Country Pork Spare Ribs in a Pot
Country pork spare ribs in a pot is a recipe I use frequently. You can also use baby back or spare ribs but cut the cooking
time to 60 minutes. These ribs come out fork tender and I hope will become a family favorite.
4 lbs Country Pork Ribs bone-in or out
1 cup Onions chopped
1 cup Ketchup
¼ cup Worcestershire
¼ cup White Vinegar
½ cup Brown Sugar
½ teaspoon Dry Mustard
Splash of Tabasco or Hot Sauce
Juice of two lemons
Salt to taste
Pre heat the oven to 350 degrees. Sauté the onions until limp or clear in color, turn off heat and add the remaining ingredients and mix well, re-heat over low to a simmer for
In a large oven proof covered pot, pour in a small amount of sauce layer in ribs, pour in more sauce and repeat with the pork ribs. Place in oven and cook WITHOUT removing the top for 90 minutes.
Remove the meat when done. Add a dozen ice cubes to collect the fat, then replace the meat or serve right away. Serve over real hot steamed rice or mashed potatoes.
Add more onions if you like a strong taste and don’t saute them; taste will be a bit strong. Add more hot sauce if you like hotter style sauces.
