Saucy Barbecued Spareribs Recipe

Everyone who has tasted these ribs has asked for the recipe. It's a family recipe handed down from my mother-in-law.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 1 hour 40 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 1-1/2 to 2 pounds pork spareribs
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon steak sauce
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • 3 whole cloves
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped orange peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce


  • 1. Cut ribs into serving size pieces. Line a 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish with foil; grease the foil. Place ribs meat side up in prepared pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 hour; drain.
