What's for dinner? BBQ Ribs in the oven with mashed potatoes & peas

BBQ Ribs

serves 4

1 side baby back pork ribs
2 scallions cut in 2" pieces
2 cloves minced garlic
2 T chili sauce or salsa
2 T ketchup
4 T soy sauce
2 T water
2 T corn syrup
1 t salt
2 T honey

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Fill baking pan with 2" boiling water, add ribs and bake 1 hour.

Combine scallions, garlic, chili or salsa, ketchup, soy sauce, water, corn syrup and salt. Remove steamed ribs to a shallow pan (or just drain the water like I did so I didn't have to dirty another pan) and cover with sauce. Bake 2 hours on 275 degrees. Turn ribs occasionally and baste with sauce while they are cooking.

Brush both sides with honey. Increase heat to 375 degrees and brown for 10 minutes. Turn ribs and brown 10 more minutes. (I left mine for longer and burnt them. So only do 10 min.)

Serve with sides of your choice. I made peas and mashed potatoes (with skins). Other good choices would be collard or turnip greens, salad, corn, creamed corn, corn on the cob, baked potato, steamed vegetables, squash casserole, scalloped potatoes, pureed cauliflower, homemade bread, etc.
