Ingredients

  • 4 lbs. baby back pork ribs Salt and pepper
  • 2 1/2cups fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar or honey
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chili sauce
  • 6 T red wine or cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup chopped white or yellow onion
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place ribs in a single layer in a shallow baking dish, dust lightly with salt and pepper, and bake until halfway done, approximately 30 minutes.
  • While the ribs are baking, combine the rest of the ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook until cranberries pop.
  • Spoon the cranberry mixture into a blender, and carefully blend in small batches until all the sauce has been pureed. (You can also use a stick or immersion blender to puree the sauce.) Return the sauce to a pan over medium heat and allow to simmer and thicken, about 20 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Drain any juices from the partially baked ribs. Pour sauce over ribs and bake until pork is no longer pink, about 15 minutes.
