Iola Engle of Bella Vista, Arkansas first marinates racks of ribs, then adds a zesty rub before grilling them. They turn out moist and flavorful.
- 3/4 cup chicken broth
- 3/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 6 tablespoons cider vinegar
- 6 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 racks baby-rack ribs (about 4-1/2 pounds)
- SEASONING RUB:
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 tablespoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- Dash cayenne pepper
- In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Pour two-thirds of the marinade into a 2-gal. resealable plastic bag; add ribs. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate overnight. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
- Drain and discard marinade from ribs. In a small bowl, combine the rub ingredients; rub over both sides of ribs.
- Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill ribs, covered, over medium heat for 20 minutes on each side.
- Baste with reserved marinade. Cook 20-40 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 160° and pork is tender, turning and basting occasionally. Yield: 4 servings.
