Oven BBQ Spareribs Recipe ClippingThis recipe was clipped from a magazine, date unknown but I’d guess 1960s or so. Recipe is typed below along with a scanned copy.


4 to 5 Pounds Spareribs
1 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Pepper
Thinly Cut Lemon Slices
1 Large Onion, Cut Fine
1 Teaspoon Chili Powder
1 Tablespoon Celery Seed
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Vinegar
1/4 Cup Worcestershire Sauce
1 cup Tomato Catchup
2 Cups Water
Few Drops Tabasco Sauce

Cut spareribs into pieces 2 or 3 ribs wide. Spread in shallow baking pan meaty side up. Season. On each piece place one lemon slice and sprinkle chopped onion over all. Bake uncovered 45 minutes at 450° F. Combine remaining ingredients and bring to boil. Pour over ribs, reduce oven to 350° F. and roast uncovered 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Baste occasionally with sauce.

I am trying to find the recipe that I used in an older Betty Crocker book for Barbecued Beef Ribs. One of the ingredients it had in was tomato juice. Can you help me??

THANKS YOU!! I have used this recipe for the 50+ years & lost the recipe as it was in an OLDE Betty Crocker cookbook which was given away! Been years and NOW I can enjoy these ribs again!

Thank you so much for posting this. My late Mother’s cookbook is packed in a random box at my brother’s house. I asked for a copy but it had already been moved as we were trying to flip her home in two weeks. I can now make this for my family. It was always my favorite but we had to wait for cool weather before my mom would turn on the oven in Texas.

I’m so happy to find this old favorite recipe I used to make frequently! It was in a really old Betty Crocker cookbook that I somehow no longer have. Thank you!
