Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 to 3 pounds boneless country-style pork ribs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons liquid smoke
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup water

Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2/3 cup onion
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees. Place ribs in an 11x7-inch baking dish.
  • Sprinkle ribs with liquid smoke and salt. Pour water into baking dish. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 1 hour.
  • While ribs are baking, make sauce. Heat oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until soft.
  • Add remaining sauce ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until thickened some.
  • Once the ribs have baked for 1 hour, remove them from the oven and drain all the liquid off. Pour about 1/3 of the sauce over the ribs. Recover and bake another 1 hour, basting every 20 minutes with more sauce.
  • Serve with remaining sauce.
