This one has been my favorite for a long time.
first the story:
it's 1975 and Joe Stellini, maitre d' of the hip hopping Luau restaurant in beverly Hills is on his way out. So what does he take with him? The Kuau barbecue Sauce, the recipe that made his employer rich and famous.
The recipe soon made Stellini's own restaurant in beverly Hills famous. many celbrities such as Sylvester Stallone wouldn't dream of a Monday night football game at Stellini's without the ribs.
Stellini's "Luau" Barbecue Sauce
2 cups tomato ketchup
1/4 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 cup Chinese barbecue sauce
2 tablespoons dry white wine
20-25 beef ribs
Combine ketchup, sugar, garlic, barbecue sauce and wine. Pour over beef ribs and marinate several hours or overnight in the fridge.
When ready to cook, remove ribs and place on grill over medium hot coals or under broiler 4 inches from source of heat. Cook, basting often with marinade until browned and done as desired. makes 6 servings at 4 ribs per person.
