NEW ORLEANS –

Chef Kev’s homemade barbecue sauce

1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup tomato paste
1/4 cup Steens syrup
3 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp. liquid smoke
1 C. smoked paprika
1 C. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
Cayenne pepper for extra heat, if desired

Whisk all the ingredients together in a medium saucepan.

Cook over medium-high heat until the sauce is simmering. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes or until the sauce has thickened slightly.

Use the sauce immediately or refrigerate in an airtight container for a few weeks.

Low and slow oven ribs

2 slices of pork back ribs

Preheat your oven to 275 degrees.

Remove the membrane covering the bony side of each plate. To do this, slide the knife under the membrane anywhere along the grid. Lift it up and loosen it with the knife until you can grab it with a paper towel. Remove it from the ribs; but if it breaks, use the knife to restart at another section.

Place two large pieces of foil (stacked) on a baking sheet.

Rub one of the rib grids with your favorite sauce on both sides, then place the grill meat side down on the foil.

Place two more layers of foil on the rack. Pinch the foil all around the sides to create a “bundle.”

Repeat with the other square of ribs, rub dry and aluminum foil.

Place the two ribs baking sheets in the preheated oven. Bake for 3 1/2 to 4 hours or until the ribs are tender in pieces.

Open the packets of ribs, carefully transfer the ribs to a cutting board and cut them into pieces of one or two ribs.

Drizzle with barbecue sauce.

You can either put the ribs back in the oven at this point and place them under the grill for a nice caramelized barbecue sauce on your ribs … or you can transfer them to a preheated grill and broil for a few minutes.
