Barbecue Beef Ribs Recipe


Ingredients for Barbecue Beef Ribs Recipe

  • 3 to 4 pounds beef back ribs (about 8 ribs)

Rub for Beef Ribs

  • 1 teaspoon dried red pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

Barbecue Sauce Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 finely chopped jalapeno chile
  • 1 large white or brown onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard


  1. Combine the salt, pepper, chili powder, and dried red pepper and rub onto the ribs.
  2. Cook the ribs on a very low barbecue heat for an hour. Check for tenderness; they may need to cook for an additional 30-40 minutes depending on heat and how thick they are.
  3. Once you have started the ribs on the grill, place all of the barbecue sauce ingredients in a small saucepan. Blend and cook over very low heat until the flavor is mellow and tasty.
  4. When ribs are about 10 minutes from being done, brush the sauce over the beef and increase the heat to allow the sauce to brown.
