It had been a long time since I was planning to develop a quick homemade barbecue sauce recipe to prepare. I tried several kinds of commercial sauces but none pleased us. Since most commercial barbecue sauces are too sweet, salty and often have a strong smoky taste, I have concocted this delicious basting sauce for pork ribs or poultry. You can even double the recipe to freeze ready to use on your grill.
The spare ribs are cooked then brushed with the sauce each time they are turned while they are heating on the grill. Brush again when serving and put a jar of sauce on the table for those who would prefer to add more.
The poultry is brushed with sauce in the last 15 minutes of cooking.
Cooking the Ribs
- Place the oven rack in the lower third of the oven.
- Preheat oven to 350 ° F (180 ° C).
- Put the pork ribs in a dripping pan and pour 1/4 cup (60 ml) of water.
- Salt and pepper the meat slightly.
- Cover the broiler pan with aluminum foil, sealing it well.
- Cook 1 ½ hours to 2 hours until the flesh gives way when inserting a fork.
- Brush with sauce and cook for about 15 minutes over low heat on the barbecue, turning ribs once or twice. The ribs cooked and brushed with a layer of sauce can be stored for 5 days in the refrigerator and 3 months in the freezer. When ready finish cooking on the barbecue or under the broil, brushing with more sauce.
The sauce can be refrigerated for 2 weeks and frozen for 6 months.
