I really wanted to try something new for dinner the other night, so I decided on RIBS! YUM! I found a great Alton Brown recipe that seemed good but I wanted to try something a little more spicy. So I changed the recipe a little and came up with this! Try it, you'll like it.
Sam's SPICY Baby Back Ribs
1 rack of baby back pork ribs
3 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp 5 spice powder
1/4 tsp cayenne
1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1/2 cup white wine
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp Worcestershire
1 tbsp honey
1 clove garlic, whole and crushed
Place meat on heavy duty tin foil large enough to wrap completely around the rack.
Combine all dry rub ingredients. Rub each side of the meat with rub (you may not have to use all the rub but you can save for another time.) Place meat with foil packet loosely wrapped on a large sheet tray and refrigerate for at least one hour.
Pre-heat oven to 250 degrees and move rack to middle of oven. Combine all braising liquids and heat in microwave for 1 minute. Mix completely.
Add braising liquid to the foil packet, making sure to surround meat with all the liquid. Braise in the oven for 2.5 hours.
Transfer the braising liquid to a medium saucepan and simmer over medium heat to reduce by half. With brush, glaze the ribs with about half the amount of glaze. Place under broiler for a few minutes until caramelized. Cut the ribs and toss with remaining glaze.
Serve with beans and potato salad and pretend you are picnicing in the good ol' summertime!
