Grandma 'drea's BBQ Pork

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by Misses Wilson

I always loved to come home and smell this in the oven!! You can use ribs, chops or anything really and it's simply mouth watering! The first time I made this I had everything except the tomato paste so I boiled down some V-8, cut back on the amount of water and simmered the whole yummy mess til I got what I was looking for. My mother (now known as Grandma 'Drea) swears this is not an original recipe but that credit is due to Sunset Magazine for first using it as a BBQed beef sandwich/sloppy joe recipe. Either way I now give to you all my favorite recipe of all time...

I made this with ribs. This has the BEST sauce!! Kinda "bar-b-que-y", kinda sweet- DH & DD finally decided it was "awesome sauce". Wonderful! And my ribs did NOT dry out (which I hate!!). I will make this over and over!! Definitely will be served to guests!! Thanks so much- made for Spring PAC,2011.

  4. Add everything else. bring to a simmer for 3-5 mins or until sauce has reached the consistency of a bottled BBQ sauce.
