- 4 pounds baby back pork ribs
- 2/3 cup water
- 1/3 cup red wine vinegar

- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup cider vinegar
- 1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 cup prepared mustard
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place ribs in two 10 x 15 inch roasting pans. Pour water and red wine vinegar into a bowl, and stir. Pour diluted vinegar over ribs and cover with foil. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes. Baste the ribs with their juices halfway through cooking.
