Ribs With BBQ Sauce In Oven

Ribs With BBQ Sauce In Oven

Made with homemade BBQ sauce, these ribs with bbq sauce in oven are insanely delicious, easy and quick to make. Perfect for weeknight dinner or when having guests over.

At the end of May this year, my family and I traveled to Cuba. During our 2 weeks vacation, our neighbor Barbara was taking care of our garden.

When we returned, I’ve always wanted to make a ,,thank you” dinner for Barbara & her family, but we were both super busy. We only managed to find an appropriate date for all of us last week.

I then decided to make spareribs with a homemade BBQ sauce, because this is one of my husband’s most requested meals. I served the ribs with oven baked sweet potato fries and homemade bread. Our guests enjoyed every bit of this meal.

Making ribs with bbq sauce is way easier to make than you think.  All you have to do is make the BBQ sauce, pour it over the ribs, throw the spareribs in the oven for 90 minutes. Then leave them cooking turning several times and DONE!

Pat dry spareribs with paper towels and put them in a casserole dish. Then preheat the oven to 200 °C (392 °F), with both top and bottom heat.

Next make the BBQ Sauce. simply peel and chop the onions and garlic cloves.

In a saucepan heat the sunflower oil and sauté the onions for 3 minutes. Add garlic and saute for another minute.

Add sugar and keep stirring until sugar has dissolved.

Then add water, undrained canned tomatoes, soy sauce, vinegar, honey and chili flakes. Whisk to combine. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

Bring to a boil then reduce the heat to medium – low. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

Bake the spareribs

Pour half of the BBQ sauce over the spareribs and spread it over nicely to coat.

Bake for 45 minutes. Afterwards turn the spareribs and pour over half of the remaining sauce.

Bake for another 30 minutes.

Turn the spareribs once more and bake them for another 15 minutes.

In the meanwhile, simmer the remaining BBQ sauce for 10 minutes at medium-low heat.

Spread the BBQ sauce over the spareribs and enjoy!

Ich hatte das Vergnügen das Essen persönlich zu verköstigen. Und JA es schmeckt sogar noch besser als es aussieht. Das Fleisch war super zart, schälte sich fast von ganz alleine vom Knochen und harmonierte exzellent mit der Honig-Barbecue-Soße. Dazu gab es kross gebackene Süßkartoffeln, ebenfalls zum dippen. Ester kocht nicht nur hervorragend sondern ist auch eine sehr sympathische und zuvorkommende Gastgeberin. Vielen Dank für den schönen Abend Lg auch an deine kleine Familie Klaus
