Honey-Beer Braised Ribs Recipe


Honey-Beer Braised Ribs

½ cup packed brown sugar

1 tsp. pepper

¾ tsp. salt

6 lbs. pork baby back ribs

¼ cup honey

1 bottle (12 oz.) dark beer or beef broth

¼ cup cider vinegar

1 bottle (18 oz.) barbecue sauce


Combine the sugar, pepper and salt; rub over ribs.  Place ribs bone side down on a rack in a large shallow roasting pan.  Drizzle with honey.  Combine beer and vinegar; pour around ribs.  Spoon some of the beer mixture over the ribs.

Cover tightly with foil and bake at 325 F. for 1 hour. Reduce heat to 250 F.; bake 2 hours longer or until tender.

Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs coat the grill rack.  Drain ribs.  Grill, covered, over medium heat for 10-15 minutes or until browned, turning and basting occasionally with barbecue sauce.  Serve with the remaining barbecue sauce.       6 servings
