Broiled Ribs with Homemade Barbecue Sauce

I scored a great deal on boneless pork ribs and made plans to grill them. Unfortunately the weather didn’t cooperate with my plans.. Fall arrived last weekend at our house and brought high winds and rain with it, so my plans for barbecue ribs was shifted from the grill to my oven where I broiled them. Broiling ribs is actually quite easy.

How to Broil Ribs

My very old oven did not come with a broiler pan, so I improvise and place foil over a large cookie sheet. Before broiling the ribs, I created a rub and worked it into the meat. Then I broiled the boneless ribs for 10 minutes on each side.

Cooking Ribs in the Broiler

After broiling the ribs for 10 minutes on each side, I coated them with homemade barbecue sauce and broiled them for another 10 minutes. I made a triple batch of ribs. One for dinner and two for the freezer. Doubling and tripling recipes allows me to fill my freezer in 30 minutes a day.

Alea’s Broiled Ribs with Homemade Barbecue Sauce

Adapted from Barbecued Boneless Ribs

Yield – 8 servings

Preparation Time – 10 minutes

Cooking Time – 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 – 3 lbs. boneless ribs
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon paprika (I like to use smoked paprika)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Homemade Barbecue Sauce

  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to broil.
  2. Remove the fat from the ribs if necessary.
  3. Combine the onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, and pepper. Rub it into the meat.
  4. Broil ribs about 5 – 6 inches from flame for 10 minutes on each side.
  5. While the ribs are cooking, combine all of the barbecue sauce ingredients in a sauce pan. Cook over a medium flame until it reaches a boil. Lower flame and simmer for 5 minutes.
  6. Pour half of the barbecue sauce in a bowl and  save it for serving with the cooked ribs.
  7. Use the other half of the sauce to coat the ribs. Once the ribs are coated, broil them for 10 more minutes.
  8. Serve the ribs immediately. You can pour the remaining barbecue sauce over the ribs or serve it on the side for dipping.

I served the broiled ribs with Slow Cooker Baked Beans and a garden salad.
