Honey-Glazed Baby Back Ribs Recipe

Adapted from Food and Wine October 2012
Serves 2 | Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 2 hours and 5 minutes


1 rack baby back rib, halved lengthwise
Salt to taste
2 tablespoons honey for broiling

Marinade Sauce:

1/4 cup hoisin sauce
2 teaspoons unsulfured molasses
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped peeled fresh ginger
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (or 3 garlic cloves, minced)
1 tablespoon sambal oelek/Chinese chile-garlic sauce


Mix all the ingredients for the Marinade Sauce in a bowl. Stir well to combine.

Lightly season the baby back rib with salt, to taste.

Brush the ribs evenly with the Marinade Sauce on both sides and marinate for at least 8 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.

Preheat the oven to 325°F (160°C). Line a large baking sheet with heavy aluminum foil, lay the ribs on top, and tightly cover with foil. Roast for 2 hours.

Remove the ribs from the oven and uncover. Brush the ribs with the honey.

Transfer the ribs to the broiler and broil at 500°F (260°C) for 5-6 minutes or until the ribs are glazed and browned to your liking.

Slice them into individual ribs and serve hot.

Cook’s Note:

If you prefer, you can use pork spareribs instead of the baby back ribs.

    I made a recipe of honey glazed baby backs last week. I doubled the amount of honey. These are delicious. Thank you for your recipe. I’ll use it next time. I do baby backs a couple of times a month.

      If you peel off the membrane from the back of the ribs, the sauce gets to the meat better and just increases this lovely flavor.
