Another old recipe from my childhood in Southern Indiana.

4 lbs spareribs
1 cup water
1 cup catsup
1/2 tsp salt*
1/3 cup vinegar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 medium onion, sliced
3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp mustard
1 tsp paprika

Place ribs in a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer and cook until almost tender. Drain the ribs and place them in a shallow baking pan.

In a saucepan combine the water, catsup, salt, vinegar, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, and paprika. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook for about 5 minutes. Add the sliced onion. Spoon the mixture over the ribs and bake uncovered for about 45 minutes at 30 degrees. Baste often while baking.
