This is a recipe I got from my mom, who got it from her good friend Joan. Joan is an amazing cook, and everything I have ever tried of hers has been delicious. I'm not surprised that this recipe was no different. It is fabulous. I will warn you that it isn't a quick meal since it does require over 2 hrs of cooking and you have to be available every 15 minutes. However, it is perfect for a relaxing Saturday evening and is quite easy.
BBQ Country Style Ribs
From: Joan DeWilde
Country Style Ribs
1 small bottle of Open Pitt original BBQ Sauce
1/4 c. molasses
2 Tbsp liquid smoke (optional)
water to cover ribs
1. Place ribs in large pot, cover with water and simmer on top of the stove for 45 minutes.
2. Near the end of the 45 minutes, prepare sauce by mixing together BBQ sauce, molasses, and liquid smoke. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
3. When ribs are done simmering, place ribs in large baking pan and reserve cooking water. Add 1/2 - 3/4 cup of the water to the BBQ sauce mixture. Keep the rest of the water in case more is needed as the ribs bake.
5. Pour bbq sauce mixture over ribs in baking pan.
6. Bake for 1 1/2 hrs at 350 degrees. Baste every 15 minutes. Turn each piece when basting if desired. If sauce gets too thick add additional cooking water while basting.
