BBQ Rib Roast

BBQ'd ribs is one of our favourite meals
Today I made it for our busy Saturday
early supper
We weeded and mulched the flower gardens all morning
and afternoon whilst the ribs roasted
in the oven!
The recipe for this is adapted from one 
I have had for many years from my sis Evelyn!
My husband once told me to throw
away all my other rib recipes and just 
always make this one - so I guess it's the one 
I'll always make?  It is an easy - fall off the bone - recipe!

1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. celery salt (or celery seed)
1/4 Cup brown sugar
1/4 Cup vinegar
1 Cup ketchup (great way to use up the "almost" empty bottle)
2 Cups hot water
2-3 cloves garlic - crushed
1/4 tsp. pepper
Mix the above ingredients and pour over the ribs.  Bake covered at 350F for 3 hours (basting occasionally).  Uncover and broil a bit in the last 5 minutes, if needed, to get a nice glazed coating.  Enjoy with your favourite side dishes and treat your best little pal with at least one bone :).

After dinner we treated the birthday boy to 
one of the most moving films I've seen in a long while
at the Princess Theatre
"Monsier Lazhar"
It's a must see, awarding winning
Canadian Film!
 I still have a lump in my throat!

Till next time..........heating up the sauna to sooth these old aching muscles - too much gardening for one day!


  1. Your ribs look delicious. We had ribs last night, on the barbecue, but I'd like to try cooking them in the oven. I'm aching from gardening too - we got a lot done!

  2. My hubby loves ribs, too...this may make our menu the oven version :)

  3. April 27 was also my granddaughters 3rd birthday,I had to show her how eat a really good cake,she seemed to get as much cake on her as she ate,not so with me every fork full went right where it was supposed to ,I loved that cake it was a great birthday,hope you enjoyed the day.bye for now

  4. Oh I am hungry for ribs too! That's the only trouble with ribs: if one gets a craving one must wait at least three hours to get some.

  5. It sounds very much like our favorite rib recipe. And now I'm hungry for ribs!

  6. Oh, you don't want to know my story...I made those on Sunday...and took the lid off and scalded my arm...OUCH and I can't claim a sick day..but they bandaged it for me at work yesterday, as the arm rests on the computer pad..and it was so sore....but it was worth the effort. We licked them dry.

    1. Oh no Marg!!! Are you alright??? Do you work in a hospital? I'm so sorry - sure hope you're O.K.

  7. Rosella,
    The rib roast sounds delicious as I love BBQ sauce. What size roast do you use with this amount of sauce? Janet Weber, PA
