Ribs are one of our favorite dinners to eat all year round.
I usually make our ribs on the BBQ grill outside. Now that the weather is getting cooler and I don't really want to be heading outside, I decided to make this batch inside.
I bought 3-4 pounds of ribs, coated them with sauce and prepared to let them cook for a few hours.
They turned out delicious!
The meat was tender and falling off of the bone.
I used my homemade BBQ sauce but you can easily choose your favorite brand.
Recipe: Slow Oven Baked Ribs
3-4 pounds of pork ribs
1-2 cups of BBQ sauce (recipe below)
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Toss ribs and sauce together.
Place in a baking pan, cover with foil.
Allow ribs to cook for 3 to 4 hours.
If you would like to have a "grilled" look, then uncover ribs and broil for a few minutes, turn and broil again on the other side. I personally like the bit of charred flavor that is added to the ribs by broiling them for a few minutes.
Brush with more BBQ sauce or eat them as is.
Recipe: Homemade BBQ Sauce
Makes 3 cups of sauce, after simmering for an hour
1.5 cups of ketchup
1/2 cup of tomato sauce
1 cup of red wine vinegar
1/4 cup of Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup of soy sauce
1/4 cup of honey
1/4 cup of packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons mustard powder
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 cloves of minced garlic
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons hot sauce
1/8-1/4 teaspoon of liquid smoke (start with less and add more based on your taste)
Combine all of the above ingredients into a medium size pot. Turn heat to medium high and bring sauce to almost a boil, bubbles around edges. Reduce heat to medium low and let simmer for an hour, stirring occasionally.
You will start to notice your sauce getting deeper in color, thicker and reducing. This is what you want.
Sauce is good up to 2 weeks.
