Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Heat oil in saucepan and add onion, garlic, and green pepper. Cook for 2 minutes. Stir in brown sugar; when dissolved, add lemon zest and juice, ketchup, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, cayenne, and tarragon. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes.

Place rack in roasting pan and brush with oil. Place ribs on rack and season with salt and pepper. Brush with a little sauce. Cook for 1 1/2 hours, basting every 15 minutes with sauce.

Remove and section ribs. Serve sticking out of mashed potatoes, to resemble a hedgehog.
