Applebee's Baby Back Ribs Recipe
Baby Back Ribs are the most popular item on Applebee’s menu. They are offered in both appetizer and dinner portions.
They are incredibly easy to make at home. The BBQ sauce is surprisingly simple and has only 6 — count them 6! — ingredients.
I usually make 2 batches of the sauce. One for basting and another for dipping the ribs in at the table.
- 3 racks of Baby-Back Pork Ribs, each rack cut in half (about one pound each)
- 1 cup Ketchup
- 1/4 cup Cider Vinegar
- 3 tablespoons Dark Brown Sugar
- 3 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
- 1 teaspoon Liquid Smoke
- 1/2 teaspoon Salt
- Put ribs in a large pot with water to cover. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 1 hour or until meat becomes fork-tender.
- Mix remaining ingredients in a medium saucepan.
- Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered, stirring often, 30 minutes or until slightly thickened.
- Preheat broiler.
- Line broiler pan with foil for easy cleanup.
- Place ribs, meat side down, on broiler-pan rack, brush with 1/2 the sauce and broil 4 – 5 inches from heat source for 6 – 7 minutes.
- Turn ribs over, brush with remaining sauce and broil 6 – 7 minutes longer or until edges are just slightly charred.
Makes about 4 servings for normal people or 1 serving for a True BBQ Fanatic.
Takes about 1 1/4 hours with about 4 minutes actual work time.
