Oven-Barbecued Ribs (Or Grilled)
This is what I fixed for our Memorial Day dinner this weekend. The sauce is awesome. Even though it is an oven dinner, I put the ribs on the grill the same temperature and time as the oven method.
- 4 lbs. pork loin back ribs or meaty spareribs, cut into serving-size pieces
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup ketchup
- 2/3 cup chili sauce
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup chopped onion
- 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 1/2 teaspoons celery seed
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Place the ribs in a stockpot; add enough water to cover ribs. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 1 hour.
Meanwhile, for sauce, in a small saucepan cook the garlic in hot butter for 1 minute. Stir in ketchup, chili sauce, brown sugar, onion, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, celery seed, and salt. Bring to boiling, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Remove from heat; set aside.
Drain ribs; place in a shallow baking pan. Pour half the sauce over ribs and keep the other half for adding later, if you need it. Bake, covered, in a 350 degree oven about 20 minutes or until heated through. Makes 4 servings.
