Maple-Glazed Back Ribs

Ingredients

1/3 cup of brown sugar
1 tbs of garlic powder
1/2 tbs of onion powder
1 tsp of cayenne pepper (more if you like it spicy)
1 tsp of coarse black pepper
1 tsp of sea salt
1/4 cup of maple syrup

Preparation

1
Preheat oven to 375F degree. Poke holes through the ribs membrane with a small knife.
2
In a bowl, mix together brown sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, coarse black pepper, and sea salt. Season the ribs on both sides with the rub.
3
Cover and seal the ribs with tin foil (you might have to use 2 sheets of foils). Place the covered ribs on a roasting pan with the membrane facing up. Bake for 1 hour or until the meat starts to pull away from the bone.
4
Carefully uncover the foil and brush both sides of the ribs with maple syrup. Place the uncovered ribs back in the oven and bake for 5 minutes.
5
Remove the ribs from the oven. Brush the front side of ribs with maple syrup. Turn the broiler to high and broil the ribs on top rack for 3-4 minutes or until browned. An alternative to this is to use a flame torch to brown the ribs.

 



About

This is another maple-glazed recipe! You can tell how much I love maple syrup. These sweet, salty, and spicy ribs are so easy to make. Optional: you can recycle the juice from the ribs for use on a vegetable side dish (see picture above). From my point of view, nothing should go to waste.

I usually make ribs that fall off the bone, but this time I wanted to make the meat a little more chewy for texture. It requires less oven time with a higher temperature. I really like that because it saves an hour of cooking time.
