Barbecue Marinade and Sauce Concoction To Build Young Bodies

This is something I no longer enjoy because I am trying to heal or at least trying to eat healthy. But one of my sons, back when he was trying to build his body mass would request me to buy him some beef ribs to barbecue. That would be for a hearty lunch that also included lettuce and cucumber salad in French dressing. His drink would be chocolate flavored whey. Whew! This is the marinade I used to do for him.

Barbecue Marinade

1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 tablespoon of fresh minced garlic
1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar or ordinary cane vinegar
1 cup of Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 kilos of beef ribs
salt to season according to your taste

Combine the olive oil, garlic, vinegar and Worcestershire sauce in a glass or a ceramic bowl. Completely coat the ribs with this mixture. Sprinkle all sides of the ribs with salt to your taste. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Grill the ribs over low heat for an hour or so or until fully cooked and tender. Turn frequently as required. Serves 6.

To complete the dish, sauce must be in order.

Barbecue Rib Sauce

Makes 5 cups

1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup of chopped garlic
3/4 cup of chopped onions
4 cups of tomato sauce
1 cup of muscuvado sugar
2 1/2 cups of water
3/4 pure honey
1/4 cup of dark molasses
1/2 cup of tomato paste
1/2 cup of balsamic vinegar
1 cup of Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup of Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons freshly milled black pepper or according to your taste
2 teaspoons of salt
1 bay leaf
3/4 cup of ketchup

Heat the oil in a heavy 4 quart saucepan over high heat. Add the chopped garlic, onion, and cook for 1 minute. Add all of the other ingredients and bring to a boil. Turn the heat to medium and cook, uncovered for about 20 minutes, stirring frequently. Cool. Remove the bay leaf.

For a growing boy, that's a good sauce for a delish barbecued ribs :-)

Serves 6.
