Now that her eyes are opened to the supernatural world around her, Sookie has her pick of gorgeous men. That trace of faery blood is certainly a draw, but Gran would surely claim that these luscious ribs deserve some of the credit, too.

Just how many love interests has Sookie had? Let’s make a list: JB DuRone, Bill Compton, Sam Merlotte, Eric Northman, Alcide Herveaux, John Quinn, Calvin Norris. Gran would be proud.

6 lbs bone-in country style pork ribs, browned in a skillet on all sides.
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup ketchup
1 cup water
1/4 cup vinegar
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons dry mustard
1 teaspoon paprika


1. Mix all ingredients except ribs in a bowl.

2. Place browned ribs in baking pan; pour sauce over and around ribs.

3. Cover with lid and bake in a 325 degree oven for about 2 hours.
