Sticky-crisp barbecued ribs

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
6 pounds Meaty pork spareribs
¾ cup All-purpose flour
1 tablespoon Paprika
1 Clove garlic, minced
¼ teaspoon Pepper
¾ cup Each chili sauce & ketchup
¼ cup Apple jelly
2 tablespoons Cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon Chili powder


Trim any fat from ribs. In large plastic bag, combine flour, paprika, garlic and pepper. Add ribs (cut racks in half if too large for bag) and shake well to coat. Arrange, meaty-side-up, in single layer in shallow baking pan or pans. Bake in 325øF oven until tender, about 1¼ hours.

SAUCE: In saucepan, combine chili sauce, ketchup, jelly, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and chili powder. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes; let cool. Pour sauce over ribs in pan (or in large plastic bag), turning to coat well. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for at least 4 hours or up to 24 hours. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before grilling. Reserving any sauce, place ribs (meaty-side-up) on a greased grill over medium-high heat. Cook, brushing with sauce occasionally and turning once, for about 15 minutes or until crisp and browned. Cut into serving pieces and serve immediately. Yield: 8 servings.
