BBQ Pork Spare Ribs & Homemade Baked Beans

These pork spareribs are so tender they melt in your mouth. This is one of Korry's favorite meat recipes. The sauce is easy to prepare and the dish can simmer for several hours in the crockpot or cook a couple of hours in the oven. Boneless pork spareribs are often on sale at the grocery store so this makes an affordable meal.

For the Boneless BBQ Ribs:

1 pkg. country style boneless pork ribs (you can also use 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast)
1/2 c. catsup
1/4 c. vinegar
1/4 c. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 c. water
6 T. butter
2 t. salt
1/2 c. brown sugar, packed
2 t. dry mustard
2 t. paprika
1 t. chili powder

Place ribs (or chicken, or both) in the bottom of a 13x9 baking pan; set aside. Mix remaining ingredients together; spread over meat. Bake at 300 degrees for 2-3 hours.

For the Baked Beans:

1 large can pork & beans
1 (15 oz.) can chili beans
1 (15 oz.) can kidney beans
1 lb. bacon
1 medium sized onion
1 large green pepper (optional)
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 c. ketchup
1 c. brown sugar

Cut bacon into pieces and fry in the bottom of a dutch oven or oven proof pan. Add the onions and peppers and saute slightly. Add all the other ingredients and stir well. Cover the dutch oven and place in a 300 degree oven. Bake for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally. When I'm in a hurry, I just let this simmer on the stove top for about 30-45 minutes OR I put it in the crockpot on low all day.

Wow! I made these spare ribs tonight- not sure how big the package was that you mentioned, but I used 3 pounds. They were amazing! The best ribs I've ever made for sure; and so simple and fool proof. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
