I really wish I had this smell permeating through my home everyday!!! It's almost as good as brownies baking :) Kroger had pork spareribs on sale for $.97/lb and there was no way I could pass up such a deal! I've always made them the same way (aside from a time or two when I got daring and tried a new recipe)...I put them on a rack with a little water, cook them for several hours on a 275 degree oven (covered) and then remove the cover for the last 30 minutes and add BBQ sauce. NEVER AGAIN!!!! I loved boiling them first--they were so tender before I even put them in the oven! I look forward to trying this sauce again, maybe even on baby back ribs :)
8 pounds pork spareribs
2 cups ketchup
1 1/2 cups BBQ sauce (of course I used Sweet Baby Rays!)
1 cup brown sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
4 tablespoons steak sauce
1 dash hot pepper sauce, or to taste
2 cloves garlic, minced (I'm pretty sure I added a *bit* more!)
Place the ribs in a large stock pot with enough water to cover. Bring the water to a boil and cook over medium-high heat for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In medium saucepan, combine ketchup, barbeque sauce, brown sugar, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper sauce, steak sauce and garlic; blend well. Cook the sauce over medium heat for approximately 20 minutes.
Cut the ribs between the bones and place in a baking pan. Pour sauce over ribs, cover and cook for 30 minutes. Remove foil and continue cooking for an additional 30 minutes.
***I'd also like to wish my sister, Sarah, (Delectable Dining) a very Happy Birthday!!!!!***
