Ingredients for Finger Lickin Balsamic Pork Ribs
4 pounds pork Ribs
1/4 cup of favorite spice mix
1 Tablespoon Arbequina Olive Oil
1/2 Onion Minced
1/4 cup Traditional Balsamic (try the Pomegranate or Tangerine)
1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
1/4 cup Ketchup
1 large Lime, juice only
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
1 Tablespoon Mustard
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon Garlic powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Select a large baking pan to fit spareribs in one layer. Line with heavy duty foil. Place baking rack (a cake rack works fine) inside lined pan to keep ribs from resting on the bottom of the pan.
While spareribs are baking, make barbecue sauce. Sweat minced onion in 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil over low heat until translucent and cooked, but not browned. Add Evergreen's aged traditional balsamic and cook three minutes until slightly reduced. Add tomato sauce, 1/4 cup Ketchup, Lime juice, Worcestershire sauce, and Mustard. Stir to combine well. Stir in brown sugar and Garlic powder. Continue cooking over low heat for 10 min.
Remove spareribs from oven and pour off fat. Turn spareribs and brush the bony side lightly with barbecue Sauce. Return spareribs to meaty side up and pour remaining barbecue sauce evenly over the ribs making sure all spots are covered with sauce. Cover with heavy duty foil.
Reduce oven heat to 325 degrees F. Bake covered spareribs an additional 1 to 1-1/2 hours or until done. Meat should be shrinking back from the tips of the bones and the bones should wiggle fairly easily in the meat. Let rest 10 minutes before serving. Cut into 2 to 3 rib portions and serve your Finger Lickin Balsamic Pork Ribs hot.
