Jessie & Lynn's BBQ Spareribs
Pre-cook 2 lbs of spareribs in the microwave. Stop the microwave several times to rotate the ribs. Make sure all of the ribs have gone from pink to beige. Drain off fat.
Make Sauce by combining the following in a saucepan:
½ cup light molasses
½ cup ketchup
½ onion finely chopped
1 large clove garlic minced
4 narrow slices of orange (peel & flesh), diced, or 1 T. orange zest
Juice of one orange – about ½ cup if using regular orange juice
4 whole cloves
1 teaspoon mustard
1 tablespoon oil
1 tablespoon vinegar
salt & pepper to taste
1 tablespoon A-1 Sauce
1 teaspoon Worchestershire Sauce
¼+ teaspoon Tobasco Sauce
1 tablespoon butter
Bring to a boil, stirring occassionally. Boil for 5 minutes
Pour sauce over ribs and bake uncovered at 400 degrees [almost 200 C ] for 45 or more minutes basting 2-3 times, every 15-20 minutes. Sauce should thicken and begin to carmelize. I usually cook them an hour and baste every 20 minutes.
Enjoy the ribs. They are killer!
