Servings: 4-6

2 racks pork ribs (about 3-4 pounds each)



1 cup of red wine

1 cup brown sugar

¼ cup apple cider vinegar

¼ teaspoon allspice

1 can tomato sauce

3 tablespoons tomato paste


Preheat oven to 250˚F/125˚C.

Clean the ribs (remove membrane or score) and pat dry.

Place the ribs in a foil-lined roasting pan, and season both sides with salt and pepper.

Add about ¼ inch of water (about ½ cup) to the pan.

Seal the top of the roasting pan with foil and bake for 2 hours or until ribs are very tender.

Place wine, brown sugar, vinegar, tomato sauce, tomato paste, and allspice in a saucepan.

Simmer the sauce for at least 45 minutes and season to taste. The sauce should be rich and thick.

Raise oven to 350˚F/180˚C.

Remove ribs from roasting pan. Pour off all fat and water, and baste ribs with sauce.

Bake an additional 20-30 minutes. (You can stop and re-baste halfway through.)

Cut ribs and serve with additional sauce.
