You will need 6-8 pounds baby back ribs, 4 lemons-sliced, 4 large onions-sliced, 4 cups ketchup, 1 and 1/3 cups Worcestershire sauce, 4 teaspoons chili powder, 4 teaspoons salt, 12 drops Tabasco, 8 cups water, 5 tablespoons brown sugar and 5 tablespoons apricot jam.
Preheat your grill or oven to 450 degrees. Place ribs in a shallow pan, meaty side up. Place lemon and onion slices on top of ribs and roast for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, salt, Tabasco and water in a pot. Bring to a boil and set aside.
Remove ribs from grill or oven and discard lemon and onion. Pour sauce over ribs and continue baking for 40 minutes at 400 degrees. Baste every 15 minutes.
Remove ribs from pan and add brown sugar and jam to sauce. Return ribs to pan and bake for 1 and ½ -2 hours or until meat falls off the bone. Trust me, it will fall off the bone!
This recipe serves 6-8 people. Bring your ribs over to my place. Manny will greet you at the door with a delicious Bloody Mary to kick things off.
Welcome, my human family. I have long been an admirer of your great nation. I have to say that I am very troubled about the direction your country is taking under the non-leadership of your President Obama. Your President and the First Lady have embarked upon already adding insult to injury by telling Africans that they should be very wary of exploitation by other countries, including the United States. This is yet another extremely expensive example and opportunity for your President to throw your country under the bus. He told the people of Africa that they would always find a friend in the United States of America. The problem, as I see it, is that the people of America do not have a friend in this President.
While the Obamas are tripping the life fantastic in Africa, your fighting men and women and their families will not have the pleasure of enjoying Independence Day fireworks shows on military bases. Your President Obama seems to relish depriving the military of things they deserve. First it was a hot meal in Afghanistan and now it’s July Fourth celebrations. Instead of spending 100 million dollars on a lavish vacation, I respectfully suggest that the First Family should have stayed home and visited some military bases and hospitals to spend the Fourth of July with the soldiers and their families who sacrifice so much to keep America free.
I think your President Obama is using this unnecessary trip as a get out of town card. After all, under his watch Americans are being spied upon, the IRS is abusing their power by abusing you, ObamaCare is a disaster that can’t even be implemented because it is so riddled with problems, a guy with an incriminating flash drive is circling the globe with all your secrets, your economy is still hobbling along and the unemployed are still unemployed.
Instead of facing the music, the Obamas are off in Africa offering to help African countries prosper. I ask you, Mr. President Obama, what about the American people?
Let us pray…Manny
