Maple Glazed Ribs

Y'all know that I have a bunch of rib lovers in our house.  When we splurge for ribs we have a go-to recipe, Sweet & Spicy Double Cooked ribs.  The other day, we were having company for dinner and ribs were on the menu.  Our kids have been on a "no-spicy" kick, and just in case our guests weren't keen on spicy, I needed to find an alternative for them.  Enter this recipe for Maple Glazed ribs.  Here is what I did:

Maple Glazed Ribs | Addicted to Recipes
3/4 cup (real) maple syrup
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard powder

3 pounds baby back ribs (boiled for 1 hour)

In a saucepan and over low-medium heat, combine the maple syrup, brown sugar, ketchup, cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, salt and dry mustard powder.  Stir well.  Increase heat to medium and bring the sauce to a sow boil.  Allow sauce to boil for about 5 minutes, stirring often.  Remove from heat and have the sauce cool for about 10 minutes. 

Take the ribs and put them into a Ziploc bag or a container with a lid.  Pour the sauce over the ribs, and allow the ribs to marinate in the sauce for at least 2 hours.

When it's time to eat, grill the ribs on your BBQ over indirect heat until desired doneness. Take the leftover sauce and put into a saucepan and bring to a boil again.  Use the sauce to glaze the ribs.

Our kids loved these.  Their new favourite ribs!  I'm still a fan of the sweet & spicy ribs, but these are a great alternative or addition for the littles and non-spicy liking company :-)

  2. YUM, your rib pic has me salivating.

    What's the difference between back and side ribs? More meat and more tender?
