Tonight was the first time I made barbecued pork ribs and they came out delicious and "blog-worthy"! I have made similar recipe using pork loin before but this time I tried cooking ribs. The key is a good barbecue sauce. I have been using Bone Suckin' Sauce for several years now. It is just amazing! You can buy it in most grocery stores like Whole Foods, QFC, PCC Natural Markets. The advice is to take time with cooking pork.
About 1 or 1 ½ lbs rack of pork ribs
1 jar of Bone Suckin’ Sauce (16 oz)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Cajun Spice (Optional)
Preheat oven to 325F. Cut a rack of pork ribs in half, wash with cold water and pat dry with a paper towel. Next, rub both sides of pork ribs with salt, pepper and cajun spice.
Put ribs in an ovenproof glass dish and add about 2/3 of an inch of cold water, cover with aluminum foil and put into the oven to cook for 3 hours. After 3 hours, take ribs out of the oven. They should be cooked through and very tender.
Carefully transfer ribs into Le Creuset Dutch Oven.
Next step is to pour Bone Suckin’ Sauce on the ribs, close with the lid and let ribs cook on a stove on medium-low (more on a low side) for another 1 ½ hours.
Sometime in the first 30 minutes the sauce will start boiling slowly, make sure that sauce does not burn.
After 1 or 1 ½ hours take ribs out of the dutch oven and enjoy!!!! Tonight I had ribs with roasted fingerling potatoes and steamed brocollini. Here is a picture of the complete dinner.
And here is a picture while eating the ribs. The meat was just falling of the bones and the sauce is so delicious!
