Ingredients

  • 5 lbs pork back ribs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups ketchup
  • 3/4 cup chili sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups water

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Cut ribs into 3 to 4-rib portions. Rub with salt and pepper. Place on rack in a shallow baking pan and roast at 450 for 30 minutes
  3. While ribs roast, combine remaining ingredients in non-reactive sauce pan. Heat to boiling. Reduce to simmer and simmer 30 minutes.
  4. Remove ribs from oven. Pour off fat. Flip ribs over so they are meaty-side down. Brush generously with sauce. Reduce oven to 300 degrees. Roast ribs for 30 minutes.
