BBQ'd Ribs in the Oven

These ribs are a great side to any BBQ, especially with Father's Day coming up this Sunday. It may be that the dad in your life loves ribs. Pork ribs are pricey, but go on sale quite often and freeze well.

Ingredients:
  • 2 - 3 lbs spare ribs (I use back pork ribs)
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 c water
  • 1/3 c BBQ sauce
  • 1/3 cup hot ketchup
  • 2 Tbsp dry mustard
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 c vinegar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • pepper
  • garlic powder
Method:
  1. Bake spare ribs at 350 F in covered roaster for 1 1/2 hours. Drain fat.
  2. In a small pot, sauté onion, then add the rest of the ingredients and simmer 15 min.
  3. Pour over baked ribs and continue baking 1/2 - 3/4 hours, covered.
  4. Serve with baked potatoes or pasta and a salad.

  2. Love your site! My fave is the french bread recipe that I use for pizza buns and foccacia - have shared with all my friends! What temp do you cook your ribs at? With 2 growing boys I think the ribs would be a big hit!

  5. Oh what a splendid idea for Father's Day. I boil the ribs first to get rid on any excess fat. Love the back ribs versus side ribs. The gals in our family love seafood and will celebrate the day with lobster, but the fellas don't appreciate seafood (thank goodness) and they will love the ribs.

  7. I have never heard of "hot" ketchup. I assume it is near the regular ketchup at the grocery store?

  8. Coleen .. yes, I bake it with the lid on the whole time.

    Lorrie . . . the hot ketchup is by the regular ketchup, but not all stores carry it. You can use regular ketchup and add a bit of chili sauce if you have that. The hot ketchup just makes it a tad spicy... yet with the sugar they are kind of sweet and sour.

  11. Sorry that the print button isn't working. Sometimes it just won't cooperate and we have no idea why.

  12. It looks like the print button is working now.
    Apparently it did not like the italic intro to the recipe. So sorry for the inconvenience. We realize it's a tad finiky at times.

    Made these ribs for Father's day for 14 of us. They were a huge disappointment :-(. They needed way more time in the oven. The next day I put them in the crock pot for 4 hours and they tasted great. So if anyone else is making these increase your time.

  15. Baker's Daughter ... I'm sorry they did not turn out for you on the first round. The only thing I can think of as being a problem is if you increased the ribs to feed 14 people (possibly tripling the recipe) and put them all in one roaster on top of each other, they could use longer baking time. For two or three racks I have never had to increase the baking time. Maybe you took that into consideration, but it's worth mentioning.
