This is an easy recipe to make BBQ ribs that are absolutely delicious, tender, juicy and sticky. These are Paratrooper Man’s favorite dish for a barbeque party. Best of all, you can make the ribs in advance. Then, when the guests arrive, all you gotta do is grill them. Everyone will think you have slaved away over a hot BBQ grill all day long. Except you didn't. Only you will know the secret. It's so easy. Works for me!
Put on that apron! Gather up the following ingredients:
5 lbs pork or beef spareribs, sliced apart 1/4 cup butter 1 medium onion, diced 1 tbsp minced garlic Approx 1/2 can of your favorite beer Approx 3/4 cup ketchup Approx 1/4 cup mustard Approx 1 cup barbecue sauce, any flavor Salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper & dry mustard to taste Brown sugar or honey to taste
Put the ribs in a large pot. Throw some salted water in there and bring it all to a boil. Turn down the heat and simmer on low for about an hour or so. You want to cook it until the meat is tender, but not quite falling off the bone yet.
Stick the butter, onion and garlic in a pan. Saute together and then throw in all the other ingredients to make your BBQ sauce. Just bring it to a boil and then remove it from the heat. You can puree it if you want a really smooth BBQ sauce, but we’re kinda lazy and we like a chunky sauce with lots of delicious onion and garlic bits. Now, stick the ribs in a shallow pan and dump all the sauce over them. Pop the ribs in the refrigerator for a few hours to marinate.
When dinnertime rolls around, simply barbecue the ribs on the grill over medium to hot coals. Slather on lots of BBQ sauce. Flip them over every now and then to cook evenly. Remember, the ribs are already cooked. You are just grilling them to warm them back up. Also, you're adding extra flavor with the grilling process and more BBQ sauce. Here's another easy tip. Once the ribs are grilled, you can put them in a large covered pot. Pour any leftover BBQ sauce and some beer over the ribs. Then place over a warm spot on the grill. This will keep the BBQ ribs warm and moist.
Tastes best on a hot summer day. Sitting in your backyard or poolside. In a lawn chair. In your swim suit. Eating off a paper plate. Serve with corn on the cob, baked beans & pasta salad. Generously wash it down with glasses of sweet tea. Enjoy! Just be sure to have lots of napkins on standby!
