Honey And Molasses Marinated Barbecue Rib Recipe

Serves 4

3 lbs pork ribs, country-style


½ cup yellow onion, finely diced
1 cup ketchup
1/3 cup honey
¼ cup dark molasses
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon paprika
¼ teaspoon cumin
¼ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
(optional) ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  or 2 tablespoons Tabasco or similar hot sauce

Combine marinade ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well. Cover both sides of pork ribs thoroughly with marinade. Cover, place in refrigerator, and marinate for 4 hours. Remove barbecue ribs from refrigerator and discard marinade.

Cooking barbecue ribs on the grill is preferred to cooking them in the oven. Both methods are given below. Cooking time is approximately the same for each method.

Cooking Method 1

Place pork ribs meat side down over medium heat. Grill approximately 3 minutes to sear the meat. This will ensure that the ribs stay moist and juicy. Turn ribs over and cook slowly over indirect heat for about an hour. Barbecue ribs are done when the meat pulls easily away from the bones.
Cooking Method 2

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cover ribs and cook for 30 minutes. Uncover, reduce temperature to 325 degrees, and cook for an additional 20-30 minutes. Alternatively, you can remove from oven after ½ hour and finish on the grill as above.
