It was football season here in the United States a few months ago and my friends and I had been making chicken wings to the point that we got a little winged out. Thank goodness football season is over!
Now I’ve moved on to a sport that is a little bit more my speed, NASCAR, and it was time for a new meat. Since NASCAR is traditionally a sport from the southern United States, as is BBQ, I figured I would try out this recipe inspired by the Beeroness’s Oven Roasted Ribs with Stout BBQ Sauce.
I won’t lie to you. This recipe takes a long, long, long time but it is well worth the effort.
Start out by preheating your oven at 250F degrees.
You will need the following ingredients:
4 lbs of bone in baby back ribs
1 tablespoon Olive Oil
4 cloves of garlic
1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
2/3 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 ½ teaspoons sriracha
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
1 cup of stout (I recommend Guinness)
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon onion powder
Take the oil and put it in a medium-sized pan to warm it up. Add in the obscene amount of garlic and plan on not kissing anyone for a few days. Warm up the garlic for about 30 seconds. After that add the rest of the ingredients (minus the ribs). You will stir occasionally for about 15 minutes, until the mixture thickens up.
After you have the sauce ready to go, line your ribs up on a foil covered baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Place the ribs on the sheet and use a basting brush to coat the top of the ribs. Don’t worry about coating the entire rib, you will be rotating the ribs every 30 to 45 minutes, coating the ribs each time you rotate. Do remember to get the edges however.
Place in the oven and now the long process begins. It takes about 4 hours to bake these ribs but don’t worry you won’t get bored as you are constantly rotating the ribs!
Once the ribs are done prepare yourself. I’m not kidding – seriously prep yourself. The Beeroness has quite possibly outdone herself here! These ribs were perfect with flavor that is delightful. My only modification to the recipe was adding chili sauce instead of ketchup as I forgot to buy ketchup at the store. And yes I know it is odd that I had chili sauce but not ketchup. The chili sauce has a little bit more spice to it which was greatly welcomed in this household. I paired the ribs with sweet potato fries and was quite delighted with my meal. Also no need to tell me that my plate of food was lacking vegetables – I know. Bad Brittany… Bad!
