Super Tasty One-Hour Ribs

I'm always on a quest for a better rib recipe. Some call for marinating overnight, others call for looooong slow cooking. But these? Ready in an hour, complete with homemade BBQ sauce. Lip-smakin' goodness. That is all.


  • 4 racks baby back pork ribs
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 2-1/4 cups ketchup
  • 1-3/4 cups low sodium chicken broth, divided
  • 7 tbsp soy sauce, divided
  • 6 tbsp (packed) dark brown sugar
  • 4-1/2 tbsp light molasses
  • 3 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • salt & pepper
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Sprinkle each side of the ribs with salt, pepper and the chili powder. Arrange ribs, meaty side up, on 2 rimmed baking sheets. Pour remaining broth and soy sauce into each baking sheet. Cover tightly with foil. Bake in oven for 1 hour or until ribs are very tender.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in medium saucepan over medium heat. Press garlic through garlic press into pan. Stir 30 seconds. Mix in ketchup, 3/4 cup chicken broth, 3 tbsp soy sauce, brown sugar, molasses and vinegar. Bring sauce to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer until reduced to 3 cups, stirring occasionally (about 15 minutes).
  3. Once the ribs are done, you can do one of 2 things: pour the BBQ sauce over them and enjoy (this is what I do) ... OR, put them on a barbecue and baste with sauce, cooking just until the sauce has carmelized.
Serve immediately with a salad & maybe corn on the cob. Oh, and lots of napkins :) Enjoy!!
