Awesome Ribs for Pork or Beef

Recipe by Leggy Peggy
READY IN: 2hrs 30mins




  • Cut ribs into individual ribs, and place all the pieces in large roasting pan.
  • Scatter the thickly sliced onions over the ribs.
  • Sprinkle lemon juice over the ribs.
  • Bake for one hour in an oven that has been pre-heated to 350 degrees.
  • Pour off ALL the fat and juice that has accumulated.
  • In the meantime, make the sauce.
  • To make the sauce, combine the last five ingredients in a saucepan, and cook (boil) for 20-25 minutes. Stir frequently. You want the sauce to cook down and thicken up.
  • Dip cooked ribs into the sauce, and place in roasting pan. It's best if you make a single layer of ribs at this stage so, if necessary, use more than one pan.
  • Dip cooked onions into sauce, and scatter over ribs.
  • At this stage, you can refrigerate the concoction (covered with cling wrap) for a day or two -- so the flavours can really meld.
  • Cook ribs a second time—for 30-60 minutes—in an oven that has been pre-heated to 325°F If you have refrigerated the concoction, take out of the fridge at least two hours before the second cooking. Thanks to Heystopthatnow for alerting me to the fact that I had omitted a cooking time for this step.
  • Before the second cooking, baste the ribs. Then baste them again every 10 minutes. You want the ribs to be saucy.
  • Serve with corn cobs, baked potatoes and salad. Garlic bread is nice, too.
