Pork ribs are a perennial dinner favorite, though they can often be a tad difficult and time consuming to make. However, if you are really in the mood for some ribs, then you will love this simple alternative. All you need to do is follow this recipe for some easy country ribs, and you will soon be enjoying a fantastic tasting meal that will leave you satisfied, and still wanting more. Frankly, who can ever have enough when it comes to ribs?

Ingredients:

  • 2-1/2 pounds of pork spareribs
  • 2 18 ounce bottles of barbeque sauce (your choice on type)
  • 1 large quartered onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Recipe:

  1. Force marinate the meat. Marinating meat can dramatically enhance the taste of just about any type of meat, and pork spare ribs are no different. Usually, marinating will involve leaving meat in a container of some sort, and letting it sit over night. Force marinating is similar, but you are also adding the element of heat to your efforts. Place the barbeque sauce, onion, salt, pepper, and spareribs into a large stockpot and then add enough water to cover everything. Bring everything to a rolling boil, and then reduce to a simmer.
  2. Boil and preheat. Allow the spareribs to remain in the stock pot for at least forty minutes, but no longer than one hour. While the meat is marinating in the stockpot, don't forget to periodically check to make sure that the barbecue mixture doesn't evaporate away. If you notice that the fluid level is getting too low, add a little more hot water to the mix. About 15 minutes before you finish marinating the meat, preheat your grill on a high heat setting.
  3. 3. Oil and grill. Using a silicone basting brush, lightly oil the grate of your barbeque grill. You can use any type of oil that you wish, but olive oil is suggested. Remove the marinated ribs from the stockpot, and place them on the grill. Use your basting brush, and periodically baste the ribs with the barbeque sauce that was in the stockpot. Continue to baste and grill the ribs (being sure that you turn them frequently) for about twenty minutes. You will know that they are finished when the ribs have reached a nice brown color.
  4. Serve and enjoy. As the ribs are completed grilling, remove them from the barbeque, and place them on a serving platter. Once you have removed all the ribs, take them to your dining table, and dig in!
