My Most Tender BBQ Ribs with Sweet & Sassy BBQ Sauce

Here is a great summertime recipe that my family just loves. It takes a while to cook the ribs but the prep time is minimal. It is easy to do when you are at home for a lazy Sunday afternoon!

2 slabs of pork baby back ribs
Lemon pepper

Places ribs in a large baking pan. Season the ribs on both sides with lemon pepper and parsley. Do not use salt, this close the pores. Add about an inch of water to the pan and cover with aluminum foil. Bake at 350 for 3 hours. Remove ribs from pan and place on grill. Baste with Sweet and Sassy BBQ sauce cooking about 10 minutes on each side. Enjoy!

Sweet & Sassy BBQ Sauce

3 tbsp butter
1 medium onion finely chopped
¼ cup vinegar
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 cup ketchup
3 tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp dried mustard
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
¾ cup water
½ tsp salt
1 tbsp paprika
¼ tsp chili powder
1/8 tsp crushed dried red chili pepper

Melt butter in sauce pan; add onion and sauté until tender. Add remaining ingredients and cook over low hear for 20 minutes stirring occasionally. Do not boil, makes 2 cups. I often double the recipe and freeze half in a Ziploc bag once cooled, saves time next time you make ribs!
