Whoopi Goldberg's Beef Ribs





Butch's BBQ Sauce


  1. Ribs: Place the ribs in a large pan of cold water and bring to a boil. Simmer, uncovered, for 45 minutes. While the ribs are cooking, combine all the marinade ingredients in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes.
  2. Heat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  3. Drain the ribs and arrange in 1 layer in a large roasting pan. Pour 2 cups of marinade over them, brushing it on to cover both sides. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, until the ribs are tender.
  4. Serve with lots of napkins and a bowl of the remaining marinade on the side.
  5. Butch's BBQ Sauce: Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium high heat until hot. Add the chopped onion and garlic, and cook, stirring, about 1 minute. Add all the remaining ingredients and 2 1/2 cups of water. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes.
  6. Remove the bay leaf and let cool.
  7. The sauce will keep in a covered container in the refrigerator for 2 months.

Makes 7 to 8 cups.
