Yummy pork rib tips in a homemade BBQ sauce. Yummy pork rib tips in a homemade BBQ sauce.
Number of Servings: 8


    about 4 lbs pork baby back ribs - I use the trim tips
    1 medium onion, thinly sliced
    2 lemons, thinly sliced

    1 c ketchup
    1 c water
    3 T worcestershire sauce
    1/4 c soy sauce
    1 t tabasco sauce with garlic
    1 t chili powder
    1 T garlic powder or equivalent (I sometimes use prepared garlic paste)
    scant tsp ground mustard
    1 t black pepper


The nutritional information will be high because it includes all the sauce. Most of the sauce will remain after cooking.

The serving size is about 1 strip (per the package I bought). Each strip was about 1 lb., including bones. The nutrition information will again be incorrect because an actual serving is only the meat: about 4 oz.


Preheat oven to 450F.
Arrange riblets in a single layer in a baking pan with fat side up if possible.
Thinly slice an onion and 2 lemons (I sometimes use lemon juice instead of lemons, but the fruit tastes better). Strew slices over the riblets.
Bake for about 30 minutes.

Prepare sauce:
Combine remaining ingredients in a large mixing cup.
Pour over cooked riblets.
Cover with foil and return to oven at 325F for an hour to hour-and-a-half, until riblets are tender. Remove onion and lemon slices. Ribs may be held for a little while until you're ready to finish them on the grill.

Heat grill to "steak temp". Grill riblets until lightly charred and degreased.

You may reduce the sauce to pour over the riblets. They don't usually last long enough in our house to do this!

We like these served with roasted veggies.
