Lemon-Ginger Barbecued Ribs Recipe

Lemon-Ginger Barbecued Ribs Recipe

Although my husband does most of the cooking for us, the kitchen is all mine on weekends! I was inspired to make this recipe for a family member who's allergic to tomatoes.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. Cook: 2 hours 10 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 8 pounds pork baby back ribs, cut into serving-size pieces
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons paprika
  • 3/4 cup canola oil

Directions

  • 1. Place the ribs in two shallow roasting pans; add water. Cover and bake at 325° for 2 hours.
  • 2. For sauce, in a blender, combine the lemon juice, corn syrup, garlic and seasonings; cover and process until blended. While processing, gradually add oil in a steady stream.
  • 3. Drain ribs. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Spoon some of the sauce over ribs.
  • 4. Grill, uncovered, over medium-low heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 8-10 minutes or until browned, turning occasionally and brushing with sauce. Serve remaining sauce with ribs. Yield: 8 servings.
