Spareribs for Supper

Tonight's pork sparerib supper is my favorite! It's messy, takes hours to cook (if you're doing it right, IMO), but oh so delicious. And, I can throw in some potatoes for baking while it cooks!

My favorite sparerib recipe is based off a Taste of Home recipe, with some kid-friendly adaptations:
  • 4 pounds pork spareribs
  • 1 bottle (28 ounces) barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon liquid smoke
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 to 1-1/2 tablespoons molasses
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons honey
  1. Boil ribs in water for 10 minutes. 
  2. Cool just enough to be able to pick them up. Then, cut into serving size portions and place ribs in an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.  
  3. Combine the barbecue sauce, onion salt, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, molasses, and honey. Pour sauce over ribs.
  4. Bake, covered, for 1 hour at 350 degrees.
  5. Bake, uncovered, for 30-45 minutes or until ribs are tender and sauce is thickened, turning ribs several times to coat with sauce. 
How do you make YOUR ribs?
