This spicy mopping sauce moistens beef while soaking in southwest flavors.

Ingredients

1 1/2 tbsp freshly ground black pepper

2 tbsp butter (or olive oil)

1 cup minced onion

1/2 cup chopped aneheim pepper (or pasilla or green bell)

2 tsp minced garlic

1 cup beer

1 1/2 cups beef broth

1/4 cup ketchup

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

1/4 cup worcestershire sauce

2 tbsp brown sugar

2 tbsp chili powder

1 tbsp ground cumin

1 tsp black pepper

2 tsp hot sauce (or to taste)

5 lbs beef ribs

BBQ spice

2 cups apple juice

Directions

1Melt the butter over medium heat and stir in the onion and anaheim pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are softened about 6 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook one minute more.

2Deglaze the pan with the beer and the beef stock, then add the ketchup, vinegar, worcestershire, brown sugar, chili powder, cumin, 1 teaspoon black pepper and the hot sauce.

3Bring the sauce up to a boil and then simmer for 20 to 30 minutes.

4Season the beef ribs with a generous amount of bbq spice and the 1 tablespoon black pepper. Place in a deep pan meat side up with the apple juice. Brush with the mop sauce. Seal tightly and braise in a 300 degree oven for 2 hours or until tender. Remove from the liquid. Smoke/grill the ribs meat side up for 45 minutes to one hour, mopping with the sauce every 10 minutes or so.

5Cut into ribs and serve.
