This recipe comes from a cookbook made by the women of my synagogue in the early 1970's. This is one of the best dishes - perfect for a winter meal over rice or mashed potatoes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut ribs into 2 inch lengths.
  2. Mix flour, salt, pepper and roll ribs until coated. Place in a large roasting pan with a lid.
  3. Arrange in a large casserole and cover with sliced onions.
  4. Mix together the catsup, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, sugar and water. Pour over ribs.
  5. Cover and bake in a slow oven, 300 degrees, for 3 hours.

These wre very good but I think the next time I make these I will cut back on the sugar. Just a tad too sweet for me and increase the vinegar a smidge. Otherwise made as instructed and you cannot get any easier than this!!

Wow my apartment smells *amazing*! Yummmm! I could only get my hands on 4 pounds of ribs but that is plenty for me for a few meals! I left everything else basically the same (used about half the salt and used red onion). These ribs are very succulent and tender - I had a difficult time waiting for them to cool off enough to dig in, after smelling the amazing smells coming from my kitchen the last few hours! Thanks very much for sharing!
