Got It Right Here...
Bring Out The Napkins!
- Meaty beef ribs (allow about 3 ribs per person, depending on appetites)
- Worcestershire sauce
- garlic powder
- seasoned salt
- freshly ground black pepper
- Your favorite barbecue sauce (I like Sweet Baby Ray's Honey Barbecue Sauce--available at grocery stores)
- Preheat the oven to 250º.
- Line the bottom and sides of a baking pan with foil.
- Pat the ribs dry with a paper towel on both sides. Place the ribs in one layer on the foil in the pan.
- Lightly sprinkle the Worcestershire sauce on both sides of the ribs and rub in with the back of a spoon. Lightly sprinkle both sides of the ribs with the garlic powder, seasoned salt and freshly ground black pepper. Place the ribs meaty side up.
- Tightly cover the pan with more foil. Bake at 250º for 4 hours, then remove from the oven. Increase the oven temperature to 350º.
- Carefully (because steam will escape) uncover the ribs. Drain accumulated fat and juices. Brush, or spread with the back of a spoon, your favorite barbecue sauce on the ribs. Return the ribs to the oven and brown, uncovered, for about 1/2 hour.
- In a covered microwave-proof bowl, heat a little extra barbecue sauce briefly (maybe 10 to 15 seconds) on medium high in the microwave.
Serve with your favorite side(s), or how about some asparagus with barbecue butter (see recipe below)! Smack away and enjoy!
Barbecue Butter for AsparagusAs Adapted from Pat and Gina Neely as seen on the Food Network
(I prefer oven-roasted asparagus and The Pioneer Woman's recipe looks good, but the Neelys offer a recipe...see link above...for pan-grilled asparagus if you'd like to try that.)
Use 1 TB of the seasoning for the barbecue butter and store the rest in an airtight container for future use. The seasoning will keep in the pantry for up to six months.
The Barbecue Seasoning:
1 TB sugar
1/4 c. paprika
1/4 tsp. onion powder
The Butter (enough for 2 lbs. asparagus+)
1 stick slightly softened salted butter
1 TB barbecue seasoning
Mix the 1 TB of barbecue seasoning with the slightly softened butter; cover and refrigerate until ready to serve with your asparagus. So unique and perfect with your ribs!
