This one is for your basketball playoffs menu! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this rib sauce. It is delicious and very forgiving. When I have more than 2lbs of ribs, I just add more catsup (the 36 oz bottle instead of the 24 oz) and it still turns out great. I’ve made these ribs for company several times now, and everyone always gobbles them up. It is also great on chicken. Thanks to Ruth Gough for this recipe.
Barbecue Homestyle Ribs
Submitted by Mindy ~ The Sisters Cafe
2 lbs country style pork ribs, bone-in or boneless
1 large bottle of catsup
1 cup brown sugar
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
3 T. White Vinegar
3-5 drops liquid smoke
**To use sauce with chicken, add 1/2 cup cooking oil.
Combine catsup, oil (if using chicken), sugar, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, and liquid smoke – mix well. Set aside. Warm a small amount of oil in a frying pan and heat over medium-high. Brown the outsides of the meat on all sides and salt and pepper to your liking. You can add garlic or other seasonings you like here to spice things up. Place the meat in a covered cooking pan (a 9×13 covered with foil works fine), pour the sauce over the meat and cover well. Bake at 375 for 1 to 1 1/2 hours — more time, more tender. Serve warm. Ladle sauce over the served meat.
