Ingredients:

  • 2-1/2 - 3 lbs. pork side ribs
  • 2 - 3 cloves garlic chopped (to taste)
  • 2 - 3 small cooking onions chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • BBQ sauce of your choice

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Cut pork side into ribs. Usually 2 ribs per piece. Place ribs in a pot and cover with cold water and bring to a boil.

Reduce to simmer and allow to cook for approx. 1/2 hour. Drain and place ribs in a long and flat glass dish.

Place onions and garlic over ribs and sprinkle gently with salt (or eliminate salt if using heavily spiced BBQ sauce). Completely cover all ribs with sauce of your choice.

Bake uncovered for at least 1 hour. This can be ignored in the oven for much longer if you are not home if the temperature is reduced to 300 degrees F. The longer the meat cooks the more tender it will be.

Note: I prefer a honey-garlic or a smoked BBQ sauce for this dish. Serve with mashed potatoes and broccoli or green beans for added colour.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 1 cup orange marmalade
  • 2 Tbsp. tomato paste
  • 2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 2 T. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 medium onion, minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 slabs lean spareribs (around 3 1/2 lbs.)

Directions

In a medium saucepan, bring the ketchup, orange marmalade, tomato paste, mustard, WSS, onion, and garlic to a boil over medium-low heat and simmer, partially covered for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Place the spareribs, meaty-side up, on the prepared baking sheet. Brush the spareribs with one-third of the bbq sauce and bake for 20 minutes. Turn the spareribs over, coat with half the remaining BBQ sauce, and bake for another 20 minutes. Turn the spareribs meaty-side up again, coat with the remaining bbq sauce, and bake for 20 minutes.

Ad

Cut the spareribs into serving pieces and serve hot or cold.

My boys go wild for this! It's especially handy to make ahead and serve during the busy season, either as a meat entree for dinner, or as an appetizer in the evening.

If anyone has a recipe for barbecued spareribs, I would love to have it. If it isn't too much trouble can you tell me all steps involved, as I am not very experienced with chicken or ribs. I usually just cooks burgers and hot dogs. Thanks a lot for any advice and recipes!

PJ,
I found this to be very easy and the ribs are nice and tender. Put the ribs in the oven on about 400 for 1/2 hr. uncovered. After the 1/2 hour I than cover with foil and bring the temp. down to 250 for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Than you can either do one of the following. I use Sweet Baby Rays Sauce or whatever you prefer pour on and leave uncovered for about 1/2 hr. OR I put them in the fridge for the next day for grilling. Piece of foil on the grill with holes for venting purposes. Pour some sauce on them and let them heat up for about 20 mins or until them seem hot. You are ready and they are nice and tender falling right off the bone. Hope this works for you as well as it does for me. Good Luck.

My favorite way to do chicken on the grill is to marinate it in Italian salad dressing for a couple of hours (or overnight) before putting on the grill. If I'm doing bone-in, I usually boil the chicken first, then marinate it before grilling. For ribs, I marinate in the following:
2/3 c. salad oil
1/2 c. vinegar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. parsley (or Italian seasoning)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbs. minced onion
1 Tbs. lemon juice
This marinade makes the ribs very tender and tasty. Enjoy!

You can also go to foodnetwork.com and get lots of recipes and ideas there. My husband and son use that site a lot. Emeril has a great rub you put on first (set overnight) and then a bbq sauce during smoking/grilling. They are very good. Type in spare ribs and the one for smoked bbq ribs is the one we have tried.

Different parts of the country use different methods for barbecue, but to me the smoke is the thing. I usually use a marinade based on vinegar, mustard, peppers and garlic, with anything else that sounds good at the time. If you don't have time to marinate it just add a can (or more, depending on how much you're making) of beer to the mix and parboil the meat very briefly. Then slow-grill using your choice of flavor wood. I prefer hickory for pork, but sometimes use various combinations of fruitwoods. I avoid mesquite on pork; it's great for beef and okay for chicken but IMO it just doesn't work on pork.

I have used Coke, Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, Faygo Rock n Rye. I have also used the diet versions of all these and it made no difference. I usually soak my ribs for several hours in a mix of the pop, chopped garlic, salt, freshly ground pepper and whatever else I feel like. Then I grill the ribs. I mix premade BBQ sauce with the marinating liquid (1/4 marinade to 3/4 BBQ sauce) and baste. To serve I boil some of the remaining pop and mix with more BBQ sauce. My husband and I love Emeril's Kicked Up BBQ, Sweet Baby Ray's and Sticky Fingers.
