Sweet and Sour Sauce over Baby Back Ribs

You’ll find many barbecue sauces in stores, but this homemade recipe

truly hearkens back to the days of home-style cooking. It’s so good you

may never reach for store-bought again!

Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 35-40 minutes Serves 4

Sauce

1 15-ounce bottle ketchup

1 cup light-brown sugar

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

1 teaspoon dry mustard

½ teaspoon garlic powder

¼ teaspoon black pepper

Ribs

2 racks baby back pork ribs, cut into individual ribs, preferably all-natural

To Make Sauce: Combine all sauce ingredients in a medium-size

saucepan. Cook over low-medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring

constantly until thickened. Set the sauce aside.

To Cook Ribs: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Bring a large sauce pot of water

to a rolling boil over high heat. Lower the heat to medium and add the

ribs. Cook for 10 minutes; drain. Arrange the ribs on 2 medium-size

nonstick baking sheets. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove the ribs from the

oven; drain. Brush the sauce liberally over the ribs. Bake for 10 more

minutes. Serve immediately.

Tip: Boiling the ribs helps remove some of the fat. But if you want to skip boiling

them, arrange the ribs on 2 medium-size nonstick baking sheets and bake for 20

minutes. Remove the ribs from the oven; drain. Brush the sauce liberally over the

ribs. Bake for 20 more minutes.

This is bone suckin’ good!
