These hearty ribs and beans are my husband's favorite. Tender country style pork ribs and beans are baked in a sweet homemade barbecue sauce.

  • pounds country-style pork ribs
  • ¼ cup water
  • 14 ounce can tomato sauce
  • cup brown sugar
  • 1 package onion soup mix
  • 2 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • teaspoon hot sauce, adjust to taste
  • 2 cans kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cans great northern beans, rinsed and drained
  • cups celery, diced small
  • 1 sweet red pepper, diced


  • Place the ribs in a 9 x 13 casserole dish. Add the water over and cover with foil. Bake at 350°F for an hour and a half.
  • Drain the ribs, setting aside about 1 cup of the liquid (add more water if you don’t have quite enough). Set the pan of ribs aside.
  • In a large saucepan, combine the reserved liquid (plus water as needed), tomato sauce, brown sugar, onion soup mix, mustard, and hot sauce. Bring to a simmer. Set aside 3/4 cup of this sauce.
  • Add the beans, celery, and red pepper to the saucepan, stir to combine. Add the bean mixture to the ribs in the baking dish. Brush half of the reserved sauce over the ribs.
  • Return to the oven and bake an additional 45 minutes. During the last 10 minutes of baking, brush them again with the remaining sauce. Serve immediately.
