Costillitas de Puerco en Salsa Roja (spare ribs in red sauce)

Rosa De Santiago Duenas


  1. 3 lbs spare ribs
  2. 8 Chile Guajillo or California
  3. Salt
  4. Pepper
  5. 1/8 tablespoon cumin
  6. 1/3 cup water
  7. 1 garlic clove


  1. Add Photo

    Rinse your spare ribs, and slice in between the bones

  2. Add Photo

    Heat your skillet/pan, place your spare ribs on medium heat and cover.

  3. Change

    Once they start releasing their natural juices add salt and pepper to taste (this is where they will absorb the flavor) and the 1/8 TBS of cumin, cover and let it release all the juices until it dries up on its own

  4. Change

    Now the natural grease will release and you need to stir occasionally so they can stir fry for a bit. (Until browning and kind of crisp on the edges)

  5. Add Photo

    Boil water, add your 8-10 chiles guajillo or California then blend together with that same water, add salt, and 1 garlic clove to blend fully.

  6. Add Photo

    Pour over your spare ribs evenly (you can strain the Chiles mixture of you don't like those bits on it)

  7. Add Photo

    Cover and let it simmer on medium low for another 10 mins.

  8. Change

    Serve hot and enjoy it paired with a green salad and Spanish rice.
