Mom's 'Fall Off The Bone' Oven-Baked BBQ Pork Ribs

Print Friendly and PDF

Even writing this blog post has me salivating.


These oven-baked BBQ pork ribs are one of my favourite things to walk into my parents' house for Sunday dinner and smell cooking away in the kitchen.  They are so saucy, tender, fall-off-the-bone delicious that I can't believe it's taken me this long to get this recipe up on the blog!  Whenever I make them it reminds me of my mom, who pretty much has the market cornered on delicious comfort food.

Speaking of which, we were going to make them for supper when my parents came by a couple of weekends ago, but then The Hubby informed me that it's a faux pas to cook something for someone that they make for you when you go to their house (who knew?!), so we had them the next night instead because after getting them into my head I couldn't get them out!  For those of you who don't like loose ends (or if you just like me and don't like not knowing all of the details to every single thing all the time), we ended up having steak for dinner the night my parents came (also good).

These ribs are best served with mashed potatoes to soak up the BBQ sauce, and in my family we always use this delicious baked cheesy mashed potato recipe when eating them (and pretty much every other time that dinner demands mashed potatoes!).

My version of the recipe follows below, but here it is in my mom's own words...the sign of a great recipe is in the food splatter marks all over it!

Mom's 'Fall Off The Bone' Oven-Baked BBQ Pork Ribs

Serves: 6


For Ribs:
  • 6 pounds 'country-style' pork ribs
  • 2 lemons, thinly sliced
  • 2 onions, thinly sliced
For Sauce:
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 + 1/4 cups Heinz chili sauce
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons molasses
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 6 teaspoons chili powder
  • 3 teaspoons celery seed
  • 3 teaspoons dry mustard
  • 1 + 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Cut excess fat off of ribs.  Arrange in a single layer in a lasagne pan.  Distribute lemon and onion slices over top of ribs.

Cover with foil and bake for 1 + 1/2  to 2 hours.

Meanwhile, to make your sauce combine all of the sauce ingredients in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 1 hour uncovered, stirring occasionally.

When the ribs are cooked, remove from oven (leave oven on) and discard the lemon and onion pieces.  Drain off the liquid from the pan and discard.  Pour the hot BBQ sauce from the saucepan over top of the ribs.  Return the ribs to the oven and baked uncovered for about 1 hour, basting every 10 minutes.  Do not let the ribs dry out or they will be tough to eat.

Serve with a green vegetable, mashed potatoes (such as this delicious recipe), and a green salad, for a comfort dinner like no other.
