Easy and Delicious Ribs

I love ribs.  I am always thrilled to have them when someone else is cooking them.  I have never made them myself and was pleasantly surprised, when visiting my Sister recently, that she offered to make some for dinner one night.  She baked them in the oven, and shared her method and sauce recipe with me.

She put about 1-1/2 pounds of pork rib ends in a roasting dish, and roasted them for 2 hours at 325°F.  Then she poured off the juice that had formed in the pan, and smothered the ribs with her Barbecue Sauce.  Then she put the ribs back into the oven for another hour to finish cooking.

Mmmm...  you really have to try this.  So easy and so delicious.

Barbecue Sauce
Makes about 1-1/2 cups
  • 2 Tbs instant coffee
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 2 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup granular Splenda
  1. Dissolve instant coffee in the warm water, then mix with the other ingredients.
Per 1/4 cup serving, sauce only.

This sauce can also be used if you prefer to grill your ribs. Just paint it on the top of the ribs when placing them on the grill rack, and again after you flip them over.

It can be made up ahead of time and stored in the fridge to be used when you need it.... It is very versatile and great with beef, pork or even poultry.

If you use a non-stick spray in the pan, the cleanup is extremely easy... the lower oven temperature prevents the sauce from burning.
