This recipe was put out by a local charity in their cookbook and published in our local newspaper back in 2006. It's still an easy recipe! :) This is one of those recipes you could marinate and cook the first three hours on Sunday afternoon while you snooze for your nap and bake the last half hour on Monday when you get home from work. Or better yet, marinate on Saturday, cook extra on Sunday, warm it up in the oven on Monday and an extra day of the work week. Yeah, now we're talking!
Oven Barbecued Ribs
From: "The View From Our Kitchen" by the Baton Rouge Eye Bank Auxiliary
Serves: 6 to 8
3 or 4 spans of baby back ribs
Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce
Meat tenderizer, unseasoned
garlic powder (not garlic salt)
Tony Chachere's Original (Cajun) Seasoning
1 stick butter or margarine, melted
1/2 onion, chopped
2 ribs celery, chopped
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 (36 ounce) bottle ketchup
1 Tablespoon Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
5 dashes Tabasco sauce
1. Using a brush, coat the meaty sides of the ribs with Worcestershire and Kitchen Bouquet. After coating, liberally sprinkle with meat tenderizer, garlic powder, Tony's Seasoning and black pepper.
2. Cover tightly and store in refrigerator until ready to cook. This can be done a day or two in advance of cooking.
3. To make sauce, saute onion and celery in melted butter until soft. Add brown sugar and stir until blended. Add ketchup, Lea & Perrins, garlic and Tabasco and stir well.
4. Cook on medium heat until bubbly, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to low, cover pot and cook for 2 hours stirring frequently. Sauce will thicken and turn darker. It may be stored in airtight container in refrigerator for a couple of weeks.
5. When ready to cook, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Using a pan/pans with a rack, cook marinated ribs, covered for 2 hours. After 2 hours, remove from oven, drain juice and remove rack/racks.
6. Liberally brush on barbecue sauce, cover and lower heat to 300 degrees F. Cook for 1 more hour. Turn oven off, uncover ribs and allow to sit in the warm oven for 30 minutes before serving. Serve with warm barbecue sauce to spoon over the ribs if desired.
