Today's Recipe: BBQ Ribs

Submitted by: Angie K.

Around my house, we love to have cold for picnics and hot at barbeques/brais. I know to always make extra when I prepare my ribs, because my neighbors conveniently pop in as soon as the ribs hit the grill.


3 lbs. of ribs (beef or pork)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp. olive oil
12 oz. chili sauce
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup dark rum (optional)
3 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp. worchestershire sauce


Simmer the ribs in a pot of water for 40 minutes. Drain and set aside. Saute the onion and garlic in the oil until the onions are transparent. Stir in the rest of the ingredients. Simmer for 25 minutes. Pour the sauce over ribs. Cover and marinate overnight in refirgerator. Bake for 1-1/4 hours on the grill; basting every 20 minutes. Excellent served with corn on the cob and salt potatoes.

Note: I actually double the recipe for the BBQ sauce so that there is plenty to pour over the ribs when they are ready to eat.
