American Style Pork Ribs

Pork ribs are an occasional treat in our house I have to admit. While they are a "sometimes" food due to its fat content, its also unfortunately one of my favourite comfort meals.

They are beautiful and sticky, perfect with a side of onion rings and a beer. Definitely not for anyone watching their waste line. So its no surprise that by now I don't even bother measuring my ingredients and they turn out just the way I like them.

And if you want to have a little fun and "spice" up your marinade feel free to add some Jack Daniels. Makes for an awesome flavour hit.

I don't know the exact weight of how many ribs I use, but the pack I usually buy (from Western Fresh for anyone in my area) has 6 in there. I find that 2 is just enough for one person, any more than that and you will start to feel greasy. But this recipe is easily adjusted to more or less.

6-8 Pork ribs - Rind on is better if you can get it.
1 cup BBQ sauce
1/4 cup honey
2 tbl spoons Worcestershire sauce (or soy sauce..........yes it works)
2 tbl spoons white vinegar
1 tsp powdered mustard (or 1-2 tbl spoons Dijon/American mustard)

1. Mix the BBQ sauce, honey, worcestershire, vinegar and mustard in a bowl. Stir until well combined.
Place the ribs in a baking tray. Pour the marinade over the ribs and place in the fridge to marinate for at LEAST 2-3 hours, but overnight is even better.
2. Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees. Take the baking tray out of the fridge and allow it to come to room temperature before placing in the oven.
3. Cook for 1 hour and 30 mins. Making sure to turn them half way through. If the sauce still seems a bit runny then cook for longer. You want the meat to be nice and tender and the sauce to be sticky.
4. Serve with a side of onion rings, chips or salad (but why bother hey?)

Enjoy :)
