BBQ Ribs-Oven Baked


  • 2 cups sliced onions (I used 1/2 cup.)
  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 teaspoons salt (I used 1.)
  • ¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ cup white vinegar
  • ½ cup dark brown sugar
  • 4 teaspoons dry mustard
  • 4 pounds pork spareribs


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • In a large bowl, combine onions, ketchup, water, salt, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, and mustard.
  • Split ribs down the center between the bones.
  • Heat a large lightly oiled skillet over medium-high heat. Add ribs and sear until browned. This may have to be done in several batches.
  • Place ribs in a single layer in two foil-lined baking pans or casserole dishes.
  • Pour half of the sauce over the ribs, reserve remainder.
  • Bake ribs in preheated oven for 3 hours.
  • Turn and baste meat every twenty minutes with remaining sauce, using all sauce by two hours.
  • Continue turning and basting ribs using sauce in the pan during the last hour of baking.
