- 3/4 cup chicken broth
- 3/4 cup soy sauce
- 1 cup sugar, divided
- 6 tablespoons cider vinegar

- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1 tablespoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

- If necessary, remove thin membrane from ribs and discard. Combine broth, soy sauce, 1/2 cup sugar, vinegar, olive oil and garlic. Place ribs in a shallow baking dish; pour two-thirds of the marinade over ribs. Turn to coat; refrigerate overnight, turning occasionally. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
- Drain and discard marinade from ribs. Combine remaining sugar, salt and seasonings; rub over both sides of ribs.
- Grill ribs, covered, on an oiled rack over indirect medium heat for 30 minutes on each side.

Reviews for Marinated Baby Back Ribs
"When my youngest grandson wanted ribs for his birthday, I tried these. Everyone loved them. A big key is to not get the heat too high. You need a lower temperature to get them nice and tender without charring them. This rib recipe is going to be seen again and again this summer grilling season."
"This did not work for us. The marinade burned the meat. Needs to be grilled over indirect heat."
"We love this recipe and often make it for company."
"This recipe is a favorite of mine for company. Can't stop eating once you get started"
"We made these ribs last weekend and are making them again this weekend, they are delicious!!"
