Country Style
Barbecued Spareribs 

We hear that comment about this being "the best barbecue ribs recipe we've ever tasted" a lot. It's a close adaptation of the barbecue spareribs recipe of O.B.'s Board, a little used-to-be restaurant in the quaint mountain town of Truckee, CA.

This is a terrific barbecue sauce recipe for ribs and any other meat or seafood. Spicy, sweet, and tangy all at once, it's our favorite all-around barbecue sauce. Enjoy!

O.B.'s Barbecue Sauce Recipe for Ribs

1 tablespoon butter
1-2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 cup catsup
1/3 cup chili sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons minced onions
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon mustard
1 teaspoon celery seed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon hot sauce
3 slices lemon

Combine all the barbecue sauce ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a low boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes.

Season the ribs lightly with salt and pepper.

Place the ribs on a preheated barbecue grill or under the broiler and cook over/under medium heat until cooked through, about 20 to 30 minutes. Baste with the barbecue sauce during the last 10 minutes of cooking.

Oven Cooked Ribs 

4 pounds country style ribs, beef or pork
Water to cover 

Simmer the ribs in salted water for about 20 minutes. This step speeds up the cooking time but more importantly, it releases a lot of the grease so your oven cooked ribs are not standing in it when done.

After simmering and draining the ribs, place them in a shallow baking dish and bake at 350° for 20 to 40 minutes. Baste often with barbecue sauce.
