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 :)
Oven 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!!!!!***
If you were to look up the word "picky" in the dictionary, you would see a picture of my husband off to the left. Growing up, I was exposed to all sorts of different foods and encouraged to experiment with different flavors, but after meeting my husband, I somewhat locked myself into an eight to ten meal rotation and was reluctant to deviate. I have since given birth to two of the least picky eaters on the face of the Earth, thus inspiring me to transform my cooking style. I know many people, like myself, lead such hectic lives, so I strive to find recipes that are quick and easy--especially those that you can whip up with ingredients that you ordinarily have on hand!
A bit about me...I married my husband, Marcus, on June 1, 2003 and we welcomed our son Jacob on March 22, 2005. Our daughter, Madeline, was born on March 1, 2008. I stay home with the kids for the most part, but also work occasional shifts as a registered nurse at a local hospital. I truly hope you enjoy my blog. A special "thank you" to my sister, Sarah, for giving me the idea! Her creativity is hard to live up to, but I'm a very determined person and hope to make her proud :)
