Glazed Country Pork Ribs

Total Time

Prep: 30 min. Bake: 1-3/4 hours


4 servings

I'm the designated camp cook when my buddies and I go hunting and fishing. I started with a basic recipe, then modified it to suit my tastes. The ribs are melt-in-your-mouth tender and coated with a mild sweet sauce.—John Brink, Harrison, South Dakota


  • 2 pounds bone-in country-style pork ribs
  • 1-3/4 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 bay leaf


  1. Place ribs on a rack in a foil-line shallow roasting pan; sprinkle with 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 30 minutes. Turn ribs. Reduce temperature to 350°; bake 30 minutes longer.
  2. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine the orange juice, lemon juice, brown sugar, garlic powder, lemon zest, ginger, cloves, bay leaf and remaining salt and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Discard bay leaf.
  3. Remove ribs from rack; drain drippings. Return ribs to pan; brush with sauce. Bake, uncovered, for 45-60 minutes or until tender, turning and basting often.
