This amazing rib recipe is adapted ever so slightly from the maple-glazed ribs on Allrecipes. Please note that the Cook and Prep times do not include marinating. If possible, plan ahead and marinate the boiled ribs for a full 24 hours.
Serves: 6 servings
  • 3 pounds baby back pork ribs
  • ¾ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon mustard powder
  1. Place the ribs in a large pot, and cover with water. Cover and simmer for 1 hour, or until the meat is tender. Drain and transfer the ribs to a shallow dish.
  2. In a small saucepan, whisk together the maple syrup, brown sugar, ketchup, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and mustard powder. Place the pan over medium-low heat and bring it to a low boil. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  3. Let the sauce cool for 10 minutes, then pour it over the ribs.
  4. Refrigerate the ribs for at least 4 hours, but preferably overnight.
  5. Prepare your grill for cooking with indirect heat. Remove the ribs from marinade.
  6. Transfer the excess marinade to a small saucepan, and boil it for 5 minutes, stirring often.
  7. Cook the ribs on your grill for about 20 minutes, basting with the cooked marinade frequently, until nicely glazed.
Oven Option: You can skip the boiling process, and jump to the marinating process. Then bake the ribs in a 250ºF oven for 3 hours, basting with the excess sauce periodically, or until quite tender.
