Alabama Slow Cooked Ribs

These ribs are tender and the meat falls right off the bone. This is an easy recipe to make at home. It is pretty spicy, so if you prefer it milder you can always go easy on the Tabasco rub.

  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 cups catsup
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Worcester sauce
  • 1-2 teaspoons of liquid smoke
  • 2-3 teaspoons of Cajun seasoning
  • 2-3 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • Juice from one lemon
  • Dash of tobasco


  • 1 The sauce: Dice one medium onion and saute in a tablespoon of butter.
  • 2 Add 2 teaspoons minced garlic and sauté some more. Do this in a pot big enough to hold about 2 quarts.
  • 3 Once everything is sautéed and soft: add catsup, white vinegar, Dales Steak sauce or if you can't get any, use Worcester sauce, liquid smoke, Cajun seasoning, black pepper, Dijon mustard, brown sugar, lemon juice, tobasco and cook on low heat for 15-20 minutes.
  • 4 You can start tasting after about 10 minutes of cooking and add things as needed for spice (Cajun), heat (pepper), smokiness (Liquid Smoke), tanginess (lemon), or sour (vinegar).
  • 5 The Ribs: Generously sprinkle salt, pepper, and Cajun seasoning on the ribs and then rub them with Tobasco sauce. Then put them in an oven at about 200ºF for several hours and then dump them in the sauce to sit for a while longer and then sear them on the grill.
  • 6 This is pretty spicy, so you can always go easy on the tobasco rub or the pepper.
