  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Place the ribs in a large stock pot with enough water to cover. Bring the water to a boil and cook over medium-high heat for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. In medium saucepan, combine ketchup, barbeque sauce, brown sugar, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper sauce, steak sauce and garlic; blend well. Cook the sauce over medium heat for approximately 20 minutes. (Please note that the above ingredients are all to taste. Use more or less of anything you like. I never make the ribs the same way twice!)
  4. Cut the ribs between the bones and place in a baking pan. Pour sauce over ribs, cover and cook for 30 minutes. Remove foil and continue cooking for an additional 30 minutes.


  • Easy Cleanup
  • If you make this in a slow cooker, using a slow cooker liner can make cleanup easier.

I made this with country style boneless ribs. I put them in the crockpot ontop of a layer of vidiala onions. When they were done I transfered them to a baking pan and spread "The Sauce" on both ...

These are by far the very best ribs I have ever made. The meat falls right off the bone. And the sauce is to die for. I plan on using this sauce for different meats also. I had someof the sa...

This was a hit with my family. I had bought a cheaper cut of spare ribs that were ok, next time I'll spend the extra for a better cut and it'll be great. Lots of sauce, I saved it and will use...

Really good ribs with a tangy/sweet sauce. Makes more than enough sauce. Could probably cut sauce recipe in half. I always add a beer to the water when boiling ribs. Gives it a little extra flav...

This is a keeper recipe! I ran short of ketchup and made it up with BBQ sauce, but it came out fine. We used Sonny's Mild BBQ sauce for a sweet sauce, but the pork came out like Carolina BBQ - t...

This is a great base recipe, but it needs to be changed to suit your taste. I made as stated and it was very good but we thought it had a little too much ketchup. Will make again and experimen...

I disagree with the reviewer who said that bottled sauce would be better. This sauce was super! I added finely chopped onion and bottled chili sauce and soy sauce to taste. It was excellent! I a...
