Grilled Maple-Glazed Spareribs

I love maple syrup and so does my family, so I gave this recipe a try. It's well worth the effort! I make these ribs often, and I never have leftovers. With two teenage boys who like to eat, this main dish is a real winner.—Linda Kobeluck, Ardrossan, Alberta

    6 servings


  • 3 pounds pork spareribs, cut into serving-size pieces
  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons thawed orange juice concentrate
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 green onions, minced
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted


  • Place ribs, meaty side up, on a rack in a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Cover pan tightly with foil. Bake at 350° for 1-1/4 hours or until tender; drain.
  • Meanwhile, combine the next nine ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

    At first I was skeptical, but I was totally wrong. It was so delicious that my husband and I prepared it twice within two weeks of each other. We didn't have the sesame seeds and it was so flavorful.
