Mom's Homemade BBQ Sauce with Ribs

It rained all day and so it felt like a good day for making dinner in the oven.  I made ribs with my Mom's homemade BBQ sauce.  I was flooded with memories of my childhood at the first taste!


1 cup ketchup
1 cup water
1/2 to 3/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white vinegar
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 dashes of Tabasco
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 Tbsp butter

Mix all ingredients together in a sauce pan and bring to a boil.  Then simmer 20 to 30 minutes until thickened.   This is an excellent all-purpose BBQ sauce.

Preheat oven to 250 degrees and season ribs with salt and pepper.  Bake in a roast pan on a rack with a little water in the bottom of the pan.  Slowly cook the ribs for a couple of hours.  Increase heat to 350. Then slice into individual ribs and put in a casserole dish.  Pour sauce over and bake for another 30 to 40 minutes.  Tender, juicy and very flavourful.
