Grilled Ribs

Grilled ribs by wendy ingorvaiaRibs are indeed one of the great cornerstones of barbecue.  Everybody talks about slow-cooked ribs that you put in a smoker for hours on end, but making good barbecue doesn’t have to be that big of a chore.  I recently found a recipe for ribs that takes just 30 minutes, and gives your ribs all the flavor they need.  


4 pounds baby back pork ribs

1 ⅔ cup water

⅓ cup red wine vinegar

½ cup cider vinegar

1 cup ketchup

⅓ cup Worcestershire sauce

¼ cup prepared mustard

4 tablespoons butter

½ cup packed brown sugar

1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

⅛ teaspoon salt


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and place the ribs in two 10×15 inch roasting pans

Stir water and red wine vinegar into a bowl, then pour it over the ribs and cover them with foil

Bake the ribs in the oven for 45 minutes, basting them with their juices halfway through cooking

In a medium saucepan, mix together the ketchup, water, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, butter, brown sugar, hot pepper sauce and salt, then bring to a boil before reducing heat to low and letting simmer for 1 hour

Preheat grill for medium heat

Lightly oil preheated grill, then place the ribs on the grill

Grill ribs over medium heat for 8 minutes, then baste them with barbecue sauce

Turn ribs over, baste again with barbecue sauce and grill for 8 more minutes
