Ribs or Chops in BBQ Sauce

The picture quality is very poor but the the lip smacking sauce is awesome! I didn't have enough ribs at home so I added a few pork chops to make it stretch.

Serve it with Lemon Basil Carrots and rice and you have a great meal.

  • 3 lbs of back ribs or a combination of ribs and chops
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons dry mustard powder
  • 1 teaspoon celery salt
  1. Cover the ribs in a large pot with water. Bring to a boil and simmer for 1 hour. 
  2. Drain the ribs and place in a large roasting pan. 
  3. Sauté the onions in the butter or margarine until softened. Add the remaining ingredients, bring to a boil and cook for a few minutes. 
  4. Pour the sauce over the boiled ribs, bake in a 300 degree oven for about 1 1/2 hours. 
  5. If you are adding pork chops to the ribs or making only pork chops. Brown the chops first and bake them for 45 minutes -1 hour at 350 for bone in chops, 30 minutes for boneless chops. 


  1. Honestly, I think the picture looks delicious! :-)

  2. Me too - the picture looks scrumptious! The sauce recipe looks so good.

  3. Looks delicious. I need a good "I can leave it bake" rib recipe. Have about 9lbs of ribs so I will triple the recipe. :)
