Why I Love This Recipe

This is a recipe I have made for many years. It came from the 1962 souvenir edition of the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook.

Ingredients You'll Need

3 to 4 lbs spareribs or back ribs
1 lemon, thinly sliced
1 large onion, thinly sliced

Basting Sauce
1 cup catsup
1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp salt
2 dashes Tabasco sauce
1 1/2 cups water


Salt ribs; place in shallow roasting pan meaty side up. Roast at 450° about 30 minutes. Drain excess fat from pan. Top each piece of ribs with a slice of lemon and a slice of onion.

Make Basting Sauce: Combine remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Pour over ribs, Lower temperature to 350°. bake until well done, about 1 1/2 hrs. If sauce gets too thick, add more water. Makes 4 servings.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

This was a request recipe - Myrna has served these delicious ribs for years - and you don't have to have a grill! My sister-in-law tried this and loved it too - she pointed out that there is no sugar in this recipe.
