Pork Spareribs with Delectable Barbecue Sauce

Pork Spareribs with Delectable Barbecue Sauce
Recipe type: Pork Rib
Serves: 8
  • 3 slabs to 4 pork spareribs (about 2 pounds each)
  • Sauce:
  • 1/4 Cup vegetable oil
  • 1 large red onion; chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic; finely chopped
  • 1 Cup tomato puree
  • 4 tomatoes; peeled, chopped
  • 1/2 Cup orange juice
  • 5 Tablespoons vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar (packed)
  • 2 Tablespoons prepared spicy brown mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon molasses
  • 1/2 Tablespoon paprika
  • 1/2 Tablespoon freshly-ground black pepper
  • 1/2 Tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  1. To make the Sauce: In a saucepan or large skillet heat oil. Add onion and garlic and saute 5 minutes or until translucent. Add remaining sauce ingredients. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer uncovered 1 to 2 hours, stirring occasionally. Process in a blender or food processor until smooth. Chill in refrigerator until ready to use or up to 3 weeks.
  2. Place ribs in a jumbo resealable plastic bag. For each slab of ribs, pour 1/2 Cup sauce over ribs; spread to coat. Close bag and marinate in refrigerator overnight. Reserve remaining sauce.
  3. Remove ribs from bag; discard used sauce. Place ribs in center of cooking grate. Grill 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until tender. Brush with some of reserved sauce during last 20 minutes of grilling time.
  4. Cut into 2- or 3-rib portions. Serve with heated remaining sauce.
This recipe yields 8 to 10 servings.

Wine Recommendation: Break the rules with an oaky Chardonnay -- after all, why should the sauce have all the fun? You'll really taste the ribs and the wine will accommodate the orange juice and other tangy ingredients.

Beer Recommendation: Try something different -- a pale Bock -- or a Pilsener with a lengthy hop finish.

Comments: For sumptuous ribs made fast, make the sauce a few days ahead of time. Marinating the ribs in sauce the night before makes them that much more tender.
