem, but it costs twice as much as regular cinemas.

Now let’s go to my Sweet Orange Marmalade Spareribs recipe. I read about apple glazed spareribs, but I didn’t have apples. The only thing I had that was close enough to a fruit was orange marmalade.

I simmered it for 45 minutes, just enough for the meat to be tender.  The marmalade mixture I made became thick and flavorful at the end of the cooking process.

Enjoy eating! I know I did! 🙂
