Moist and Tender Ribs

My mother-in-law emailed me today with a delicious new recipe for ribs. It's a twist on the old faithful that we make in the family, but the ribs come out even more tender and the meat just falls off the bone and melts in your mouth.

1 rack pork side ribs
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons corn syrup
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon adobo sauce

1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon chili powder

  • Put the ribs into a pot and cover it with hot water. Add 1 tablespoon of garlic and 1 tablespoon of chili powder. Cover the pot and bring the water to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat and allow the ribs to simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Mix all other ingredients in a bowl to make the barbeque sauce.
  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
  • Once the ribs have simmered, remove them from the pot and place on a large piece of aluminum foil. Cover both sides of the ribs with the barbeque sauce and wrap it fully in the foil.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 1.5 hours.
We had ours with whole wheat baguette and herbed butter. Yum!
