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