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.
Notes from the Test Kitchen:
The sauce in this recipe has a real bite... and we loved it!!
NOTE: 2 1/2 hrs was not quite enough cooking time for our ribs, so we continued to cook on low for another 4 hours. Keep an eye on your ribs, as cooking time really can vary this much depending on the meat.
Combine first 9 ingredients in blender and blend until smooth set aside.
Chop onions and set aside.
Heat oil in skillet and brown ribs until browned on all sides may salt and pepper if desired. When brown place in large roaster and cover with onions. Pour sauce over the top, cook covered at 350 degrees for 2 1/2 hours turning every 30 minutes. Uncover and cook uncovered for the last 30 minutes turning at 15 minutes.
