  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Spread flour into a shallow dish. Dredge ribs in flour to coat.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook ribs in hot oil until completely browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove ribs to a casserole dish.
  4. Melt butter in the hot skillet. Cook and stir onion in melted butter until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir ketchup, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, mustard, and salt with the onion until you have a smooth sauce. Pour water into the sauce; cook and stir until hot. Pour sauce over the ribs. Cover dish with aluminum foil.
  5. Cook in preheated oven, spooning sauce over meat several times during baking, for 90 minutes. Turn ribs and continue cooking and basting with sauce until the meat is completely tender, about 90 minutes more.

Delicious! I used the ingredients exactly as written, but after I browned the ribs and made the sauce, I put everything in my crock pot. Cooked on high for about an hour and then low for another 2-3. Came out great. Served over rice.

Very tasty.. but I don't think I'll put that much water that is called for because the sauce was so very runny. I only used 1 tablespoon of the dry mustard but otherwise followed the recipe. I'll try it again.

DELICIOUS! Made everything exactly as written (doubled it), but put it all in a slow cooker and cooked on low. My ribs were smallish, so I checked them after 5 hours and they were done to perfection! The family loved these...great flavor and came out very moist and tender. I will def be making these again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

I followed the directions as written but considering the comments of an overly watery sauce, I added 1T of flour to the partially cooked onions and reduced water to 3/4 cup. The sauce turned out perfectly. The entire dish had a mellow flavor.

Leary because I am not a huge pork lover, my entire family LOVED this and were clamoring for more. This recipe is a keeper!!

I made the sauce exactly as the recipe stated. The ribs came out so tender they were falling off the bone but the taste could have been better. The sauce was too watery too so next time, I'm upping the amount of vinegar, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce and lowering the amount of water a bit. I think it's a very good starter recipe for ribs and just needs a little tweaking.

This was really good. I made the sauce without the worcestershire sauce as I didn't have any. I added some chili garlic sauce to add some kick. It came out terrific! I will make this again. Thanks for sharing!
