These savory pork ribs are roasted to tender perfection with a tasty homemade barbecue sauce.

Cook Time: 2 hours, 15 minutes

Total Time: 2 hours, 15 minutes


  • 4 to 5 pounds pork spareribs
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • dash Tabasco sauce


If desired, remove the membrane (thin skin-like layer)  from the bone side of the ribs.* Cut the ribs into serving size portions. 

Place ribs in a shallow roasting pan, meaty side down; season with salt and pepper. Roast at 425° for 35 minutes. Drain off excess fat; turn meaty side up. Top ribs with sliced lemon and onion. Reduce oven temperature to 350° and continue to roast ribs for 30 minutes longer. Meanwhile, combine ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, salt and Tabasco in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and pour over ribs. Continue roasting ribs, basting occasionally, for 1 hour longer. Add more water if sauce gets too thick.
Ribs recipe serves 4 to 6.

To remove the skin-like membrane from the ribs, slide a knife under the skin until you can grasp enough to pull. Use a towel or paper towel to help you get a good grip, then hold the ribs down with your other hand and peel off the membrane
