Total Time

Prep: 10 min. Bake: 1-3/4 hours

We raised hogs on our farm when I was a child. This recipe was a favorite then...and it still is today.


  • 4 pounds spareribs, cut into serving-size pieces
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 medium onions, sliced
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. Place the ribs in a shallow roasting pan; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top with onions. Cover and bake at 350° for 30 minutes; drain. Combine remaining ingredients; mix well. Pour over ribs. Cover and bake for 1 hour. Uncover and bake 15 minutes longer.
