  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard


  • 1. Cut ribs into serving-size pieces; place in a large resealable plastic bag. Combine remaining ingredients; pour half the marinade over the ribs. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for several hours or overnight, turning bag occasionally. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.

"I used a little less sugar and honey and a little more garlic, and threw in a 1/4 of chili powder (we wanted a little more kick than sweet), and they were still too sweet and the garlic got lost. They turned out very dry. The recipe didn't really make enough sauce to marinade overnight and then baste while cooking. Also, when I got to the 30 minutes of cooking it uncovered, some of honey in the sauce stuck to the pan and burnt. I might try these again, but they weren't that great."

"I love this recipe. I make it using Country Pork Ribs so the time is different on the cooking. I also add some other ingredients, worshier sauce, Ponzu Sauce, onion powder, Dales, Teriyaki sauce. Pepper, and salt as well. I just eyeball everything

The recipe as itself is pretty good I just like to add stuff to make things taste better :3"

"My husband's family and my family both adore this recipe and I always have to make extra. I do marinade my ribs for 48 - 72 hours, as a simple overnight marinade leaves something to be desired in the flavor department. Over all, a very easy to make recipe with fantastic results every time."

"The marinade is very viscous and I wasn't sure if it would work, but it turned out OK. However, I have rib recipes which are just as easy and taste better, so I probably won't make this again."

"i put these in the marinade about 2 hours ago.  Got the recipe from the big TOH book.  What a coincidence. Hopefully they taste as good as they look"
