I'm not really a pork person but these tender sweet and sour BBQ ribs I will eat gladly. The meat on the bone sure falls apart easily! It is perfectly smothered in tangy sauce and wow, it smells wonderful, too. The smell alone will make your mouth water. It is perfectly sweet and sour and it goes great with white steamed rice.
Tangy Baby Back Ribs
1 rack bone-in baby back pork ribs
Paprika and brown sugar to season the pork ribs
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup BBQ sauce (We used Cattlemen's)
3 garlic, minced
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons white vinegar
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
Hot cooked rice
Place ribs on a rack in a a shallow roasting pan. Season the ribs with paprika and brown sugar (use however much is needed to lightly cover the ribs). Cover and bake at 325 degrees F for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, add oil and garlic and saute until garlic starts to brown. Add the BBQ sauce, water, lemon juice, brown sugar, vinegar, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered for 5 minutes or until slightly thickened.
Drain ribs; Cut the ribs between each bone. Brush with some of the sauce. Bake, uncovered, about 1 hour. Pour rest of the sauce over the ribs and cook for about 10-15 more minutes until the meat is cooked through.
Serve with rice.
