Southern Style Ribs in Mom's Barbecue Sauce

This sauce can be used for several different dishes in addition to Southern Style Ribs. I've also used it in Homemade Sloppy Joe's and for pulled pork sandwiches.

Here's a picture of the sauce before it is put on the ribs.

Cook your ribs first. Season with salt & pepper. Bake, covered, at 375 degrees for one and one-half hours. Drain grease. Cover ribs with sauce, cover dish with foil, and bake an additional hour at 375 degrees. Remove from oven and enjoy!
Mom's Barbecue Sauce
1/2 cup canola oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 & 1/2 cup catsup
1 & 1/2 cup water
2/3 cup lemon juice
6 Tablespoons sugar
6 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
4 Tablespoons prepared mustard
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
Cook onions in oil over medium heat until tender, but not brown. Add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. For Sloppy Joe's, omit oil, increase amount of onion and do not simmer. Just add sauce to your ground beef mixture.

This sauce looks good. I like that it isn't overloaded with sugar like so many other BBQ sauces.

I am going to try this the next time I go to the grocery. It looks like a great sauce to use for so many things. Thanks.
