BBQ Ribs

This is so good and tender. I make ribs many different ways, but this is the families and mine favorite way. The BBQ sauce is sooooo good!!

(serves 4)

*2 1/2 pounds baby back pork ribs
*1 small onion, cut in half
*2 garlic cloves, chopped
*1/2 medium onion, chopped fine
*2 teaspoons minced garlic
*1 1/2 cups water
*1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
*1/2 cup white vinegar
*1/2 cup brown sugar
*2 tablespoon honey
*1 tablespoon dark molasses
*2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
*1 1/4 teaspoons liquid smoke flavoring
*1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
*2 teaspoons salt
*1/2 teaspoon black pepper
*1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
*1/4 teaspoon onion powder

~In a medium saucepan, 1/2 chopped onion, 2 teaspoons minced garlic, water, tomato paste, vinegar, brown sugar, honey, molasses, worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, cayenne pepper, salt, black pepper, paprika, & onion powder, over medium heat.
~Bring to a boil.
~Reduce heat, and simmer for 1-2 hours, or until sauce thickens.
~Put ribs, halved onions, & chopped garlic in a large saucepan.
~Cover with water (a couple inches over the ribs).
~Bring to a boil.
~Reduce heat to medium and cook ribs, covered, 1 1/2 hours.
~Remove ribs from stock pot.
~Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
~Place ribs on a baking sheet.
~Brush BBQ sauce over ribs.
~Bake for 15-20 minutes, rubbing more sauce on as needed.

-substitute the homemade BBQ sauce for your favorite store bought BBQ sauce.
-you could also grill in rather than put in oven.
-you can also do a slow cook after the boil. Set oven to 200 degrees for 1-2 hours.
