  • Reduce heat to 325 degrees and bake for an additional 1 to 1 ½ hours. Check them at the 45-minute mark and turn them in the sauce.
  • When the ribs are tender, remove the foil and cook for 15 minutes without the foil, just enough to slightly reduce and thicken the sauce.

This recipe calls for Country Style Pork Ribs. The ones I bought most recently were mostly boneless, but a few had bones. They are in the meat section with other pork cuts.
I made my recipe with 2 ½ pounds of ribs and this amount of sauce was plenty. You could probably cook up to 3 ½ pounds with this amount of sauce.
This is a very mild BBQ sauce—not a bit spicy and not too sweet.
At first, it will seem like a lot of vinegar. Don’t worry, it will evaporate and just leave a bit of flavor.
