These meaty ribs are great picnic fare. First bake them to make them tender, then simply finish them off on the grill with a fruity basting sauce.—Tom Arnold, Milwaukee, Wisconsin


  • 2 racks pork baby back ribs (4 pounds), cut into serving-size pieces
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 medium ripe peaches, peeled and cubed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice concentrate
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. Place ribs in a shallow roasting pan; add water. Cover and bake at 325° for 2 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, for sauce, place peaches in a blender; cover and process until blended. In a small saucepan, saute onion in butter until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in the lemon juice, orange juice concentrate, brown sugar, soy sauce, mustard, salt, pepper and peach puree; heat through.
  3. Drain ribs. Spoon some of the sauce over ribs. Grill ribs on a lightly oiled rack, covered, over medium heat until browned, 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally and brushing with sauce.
