Preparation / Directions:
Slice the ribs apart and place in a large cast iron skillet. Cover with
salted water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer over low
heat for one hour, or until the meat is fork tender but not falling from
While the ribs are cooking, prepare the sauce. Melt the butter in a saucepan and sauté the finely chopped onion. Stir in the water, vinegar, catsup, bottled sauce, lemon juice, and seasonings. Bring to a boil, stirring, and remove from heat.
Place the ribs in a shallow pan and cover with the sauce, coating the ribs evenly. Place in the refrigerator for at least two hours.
Barbecue the ribs on an outdoor grill over moderately hot coals, basting
with the sauce and turning often until well browned.
