Quite often for my birthday I will request that my mom make ribs for me as I especially like how they taste. I have decided to share her sauce recipe with you for this blog. I made these recently and they turned out so well. Now that I have the recipe I am going to make them more often! The trick to having tender ribs is to first boil them in water for about 30-40 minutes. While that is happening, mix up the sauce I am about to provide you with pour over the ribs and throw them in the oven to bake, or put them on the grill. I used baby back pork ribs. Here is the recipe for the sauce:
1 cup of ketchup (could mix half and half with bbq sauce of your choice)
1 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup boiling water
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
Mix ingredients together, pour over the ribs and bake for one hour at 375 degrees F.
Hope you enjoy the ribs as much as I do!
Interesting Tidbit: BBQ seems to have originated in the Caribbean where the Spanish discovered 'barbacoa', which referred to the method of slow-cooking meat over a wooden platform. The 19th century is when it became established in the American South with pigs being the primary meat. BBQ varies by region in the U.S. (Memphis, North Carolina, Kansas City, Texas) and by country (Korea, Argentina, Mongolia). http://content.time.com/time/nation/article/
