I've been waiting for this recipe to post so I could review it. I tried it as soon as you entered it in the recipe request thread. We absolutely loved the sauce. I put the racks of ribs in a 275 oven because we were going to be out a little longer than the time called for. When we returned, the ribs were falling off the bone. The sauce is outstanding. Wish I could give this a 10 star.
- 4 racks of baby-back pork ribs
- 1 1⁄2 cups water
- 1 cup white vinegar
- 1⁄2 cup tomato paste
- 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
- 2⁄3 cup dark brown sugar, packed
- 1 teaspoon hickory flavoring liquid smoke
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon paprika
Directions See How It's Made
- Make the barbecue sauce by combining all of the ingredients for the sauce in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
- When it comes to a boil, reduce heat and simmer sauce, stirring often, for 45 to 60 minutes or until sauce is thick.
- When you're ready to make the ribs, preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
- Brush sauce over the entire surface of each rack of ribs.
- Wrap each rack tightly in aluminum foil and arrange the packets on a baking sheet with the seam of the foil facing up.
- Bake for 2 to 2ï¿½ hours or until the meat on the ribs has pulled back from the cut ends of the bones by about ï¿½ inch.
- When the ribs are just about done, preheat your barbecue grill to medium heat.
- Remove the ribs from the foil (careful not to burn yourself- the liquid inside will be hot!) and grill them on the barbecue for 4 to 8 minutes per side or until the surface of the ribs is beginning to char.
- Brush sauce on both sides of the ribs a few minutes before you remove them from the grill.
- Just be sure not to brush on the sauce too soon or it could burn.
- Serve the ribs with extra sauce on the side and lots of napkins.
