Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 pounds pork baby back ribs
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons molasses
  • 1 tablespoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons thawed pineapple juice concentrate
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon stone-ground mustard

Directions

  • 1. Pat ribs dry. Combine the molasses, garlic salt, onion powder and Worcestershire sauce; spoon over meat. Place ribs on a rack in a small shallow roasting pan. Cover and bake at 325° for 50-60 minutes or until tender.
