Ribs n' Rice

This was my Grammie Murphy's recipe that my Aunt Joanne gave me. When I would go down to visit my grandparents, we ALWAYS had spaghetti and meatballs.  I would be disappointed if we didn't! So it was great to learn after she passed away that this recipe of hers that was a family favorite! It has now become a favorite of Pete and I! Thanks for passing this along to us Aunt Joanne!
 Preheat oven to 350 (3 hours cooking time total)
Remove membrane from back of baby back ribs. Slice up into individual ribs. Place ribs in a roasting oven pan (size depends on how many ribs are being cooked).  I use a ceramic baker from Pampered Chef.
  Cover with foil. Cook 2 hours (toss ribs at 1 hour mark). 
Remove ribs from pan and pour out juices (fat). Return ribs to pan.
Add sauce(recipe below) covering the ribs; return to oven for 1 hour
(coat ribs with sauce 1/2 way through).
Make sauce approx. 1 1/2 hours before ribs are done.
The sauce recipe is ideally for one rack of baby backs. Double it up for 2-3 racks.
1 tblsp olive oil
1/2 cup of finely chopped onions
small can of tomato sauce (8 oz)
3/4 can of water (from can of tomato sauce)
1/4 cup of ketchup
2 tblsp brown sugar
1 1/2 tblsp worcestershire sauce
2 tblsp white vinegar
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
3 shakes of paprika
Saute oil & onion in small saucepan until onion is translucent. Add all remaining ingredients. Simmer on low until 1 hour before ribs are done. Add sauce to ribs. Serve over white rice, Enjoy!
What a favorite family recipe of yours?
