Try-It-Tuesday

In just a little over a week it will be my husband's birthday. He always requests the same meal for his birthday dinner. Barbecued Spare Ribs and Red Velvet cake. So I thought I'd share the ribs today and maybe the cake next week. (Both I got from my MIL. Jarom always says that the best thing a wife can do is learn to make her husband's most favorite meal his mother cooked.) He almost didn't want me to share this rib recipe because he loves it so much. But my philosophy is that we should always share our best recipes. What fun is it if no one else can enjoy it? So I am begging you, please treat this recipe with respect and share it with your most treasured loved ones. Because they deserve something this good.

Barbecued Spare Ribs (I always double this recipe)

4 good size boneless country style ribs (pork are the best)
1 can tomato soup
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 clove garlic (minced)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 cup vinegar
Brown floured country style ribs in bacon drippings or Crisco oil in a frying pan. Remove ribs and put them in a roasting pan. Mix the remaining ingredients in a bowl and then pour over the browned ribs. Bake covered at 300 for 3 hours. Remove lid and bake an additional 30 minutes.


This a sweet, delicious bbq and works well on chicken too. I like to shred up the left overs and have a rib sandwich for lunch the next day.


****If you have a tried and true recipe you'd be willing to share, leave a comment with the recipe title and post the recipe on your blog so we can all come and check it out. Thanks for playing; the more the merrier! ****

I love ribs. But have yet to figure out how to make them. I have tried them in the slow cooker - but they are greasy and gross.

So, here is my stupid question of the day. I know how to brown hamburger. But, how do you brown ribs? Is it just searing the outside, or do you cook them longer?

Where do you get your ribs from? WINCO? I am excited to try these!

elena said...

Kat- You're right, just sear them to add a little crunch to the texture. They get really tender and fall apart. And about the greasy part, make sure you get lean looking ribs. There are some with quite a bit of fat and those do get really greasy.

elena said...

Jewelle- You must have typed at the same time I did. I usually get mine from Albertsons. They seem to have the leanest ones and often times you can get them on sale for buy one get one free deals. I have gotten them from Winco before too though.

I'm not a rib fan, but I ADORE red velvet cake! Very difficult to find here in New England, seems to be a southern thing.

I love ribs, but my husband does not. Guess I could cook him some chicken while I eat these.
Gotta try it.

Sounds wonderful! I do my ribs the same way... almost... I bake them covered (in a roasting bag) 3hrs at 300, but I marinate them first for a few hours in italian dressing and then rub them down with Montreal Steak seasoning. After they bake for 3 hours I add the bbq sauce (I'm not as good as you though... I get mine already made up,lol) and slather them up and put them back in the oven uncovered for 30 minutes... YUM!!! Now I'm hungry! I'm going to try your recipe for sauce the next time I make them. Thanks for sharing! :)
