Oven-Broiled Barbecue Ribs

With the fourth of July holiday behind us, we are definitely in the thick of barbecue season. Although if you ask me, I believe that the season for barbecue lasts all year. If you have a craving for barbecue, but don't feel like firing up the grill (or if you don't have a grill to fire up), here is a super easy recipe that will leave you very satisfied.


4 lbs pork spare ribs
1/2 medium sized onion, sliced
1 cup of your favorite barbecue sauce

1) Fill a large pot about 1/3 full with water. Bring the water to a boil.

2) Cut the spare ribs into portions of 2 to 3 ribs. Place rib portions in the pot along with the onion slices.

3) Cover the pot and reduce heat to simmer. Simmer for 1 hour.

4) Adjust your oven rack so that it is about 4-5 inches from your broiler). Preheat broiler.

5) Place the ribs in a single layer on a foil-lined baking sheet. Brush the tops of the ribs with 1/4 cup of barbecue sauce. Broil for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and brush the tops of the ribs with another 1/4 of barbecue sauce. Broil for 5 minutes.

6) Remove from oven. Turn the ribs over and brush with additional 1/4 cup of barbecue sauce. Broil for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and brush the tops with the remaining 1/4 cup of barbecue sauce.

Makes 4 servings.

I like your version of barbecue ribs because when it's winter like this, it's not really likely to go out for barbecue :-P And I love bbq ribs, so this does it for me! I want to share this to other Foodista readers and guide them to this post. Just add the foodista widget at the end of this post and it's all set. Thanks, keep on posting! :-)
