sticky oven ribs, from food and drink magazine
(I made these ribs at Easter, they were very delicious)
2 racks meaty pork ribs (4 to 5 lbs)
1 cup chicken stock
preheat oven to 375°
cut ribs into halves and fit into a single layer in a large roasting pan, meaty side down. pour broth over and tightly cover pan with tin foil. bake for 1 hour. ( I increased the amount of ribs, so I cooked them for 2 hours, my pan was double layered)
1 tbsp onion powder
2 tsp paprika and garlic powder ( I used smoked paprika)
1 to 2 tsp cayenne
1tsp black pepper
1 tsp salt
remove ribs from pan to cool. line a big baking pan with sides with tin foil. increase oven temperature to 425°
stir rub ingredients together.
dry ribs with paper towels. sprinkle and press the rub onto the meaty areas and put only a slight amount on the bony side. cut into single ribs.
Prop meaty side up single ribs against each other in the foil lined pan. bake uncovered for 30 to 35 minutes until browned and sizzling. drain fat from pan.
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup chili sauce or ketchup
1 1/2 tsp dijon mustard
1 tbsp cider vinegar
mix slather ingredients. slather meaty tops with 1/3 of the sauce. bake uncovered for 5 minutes. then turn ribs on their side and slather with 1/3 of the sauce, bake 5 minutes. finally turn ribs to the other side and slather one more time, bake 5 minutes or until glazed.
