Being a "rib connoisseur", it took me years to find a barbecued rib recipe that was suitable. These ribs are raved about by family and friends - they're the best I've ever had! I serve them with potato salad and rolls.
- 3 racks of baby-back pork ribs, each rack cut in half (about one pound each)
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1⁄4 cup cider vinegar
- 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon liquid smoke
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- Put ribs in a large pot with water to cover.
- Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 1 hour or until meat becomes fork-tender.
- Meanwhile mix remaining ingredients in a medium saucepan.
- Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered, stirring often, 30 minutes or until slightly thickened.
- Heat broiler.
- Line broiler pan with foil for easy cleanup.
- Place ribs, meat side down, on broiler-pan rack, brush with ½ the sauce and broil 4 – 5 inches from heat source for 6 – 7 minutes.
- Turn ribs over, brush with remaining sauce and broil 6 – 7 minutes longer or until edges are just slightly charred.
Easy, very tender, and consistently perfect. I will never use another rib recipe or bbq sauce recipe again.
Boiling extracts flavour, roasting or broiling condenses flavour, that's why we make chicken stock with all the leftover chicken we don't eat!
I cant believe anyone finds that boiled ribs are very good ....all the good flavor is now in the water
