When I was about 8 years old my mom got this recipe from a neighbor lady. Every year for Christmas Eve, my mom would make these, this is my favorite memory of Christmas. To this day I still make these, not only at Christmas but throughout the year. They are now enjoyed by my family and my two grandaughters. Still worth licking your fingers for.
Combine first 9 ingredients in blender and blend until smooth, set aside.
Chop onions and set aside.
Heat oil in skillet and brown the ribs until browned on all sides may salt and pepper if desired, or you can brown on the grill. When brown place in large roaster and cover with onions. Pour sauce over the top, cook covered at 350 degrees for 3-5 hours, turning every 30 minutes. (*note the cooking time will vary depending on the cut of ribs you use). Uncover and cook uncovered for the last 30 minutes turning at 15 minutes. I also like to chill these after they are done and put them on the grill the next day to glaze sauce, this works especially good if you are having guests. Enjoy..
