Southern Style Barbecued Spareribs

User Rating 2 Star Rating (1 Review)


Southern style spareribs are baked with homemade barbecue sauce.


  • 4 pounds spareribs, cut in serving-size portions
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 tablespoon celery seed
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • dash liquid smoke
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper


Place spareribs on rack in a large roasting pan. Pour water into the bottom of the pan to a depth of 1/2 inch. Cover tightly and bake at 300° for 1 1/2 hours, until ribs are tender. Combine all remaining ingredients, blending well. Drain liquid from the ribs and remove rack from pan. Pour 1 cup of the sauce over the ribs. Bake in open pan at 325° for 30 minutes. Pour remaining sauce over ribs; bake 30 minutes longer. Baste occasionally to make sure ribs are completely covered.
Serves 4 to 6.

Recipe needs some tweaks, Member gatour

I just made this recipe as listed and that it was good but not great. I will try it again. I liked the idea of basically steaming the ribs instead of boiling. Next time I will do the initial cooking, bone side up, so the fat will render down through the meat and cut down the cooking time. When it comes time to baste with the BBQ sauce, I will flip them and apply the sauce and cook as directed. I basted the ribs every 15 minutes during the final hour of cooking. The BBQ sauce was okay. I will cut back on the worchester sauce by half on my next try. It took me a bit to figure out what flavor was out of balance and I finally realized it was the worchester sauce.
