    • 1 (375ml) tin or bottle beer
    • 1 1/2 cups (375ml) water
    • 1 tablespoon salt
    • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 2.5kg pork spareribs
    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 1 cup thinly sliced onions
    • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
    • 500g tinned diced tomatoes with juice
    • 1 cup (250ml) tomato sauce
    • 3 tablespoons molasses
    • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

    • 1/2 lemon, sliced into rounds

    Directions
    Preparation:2hours  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:2hours25min 

    1. Pour beer and water into a large stock pot. Add salt and stir to dissolve. Bring mixture to a boil over medium high heat.
    2. In a large frypan or frying pan, heat vegetable oil over high heat. Sear ribs on both sides. Place on paper towels to briefly drain. Add seared ribs to the beer/water mixture. Add more water as needed to cover the ribs. Cover pot and simmer for 2 hours.
    3. While the ribs are simmering, melt the butter in a sauce pan and saute the onions and garlic until onions are translucent. Stir in tomatoes, tomato sauce, molasses, Worcestershire, mustard, salt, Tabasco sauce and vinegar. Bring to a slow boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low and leave it simmering until the ribs are finished.
    4. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
    5. Drain ribs and arrange them in a shallow baking tray. Ladle the sauce over the ribs evenly, slice each slice of lemon in half, and distribute the half slices on top of the sauce. Cover with foil loosely and place in the oven for 15 minutes then uncover for the last 10, a total of 25 minutes oven time. Remove rind from lemon slices, discard rind, returning lemon "meat" to sauce on top of the ribs, and serve ribs covering each with sauce on the plate.

    Yum!! I will definitely use this as my rib recipe. I tweaked it quite a bit because I had to use what was left in my cupboards. I substituted tomato sauce for the diced tomatos, brown sugar for the molasas, lemon juice for the lemons, and BBQ sauce for the Worchestire. I simmered them for only 1 hour and 15 minutes before cooking them in the oven because my ribs were boneless. They were so tender & the sauce was perfect. Thanks for sharing this!  -  13 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
