For this Chinese Spare Ribs in Szechuan Sauce recipe, the Spare Ribs should be cut into 2.5cm/1″ pieces. I have given 2 cooking methods for Chinese Spare Ribs in Szechuan Sauce, and which method you use really depends on the type of spare ribs. If your ribs are thick and meaty then use the Oven method but if the ribs are not so meaty, as in many Chinese Spare Rib dishes, then the frying method is ideal.
