SPICY BARBECUED RIBS

1 c. catsup
2 tbsp. of Worcestershire sauce
1/4 c. prepared mustard
1 tbsp. Tabasco sauce
1 1/2 tbsp. cider vinegar
1 tsp. sugar
3/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ground pepper
3 to 4 lbs. country ribs


Combine catsup, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, vinegar, Tabasco sauce, sugar, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place ribs in shallow baking pan. Bake, uncovered for 15 minutes. turn over and bake 15 minutes longer. Remove from oven. Reduce oven to 325 degrees. Spoon half of the barbecue sauce over the ribs. Bake, uncovered for 20 minutes. Turn and brush remaining sauce over ribs. Bake until glazed well and done, about 20 minutes. To test for doneness, make a cut near the center of a meaty portion and be sure no pink remains. Or, place partially cooked ribs on a grill, brush on half of the reserved sauce and barbeque for 10 minutes. Turn over, brush on remaining barbeque sauce, and barbeque for 10 minutes longer. Yield: 4 portions; 1 1/2 cups sauce.
