A Happy New Year to all the readers out there.  May 2017 be filled with lots of yummy dishes in your kitchen. It was a busy holiday season, so unfortunately my blog took a seat on the back burner so to speak.  But I’m back again, ready to share some of my own creations and read a lot of yours.

These ribs were always a great hit at some of our parties.  I usually use baby back ribs for this particular recipe.  They are hearty, juicy and a great finger food that is sure to get a nod from all your guests.  However, I was not shopping for baby back ribs this particular day, but rather thought some country style pork ribs would make a great weekday meal.

Country style ribs

  • Servings: 4
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


  • 1 1/2 lbs baby back or country style ribs
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire Sauce
  • 3 pods crushed garlic
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1 tablespoon HP sauce
  • 1/4 cup (or more) molasses
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Siracha sauce (optional)


  1. Place ribs fat side facing down in a pan.
  2. Add chopped onion and crushed garlic.
  3. Place in oven for 450 degrees for half an hour.
  4. In the meantime, mix Ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, HP sauce, Molasses, water, lemon juice, siracha sauce and cilantro in a bowl and mix well.
  5. After half an hour, lower the oven temperature to 350 degrees, pour the sauce mixture over the ribs and place in the oven for an hour or less.  Do not cover.

Baked to succulent perfection. Look at those yummy juices – smashed potato did a great job sopping it all up.

    1. Thank you Julie. I’m sure John will enjoy the “kick” :). We got our first snowfall yesterday, but really just about an inch, so not much. It has gotten extremely cold though. Do you have much snow at all?

  1. Loretta,
    I could drink that sauce 🙂 You have the sweet ,tangy and spicy going on there and the color looks amazing too. We have about 6 inches of snow today and they are predicting another 4 inches before it all ends at midnight.
    Happy New Year to you and your family! Here’s to more cooking adventures, my friend!

    1. Thanks so much Sandhya. The baby back ribs are really great at a party as a finger food. They are always so popular! We had our first snowfall this weekend, probably about 3 inches? Oh so bitterly cold too, but the temperatures are slated to climb and by Thursday, we’ll be almost at 60degF. Ha ha, can’t wait. Enough cold already for these old bones 🙂 It seems like you’ve been blasted too, stay warm my friend!

      1. Yes we had minus 10 yesterday 😦 Cannot wait for the summer. But tomorrow and the day after we have the 50 degree thaw.
        Football season is in full swing and your baby back ribs are perfect for that too!

    1. Not at all ignorant Susan, I should know that the blog reaches people around the world. HP sauce is a brown sauce originally from England. It has a slight tangy and sweet taste. You can now find it here in the USA too and other countries. I hope this helps 🙂 By the way, if you don’t have it, it’s no biggie.
