Sacramento Brewing Company Baby Back Ribs

Barbecue Sauce Ingredients:

  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tbsp cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp liquid smoke
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp McCormick cayenne pepper

Ribs and Marinade Ingredients:

  • 3 cups Sacramento Brewing Company's Red Horse Ale
  • 1/3 cup liquid smoke
  • 2 lbs baby back ribs or beef ribs
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced
  • 4 cloves Christopher Ranch garlic, halved
  • Meat rub


To prepare barbecue sauce, sauté onion in butter until soft, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 30 minutes.

To prepare ribs, combine beer and liquid smoke. Pour over meat and let stand 10 to 30 minutes.

Drain meat and place 2 cups marinade in the bottom of a roasting pan. Place meat on a rack in roasting pan. Place onion slices and garlic cloves on top of meat. Cover pan with foil and bake at 300° F for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until tender. When cool enough to handle, rub ribs with meat rub. Serve with barbecue sauce.
