You need barbecue sauce in Iowa. In 2011, Iowa ranked first among states in pig and hog inventory, and those baby back ribs aren’t going to season themselves.
As long as we’re talking about barbecue sauce, check out the recipe for lemon barbecue sauce from the July 1951 Good Housekeeping that Joani left in a comment!
From the box of D.W. from Cedar Falls, Iowa.
2 cans Hunts tomato sauce
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 tsp. salt–Dash pepper
2 tsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 dashes Tabasco sauce
Combine ingredients. Cover; simmer slowly until onions are tender, about 30 minutes. Serve hot on hamburgers, chicken cutlets, etc. Makes 1-1/2 cups.
May be made up ahead and kept in refrigerator.
