Sweet Ginger Ribs

Prep Time 15 min
Yield 8 servings.


  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup peach preserves
  • 1/3 cup minced fresh gingerroot
  • 2 tablespoons stone-ground mustard
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 4 pounds pork baby back ribs


  1. In a small bowl, whisk the first 10 ingredients until blended. In a small container, reserve 1 cup marinade for basting. Divide ribs and the remaining marinade between 2 large resealable plastic bags; seal bags and turn to coat. Refrigerate ribs and reserved marinade overnight.
  2. Remove ribs, discarding remaining marinade from bags. Grill ribs, covered, over indirect medium heat 1-1/2-2 hours or until tender, basting occasionally with reserved marinade during the last half hour.
