Makes: 6 to 8  servings Prep 25 mins Bake 250°F2 hrs Grill 30 mins


  • 2 tablespoons  olive oil
  • 2 large Vidalia onions, chopped
  • 1/3 cup  firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 14 1/2ounce can tomatoes in puree, undrained
  • 1/2 cup  bourbon
  • 2 tablespoons  Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons  Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon  horseradish
  • 1/2 teaspoon  salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon  freshly ground pepper
  • 4 pounds  country-style pork ribs


1. Heat oven to 250 degree F. In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, add olive oil and saute onions until translucent, 5 minutes. Remove from heat, add the brown sugar and stir until melted, 2 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, bourbon, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, horseradish, salt, and pepper. Working in batches, transfer marinade to a food processor and blend until well mixed, about 2 minutes. Repeat with remaining marinade. Return marinade to the skillet and cook over medium heat until boiling. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 10 minutes.

2. Place ribs in a deep baking dish. Cover with marinade and bake, covered, until tender, 2 to 2-1/2 hours. (Increase oven temperature to 275 degree F after 1 hour of cooking.)

3. Prepare a covered grill for direct grilling. Grill ribs over low heat, uncovered, 30 minutes, brushing with marinade every 5 minutes and turning halfway through. Slice ribs individually and serve. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
