- 8 pounds pork baby back ribs, cut into serving-size pieces
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup lemon juice
- 1/2 cup light corn syrup
- 4 garlic cloves, peeled
- 2 tablespoons ground ginger
- 1 tablespoon onion powder

- Place the ribs in two shallow roasting pans; add water. Cover and bake at 325° for 2 hours.
- For sauce, in a blender, combine the lemon juice, corn syrup, garlic and seasonings; cover and process until blended. While processing, gradually add oil in a steady stream.
- Drain ribs. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Spoon some of the sauce over ribs.
