Recipe by Chris 5

This is my spin on a rib recipe I found on the web. Easy, falling of the bone tender, and sure to please. What else could you ask for? All ingredients can be altered to your taste!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 lbs baby back ribs (or country ribs)
  • 14 onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 -2 garlic clove, coarsely chopped
  • 2 (18 ounce) bottles barbecue sauce (I love Sweet Baby Rays)
  • 12 ounces of any beer (may omit)
  • water, to cover ribs


  1. Cut your ribs to fit the largest pot you have.
  2. Add onion, garlic, one bottle of BBQ sauce, and beer, if using. Add water to cover. Mix.
  3. Bring uncovered to boil, lower heat and simmer for at least 45 min to an hour. Remove ribs to a platter and let cool slightly. Slather generously with your remaining bottle of BBQ sauce, saving some for basting while grilling.
  4. (At this point, you can either fire up the grill, or put the ribs away until you are ready to grill them. I often make these in the morning, and grill them in a flash for dinner.).
  5. Preheat your charcoal or gas grill, and throw the ribs on (bone side down first) for about 10 min per side, basting with remaining BBQ sauce often. Watch so they don't burn.
  6. Serve with your favorite BBQ sides. Enjoy!
