1/4 Photos of Awesome Ribs for Pork or Beef

Leggy Peggy's Note:
This is an awesome and easy-to-make rib recipe. I always thought it was my mother's creation, but a few years ago I found a very similar version in a 1950s Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook. We'll never know who made it first. My mother was a home economist, and a goddess of recipes -- I should post more of her gems. Anyway, I usually make this with pork ribs (almost any cut), but also discovered that it was great for beef ribs. That was when I lived in Syria and pork was hard to get. The first time I ordered ribs from the Syrian butcher, he proudly and kindly cut out the ribs. Bummer. By the way, don't be put off by the number of steps. This is really easy to make.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Cut ribs into individual ribs, and place all the pieces in large roasting pan.
- 2Scatter the thickly sliced onions over the ribs.
- 3Sprinkle lemon juice over the ribs.
- 4Bake for one hour in an oven that has been pre-heated to 350 degrees.
- 5Pour off ALL the fat and juice that has accumulated.
- 6In the meantime, make the sauce.
- 7To make the sauce, combine the last five ingredients in a saucepan, and cook (boil) for 20-25 minutes. Stir frequently. You want the sauce to cook down and thicken up.
- 8Dip cooked ribs into the sauce, and place in roasting pan. It's best if you make a single layer of ribs at this stage so, if necessary, use more than one pan.
- 9Dip cooked onions into sauce, and scatter over ribs.
- 10At this stage, you can refrigerate the concoction (covered with cling wrap) for a day or two -- so the flavours can really meld.
- 11Cook ribs a second time—for 30-60 minutes—in an oven that has been pre-heated to 325°F If you have refrigerated the concoction, take out of the fridge at least two hours before the second cooking. Thanks to Heystopthatnow for alerting me to the fact that I had omitted a cooking time for this step.
- 12Before the second cooking, baste the ribs. Then baste them again every 10 minutes. You want the ribs to be saucy.
- 13Serve with corn cobs, baked potatoes and salad. Garlic bread is nice, too.
