Sun Oven BBQ Pork Ribs

Ingredients:

  • 4 country style Pork Ribs with lots of meat
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 pints tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup dried tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup dried zucchini
  • 1/4 cup dried banana peppers
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp dry mustard
  • 1 T worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp salt
  • dash or two of pepper
  • 1/4 cup vinegar

First place your sun oven out to preheat while you put together your dish.

Place meat in bottom of pot. Chop onion and add to meat.

Mix a bbq sauce, home dried style!

Bring 2 pints tomato sauce, dried tomatoes, zucchini, peppers to a simmer.

Feel free to add other dried veggies to the mix. If you don't have fresh onion you can add dried onion. Dried carrots works, dried greens would add some nutrition to the mix as well.

Simmer for 10 minutes. Add vinegar, brown sugar, dry mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper.

Mix well. Pour over meat and onion.

Cook until meat is done.

On this particular day I was going to town for a few hours. I place the oven out about 10:00am until around 4:00pm. During the part of the day when I was not home I faced the oven so that it was directed to where I know the sun would be at it's strongest. Thus the oven was at it's highest heat for only part of the day.

Slow cook it in a Sun Oven. 

On this particular day I was going to town for a few hours. I place the oven out about 10:00am until around 4:00pm. During the part of the day when I was not home I faced the oven so that it was directed to where I know the sun would be at it's strongest. Thus the oven was at it's highest heat for only part of the day.

Basically I used the sun oven like a slow cooker. It cooked low for most of the day reaching a peak and then cooking low again and staying hot until supper time.

This worked well for this particular day. On some occasions I am home and can monitor the oven. I refocus it every 30 minutes to an hour. This maintains a higher heat and the cooker cooks quicker.

Do what makes sense for your situation. The main goal is cook until the meat is done and enjoy a tasty dinner!
