My good friend shared this recipe of her Grandmother's with me. I am really picky about my bbq sauce... I'll never worry again now that I have this recipe. The ribs are so tender they fall apart and the sauce is just... ohhh... I can't wait for dinner tonight! I hope you all enjoy. Thanks Bridget!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 450F degrees.
  2. Place ribs on a wire rack in oven for 20 minutes.
  3. While ribs are cooking in the oven, combine all other ingredients in large sauce pan and bring to a boil. Cover and let simmer.
  4. Flip ribs and cook for additional 20 minutes.
  5. Turn oven temp down to 350F degrees. Pour 1/3-1/2 of sauce over ribs. Cover pork with foil and cook for an additional 2 hours.
  6. Check to see if you can cut with a fork. If you can then they are done!
  7. Serve ribs with leftover sauce. Best if served with fresh, warm, homemade dinner rolls.

Excellent! I only had 2 lbs of pork rib, so I reduced the final cook time by 1/2 hour. Maybe that's why it was a little dry in the middle. The rest was outstanding, and the sauce was delicious. Just the right amount of zing!
