BBQ Pork Ribs Recipe

BBQ Pork Ribs Recipe

This is an unusual BBQ Pork Ribs Recipe. The pork ribs are simmered in beer until tender and then finished in the oven with the BBQ sauce and lemon. This is a super ribs recipe.

I prefer doing them on the grill but the oven works when the situation calls for it.

BBQ Pork Ribs Recipe


1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle beer
1 1/2 cups water
1 tablespoon salt
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
5 pounds pork spareribs
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup thinly sliced onions
2 cloves garlic, pressed
2 (8 ounce) cans diced tomatoes with juice
1 cup ketchup
3 tablespoons molasses
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 tablespoon hot pepper sauce
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1/2 lemon, sliced into rounds


Pour the beer and the water into a large stockpot. Add the salt and stir to dissolve. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium high heat.

In a large skillet or frying pan heat the vegetable oil over high heat. Sear the ribs on both sides in the skillet. Place the ribs on paper towels to briefly drain.

Add the seared ribs to the beer and water mixture. Add more water as needed to cover the ribs. Cover the pot and simmer for 2 hours.

While the ribs are simmering, melt the butter in a saucepan and saute the onions and garlic until the onions are translucent.

Stir in the tomatoes, ketchup, molasses, Worcestershire, mustard, salt, hot pepper sauce and vinegar. Bring the mixture to a slow boil, stirring constantly. Reduce the heat to low and leave it simmering until the ribs are finished.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

Drain the ribs and arrange them in a shallow roasting pan. Ladle the sauce over the ribs evenly. Slice each slice of lemon in half and distribute the half slices on top of the sauce.

Cover the pan with loosely with foil and place in the oven for 15 minutes, and then uncover for the last 10, a total of 25 minutes oven time.

Remove the rinds from the lemon slices and discard the rinds. Return the lemon flesh to the sauce on top of the ribs.

Cover the ribs with more sauce and serve.

Diehard BBQ ribs fanatics will claim this is not BBQ ribs because the ribs are done in the oven and not on a bbq grill or smoker. The proof is in the eating, however, and you will get rave reviews with this BBQ Pork Ribs Recipe.

BBQ Pork Ribs

BBQ Pork RibsBBQ Pork Ribs are perfect for a backyard barbecue. This bbq pork recipe, aside from being tender and moist, can be made ahead of time and finished on the grill or BBQ for a few minutes and then served sizzling hot.

If you are really crushed for time, make these ribs well ahead of time and freeze them, individually tightly wrapped in plastic. That way you can also use only what you need.

I like to use the onion butter basting sauce described below, but you may prefer to use your own basting sauce or barbecue sauce. Just keep an eye on those ribs while they are grilling to keep the sauce from flaring up and burning the meat.

Easy BBQ Pork Ribs Recipe


5 pounds pork spareribs cut into serving size portions
1 cup barbecue sauce – hickory smoke flavored is best for this recipe
1 cup ketchup
1 cup water from the boiling liquid used for the ribs
1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 medium onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 lemon, juiced
kosher salt and ground black pepper


Season the spareribs with plenty of the salt and black pepper. Put them in a large roasting pan or kettle and cover them with water. Bring the pot to a boil, and then turn down the heat to a simmer, cover the pot and let the ribs gently cook for about 2 hours, just until the meat is starting to pull away from the bones, but not quite falling off.

Reserve one cup of the cooking water for the basting sauce. Let the ribs cool in the pan with the water, and then cover the pan and refrigerate it for at least 2 hours.

Melt the butter in a medium saucepan and sauté the onion and garlic until they are soft but not brown.

Whisk together the ketchup, the cup of reserved cooking water, the white vinegar and lemon juice. Put the mixture in a blender and add the melted butter and onions. Puree the mixture until it is smooth. Pour it back into the saucepan and season with kosher salt and black pepper, bring the sauce to a boil, and then reduce the heat and simmer it for a minute. Set the sauce aside.

Light a charcoal barbecue or heat a gas grill. Remove the cooked ribs from the liquid and dry them off just a bit. Start grilling the ribs, turning to cook both sides, then begin basting them with the sauce after about 5 minutes. Serve the ribs when they are completely heated through, about 20 minutes.

Serve with the remaining basting sauce on the side, or heat up some of your favorite BBQ sauce. The hickory smoke flavored sauce used for basting is a great choice.

Serves 4

Good To Know – One other way for prepping the ribs is to season them well and then layer them on a baking sheet, wrap them well in foil, and bake in a low oven, about 275F, for 2 to 2 1/2 hours. Refrigerate them for 2 hours before putting them on the grill.

Just remember that the meat needs to be just beginning to pull away from the bones in order to insure that they are tender when finished grilling.

Enjoy these great BBQ Pork Ribs!

BBQ Pork Recipe

BBQ Pork RecipeThis BBQ Pork Recipe has been developed over the years as a specialty BBQ pork for an annual picnic.

The recipe is always good for a crowd and can be transported easily.

I like it because of the combination of sweet and smoky – cooked up totally by accident – when there wasn’t enough of just one kind of barbecue sauce.

Later Tabasco sauce was added to give it a little extra spice. The result is incredibly delicious so don’t expect any leftovers!

Slow Cooker BBQ Pork Recipe For Sandwiches


2 1/2 pounds boneless pork roast, from the shoulder or butt
2 bottles (12 ounces) barbecue sauce – one traditional and one extra smoky
3 cups beef broth
2 cups strong black coffee
10 cloves garlic, left whole
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons whiskey or bourbon
1 large onion, diced
1/2 teaspoon crushed red chili flakes
1 tablespoon Tabasco
Kosher salt and ground black pepper


Season the pork roast with the salt and black pepper. Place it in the slow cooker or crockpot and then add the garlic cloves and diced onion.

Whisk together the beef broth, brewed coffee, Worcestershire sauce, whiskey, crushed red chili and Tabasco sauce. Pour this mixture over the seasoned pork roast and cook, covered, on low for 3 to 4 hours.

Remove the whole garlic cloves from the pot and mash them with the side of a large knife, and then put them back in the pot and cook for another 3 hours.

Transfer the cooked pork roast to a cutting board and shred the meat with 2 forks or your hands. Turn the crockpot on high to reduce the cooking liquids almost all the way down. Discard the diced onions.

Put the shredded pork roast back into the pot with the reduced liquids and add both jars of barbecue sauce. Mix the meat and sauce until it well combined. Add a little water if it seems too thick. Cover the pot and simmer the pork on low heat for 1 to 2 hours.

Serve your BBQ Pork with toasted hamburger buns and coleslaw.

Serves 10

Good To Know – You can speed up the process by cooking the pork roast on high heat in the slow cooker. Keep an eye on the liquids and add a cup of water if necessary.

On Your Own – Experiment with the different BBQ sauces available – you can use 2 bottles of the same one if you have a special favorite, or you can mix and match any others that you like. Be sure to write down your preferences so you can duplicate your success next time.

Food For Thought – Someone once asked if it made a difference if you used decaf coffee, and the answer is no. Just make sure your coffee is extra strong – I know someone who doesn’t drink coffee at all and she used 8 packs of instant coffee for the 2 cups required and gave the rest away.

Serve this up at your next family gathering. Your friends and family will surely enjoy the delicious flavor of pulled pork with this BBQ Pork Recipe.

Honey Mustard BBQ Pork Chops


1/3 cup honey
3 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
8 thin cut pork chops


Place the honey, orange juice, vinegar, wine, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, tarragon, and mustard in a large resealable plastic bag.

Slash the fatty edge of each chop in about three places without cutting into the meat to prevent the pork chops from curling during cooking. Place the pork chops in the plastic bag, and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Overnight is better as they will absorb more flavor.

Preheat your grill for high heat.

Lightly oil the grill grate. Place the chops on the grill and discard marinade.

Cook the pork chops for 6 to 8 minutes, turning once, or to desired doneness.

Watch your pork chops carefully while grilling. Because of the honey they can burn on the edges pretty quickly. A small price to pay for this delicious grilled BBQ Pork Chop Recipe.

Barbeque Pork Chops – Quick and Easy Barbequed Pork Chops Recipe

Barbeque Pork Chops - Quick and Easy Barbequed Pork Chops RecipeBarbeque Pork Chops that are simply cooked in a tangy barbecue sauce somehow always seem to make everyone happy. These barbequed pork chops are in that category but they have a special twist.

This barbecue pork chop recipe has fresh squeezed lemon juice bathing the pork chops as they simmer in barbecue sauce.

About the only thing to be careful of is to not overcook your barbecued pork chops. A Teflon pan is best for this preparation.

You choose your favorite sauce, season the chops and then dredge them in the sauce. Now that’s a quick and easy barbequed pork chops recipe.

The chops form a light crust as they saute in the hot pan, and the addition of the lemon juice gives them just the right sharpness to keep all the flavors in focus.

A great barbequed pork chops recipe for when you need something quick and easy that the whole family will enjoy.

Barbeque Pork Chops – Quick and Easy Barbequed Pork Chops Recipe


4 pork chops, about 1 inch thick
1 cup barbecue sauce – your favorite
Juice of 2 lemons
Kosher salt and ground black pepper


Coat each pork chop with the barbecue sauce. Put them in a single layer in a large Teflon skillet. Put the skillet over the burner and bring it up to a medium-low heat.

When the bottom of the chops begins to brown, turn them over and continue cooking, turning again until each side of the chops has a crust. Pour some of the lemon juice over each side of the chops and let them absorb it.

Serve on a warmed platter with extra barbeque sauce on the side.

Food For Thought – These pork chops are also excellent broiled.

Heat the broiler to low heat and move the broiler pan as far from the heat source as possible. Just brush the barbeque sauce over the seasoned chops, rather than heavily coating them with it.

Be sure to line the broiler pan with foil to make turning them easier. Squeeze with the fresh lemon juice on both sides before serving.

Good To Know – The pork chops will stay moist if cooked over a low flame with this recipe.

A high heat would most likely burn the barbeque sauce before the meat could properly cook.

If you don’t want to pay much attention to them, add 1/4 cup of water with 2 or 3 tablespoons of lemon juice to the skillet, cover it and simmer over a low flame.

The liquid will keep the pork moist, and the excess can be boiled off when the chops are almost done.

Remove the cover and increase the heat until the liquids are reduced. Serve and enjoy.

There you have it! Quick and easy barbecue pork chops with a lemon twist that is family pleasing for a weeknight meal.

Barbecue Ribs Recipes

Barbecue Ribs Recipes

One of these two barbecue ribs recipes is bound to satisfy the most discriminating barbecue ribs palate. The first of the recipes is slow smoked and the second is oven glazed to tender goodness.

Slow Smoked Hickory Ribs Recipe


2 tablespoons paprika
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
5 pounds pork spareribs
2 pounds hickory wood chips, soaked


In a medium bowl, stir together the paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, ground black pepper, cumin, brown sugar, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. Apply the mixture liberally to the ribs.

Place ribs in a large roasting pan, cover, and refrigerate overnight. Remove the ribs from the refrigerator 1 hour before smoking.

Prepare an outdoor smoker, bringing the temperature to 200 to 225 degrees F.

Smoke the pork spare ribs for 6 to 8 hours, adding wood chips to maintain a steady smoke (approximately one handful every 30 to 45 minutes).

The ribs are done when they are crispy on the outside and tender inside. Remove from smoker, and set aside for 15 to 20 minutes before serving.

These ribs are sure to be a hit at your next outdoor party.

Honey Barbecued Spare Ribs

The honey basting forms a glaze that seals in the juicy goodness of these barbecued ribs.


3 pounds pork spare ribs or pork loin back ribs
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon instant minced onion
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

Cut the pork spare ribs into serving-size pieces.

Place the ribs, bone side down, on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Cover and roast at 350 degrees F for 1 hour and then drain.

Combine all the remaining ingredients in a bowl to make a glaze. Brush some of the glaze on the ribs. Roast, uncovered, 30-45 minutes longer or until the meat is tender, brushing occasionally with the remaining glaze.

This pork ribs recipe makes great party fare also. Roasting in the oven gives you time to mingle with guests while dinner is cooking.

If you have a smoker I highly recommend the Slow Smoked Hickory Ribs Recipe but honey glazed ribs are hard to beat also. In fact both are super barbecued ribs recipes.

Barbecue Pork Tenderloin Recipe

Barbecue Pork Tenderloin Recipe

A barbecue pork tenderloin recipe seasoned with garlic, rosemary and thyme! Fire up your barbecue, invite some guests and expect some pats on the back when they taste this pork tenderloin.

Grilled pork tenderloin with garlic, thyme and rosemary


3 pounds pork tenderloin
1/4 cup olive oil
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
1/2 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
1 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons ground black pepper


Cut a horizontal slit in the pork tenderloin leaving the halves attached. Rub the tenderloin with olive oil.

Insert the garlic into the slit and on onto the fatty part of pork. Press the thyme and rosemary into the slit. Sprinkle the pork tenderloin with salt and pepper.

You can begin cooking your tenderloin at this time but for even better flavor wrap it up and let it marinate in your refrigerator for about 2 hours.

Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat.

Lightly oil the grill grate. Place the pork tenderloin on the grill. Cook the tenderloin, turning every 15 minutes, to a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees F.

The cooking time will vary depending on the size of your tenderloin. Keep and eye on it and a thermometer in it! Remove it from the fire when the thermometer reaches 150 degrees F. Residual cooking will reach the 160 degree mark.

Let the tenderloin sit for at least 10 minutes before you slice and serve it.

When your guests are finished with all the pats on the back and ask for the recipe just tell them it’s an old family secret and you don’t give out your barbecue pork tenderloin recipe.
