  • Ready In

  1. Place the ribs in a large stock pot with enough water to cover. Bring the water to a boil and cook over medium-high heat for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. In medium saucepan, combine ketchup, barbeque sauce, brown sugar, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper sauce, steak sauce and garlic; blend well. Cook the sauce over medium heat for approximately 20 minutes. (Please note that the above ingredients are all to taste. Use more or less of anything you like. I never make the ribs the same way twice!)
  4. Cut the ribs between the bones and place in a baking pan. Pour sauce over ribs, cover and cook for 30 minutes. Remove foil and continue cooking for an additional 30 minutes.

These are by far the very best ribs I have ever made. The meat falls right off the bone. And the sauce is to die for. I plan on using this sauce for different meats also. I had someof the sa...

Really good ribs with a tangy/sweet sauce. Makes more than enough sauce. Could probably cut sauce recipe in half. I always add a beer to the water when boiling ribs. Gives it a little extra flav...
