Ribs don't have to be a pain to make and a homemade sauce is a lot easier to make than you think. So, Jan has brought in a recipe for Caramel Glazed Pork Ribs that will sure to be great for the whole family. They are super delicious too.
Caramel Glazed Pork Ribs
4 pound pork ribs, cut into about 3 or 4 portions (I used baby back ribs)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 cup beer (I used Anchor Steam Lager)
1/4 cup bourbon (I used Jack Daniels)
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons tomato paste or ketchup
1/2 teaspoon packed fresh grated ginger
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons Sriracha sauce
1 teaspoons Dijon or brown mustard
1 teaspoon sea salt (I used Pink Himalayan)
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, optional for more heat.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a dutch oven or heavy bottomed saucepan, over high heat, stir granulated sugar with 1/2 cup water until sugar dissolves, then bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and cook, stirring only a few times, until liquid is a rich amber color like maple syrup, about 10 minutes. (Don't burn the sugar)
Turn off the heat and stir in the brown sugar and beet. The mixture will steam and may harden at this point. (It will dissolve as it heats back up).
Stir in the bourbon, tomato paste or ketchup, vinegar, ginger, soy sauce, Sriracha, mustard, salt, pepper and optional red pepper flakes, stirring until ingredients are combines.
Place ribs in the pot and bring sauce to a boil.
Of course, Jan has provided a video to show you just how easy this recipe is.
