Glazed BBQ Ribs

Yes, these racks would taste wonderful hot off the grill, but you can really enjoy these sweet, fall-off-the-bone ribs any time of the year. The raspberry preserves give my BBQ (and now yours) that lil’ something extra! —Stephen Marino, Nutley, New Jersey
  • Total Time
    Prep: 2 hours Broil: 10 min.
  • Makes
    6 servings


  • 2 racks pork baby back ribs (about 5 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 cup seedless raspberry preserves
  • 1/4 cup dry red wine

  • Combine remaining ingredients, reserving 3/4 cup sauce. Brush some of remaining sauce over ribs. Bake, uncovered, 25-30 minutes or until ribs are glazed, brushing occasionally with additional sauce.

    These ribs looked beautiful and tasted so good. I didn't miss the grill at all. I was hoping they were a little spicier, but I can ramp up the cayenne next time.....and there will be a next time.

    Sauce had a wonderful flavor. Loved the flavor the preserves brought. I had used Sonny's brand for the bottled sauce. We finished them on the grill instead of the broiler. Rib preparation yielded tender and juicy ribs.

    No leftovers tonight! These ribs are delicious. I baked them for about 3 hours before adding the sauce. Can't wait to make them again.

    I made these ribs for this past July Fourth and my family and guests raved about them! I also used Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce and doubled the recipe for the 8 lbs. of ribs I used. Cooking the ribs in the house freed up my grill for the other meats I served. However, I skipped the broiler part at the end of the recipe and finished the ribs on the grill for 10 minutes before serving. Fall-off-the-bone delicious!

    This is a great recipe. I used Sweet Bay Ray's Raspberry BBQ sauce and Polaner sugar free preserves. The rest of the recipe I didn't change. Great reviews from all my guests.

    Great idea. I've done the same with peach preserves(but with a bit of peach schnapps )
