“And I used to think that ribs were such a lotta trouble. A good friend showed me how to fix them this way. We prefer our Andrew P's BBQ sauce (posted here on zaar) with these ribs.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 -4 lbs ribs (NOT beef)
  • 2 cups barbecue sauce (Andrew P's BBQ Sauce)


  1. Separate ribs by nicking with a knife and then tearing apart with your hands. They seem to hold more sauce done this way.
  2. Place ribs in steamer over rapidly boiling water.
  3. Steam for 12 to 15 minutes.
  4. Heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  5. Cool ribs for 2 or 3 minutes.
  6. Place ribs on foil lined cookie sheet.
  7. Brush ribs liberally with sauce; turn ribs over; brush other side.
  8. Bake about 10 minutes; turn ribs and brush with sauce again.
  9. Bake a further 10 minutes.
  10. Repeat last two steps, if necessary.
  11. Ribs can be done on a grill instead of in an oven; just be sure that it is not too hot.
  12. NOTE: Frozen ribs can be fixed this way; place frozen ribs straight into the steamer; steam an extra 5 to 10 minutes and, obviously, separate the ribs after they have cooled from the steaming.
