Place spareribs in a large pan, cover with salted water, and bring to a boil. Cook spareribs for 1 1/2 hours, drain, and allow spareribs to cool until they can be easily handled.

Bone spareribs and trim all visible fat. Discard bones and fat, and cut remaining meat into 1/2-inch cubes and reserve.

Heat butter in a large saute pan, preferably with a nonstick surface. Add potatoes and onions, and cook until tender.

Steam asparagus until fork tender but still vibrant green. Gently stuff asparagus in place of bones in spareribs.
