Country Ribs and Barbecue Sauce

Thick, rich barbecue sauce adds a homemade taste to any grilled meat. These ribs are precooked to shorten grilling time.


6 servings (3 cups sauce)

Sauce Ingredients

1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup (1 medium) chopped onion
1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 (28 ounce) bottle ketchup
1 (6 ounce) jar prepared mustard
2 tablespoons vinegar
1/2 teaspoon chili powder

Rib Ingredients

6 pounds country-style pork ribs
6 cups water


Combine all sauce ingredients in 3-quart saucepan. Cover; cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until sauce comes to a full boil (10 to 15 minutes). Reduce heat to low. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until sauce is thickened and flavors are blended (1 to 1 1/2 hours). Strain sauce, if desired.

Meanwhile, place ribs in 4-quart saucepan; add water. Cover; cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until water comes to a full boil (25 to 30 minutes). Reduce heat to low. Cook until ribs are fork tender (30 to 35 minutes). Drain; pat dry.

Heat 1 side of gas grill on medium or charcoal grill until coals are ash white. Place coals to 1 side in charcoal grill. Make aluminum foil drip pan; place opposite coals.

Place ribs onto grill over drip pan. Grill, turning occasionally and brushing with sauce, until desired doneness (25 to 30 minutes). Serve with additional warm sauce.
