Our family loves ribs. Whether it’s pork, beef, or lamb, it’s all good to us. But, we don’t have a grill. So, oven baked ribs is the way to go! This recipe is adapted from the Oven Baked BBQ Ribs on Allrecipes.com.
Oven Temperature: 350˚F
Baking Time: 3 hours
Makes: 4 pounds ribs
2 cups ketchup
2 cups water
4 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
4 teaspoons dry mustard
4 pounds pork spareribs
In a large bowl, combine onions, ketchup, water, salt, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar and mustard. This is the BBQ sauce.
Split your ribs in half between the bones. Marinate the pork in the BBQ sauce for around 4-6 hours or overnight.
After marinating, preheat your oven to 350˚F.
Heat a large lightly oiled skillet over medium-high heat. Add ribs and sear until browned. (Just cook ribs until brown on the outside. The meat does not have to be cooked all the way) This may have to be done in several batches.
Place ribs in a single layer in two baking pans or casserole dishes (We used one turkey pan that was covered in foil.) Pour half of the sauce over the ribs, reserve remainder.
Bake ribs in preheated oven for 3 hours. Turn and baste the meat every twenty minutes with the remaining sauce, using all the sauce by the two hour mark. Continue turning and basting ribs using the sauce in the pan during the last hour of baking. Enjoy!
