Taste of Home’s Honey Beer Braised Ribs for Your Labor Day Barbecue
Make THIS Labor Day barbecue especially memorable with a Taste of Home recipe! Barbecue sauce is just like chili, there's a lot of different variations and when you find one the family likes, you stick to it. I've got your favorite right here! (I used ribs without the bone). ENJOY!
•1/2 cup packed brown sugar
•1 teaspoon pepper
•3/4 teaspoon salt
•6 pounds pork baby back ribs
•1/4 cup honey
•1 bottle (12 ounces) dark beer or beef broth
•1/4 cup cider vinegar
•1 bottle (18 ounces) barbecue sauce
•Combine the brown sugar, pepper and salt; rub over ribs. Place ribs bone side down on a rack in a large shallow roasting pan. Drizzle with honey. Combine beer and vinegar; pour around ribs. Spoon some of the beer mixture over ribs.
• Cover tightly with foil and bake at 325° for 1 hour. Reduce heat to 250°; bake 2 hours longer or until tender.
• Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack. Drain ribs. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 10-15 minutes or until browned, turning and basting occasionally with barbecue sauce. Serve with remaining barbecue sauce. Yield: 6 servings.
