Sweet BBQ Oven Baked Baby Back Ribs

Author Kelly Rowe



  • Pork Loin Baby Back Ribs (one or two racks)
  • Salt and Pepper, for seasoning


  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp vinegar
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3-4 tbsp honey
  • 1 small onion, diced (very small)
  • 1/2 cup Sweet and Sour Sauce
  • 1/3 cup Teriyaki Sauce or Marinade



  • Remove membrane and cut ribs individually.
  • Place in roaster or large baking pan with lip.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Bake at 400 for approximately 1 hour to 1-1/2 hours, turning once midway.
  • Drain off fat and cover with sauce (see recipe below).
  • Bake at 350 for an additional 25-30 minutes.


  • Place ketchup, water, brown sugar, vinegar, lemon juice, honey and onion in a pan and bring to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Add sweet and sour sauce and teriyaki sauce (or marinade). Simmer an additional 5 minutes.
  • Pour over ribs.


If you live in Canada, feel free to use the following substitutions (ingredients from the original recipe). 
- use 1/2 jar of VH Pineapple in place of the Sweet and Sour Sauce. 
- use 1/2 jar of VH Medium Garlic Sauce in place of Teriyaki Sauce or Marinade.
For the Teriyaki, I used the KC Masterpiece Honey Teriyaki Marinade.
