Molasses Country-Style Ribs
Country-style ribs are cut from the pork loin, and have more meat per portion than pork spareribs or back ribs. Serve with Succotash (a classic Southern corn and lima bean side dish) and red cabbage slaw.
4 pounds country-style pork ribs
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/2 cup molasses or sorghum
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup ground mustard
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
4 drops hot pepper sauce
- Place ribs in a large shallow baking dish.
- In medium bowl stir lemon juice into flour until smooth, stir in molasses, soy sauce, mustard, Worcestershire and hot pepper sauce; pour over ribs, turning to coat.
- Prepare a medium fire in kettle-style covered grill.
- Grill ribs over indirect heat for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until tender. Or roast in a 350°F (175°C) oven, covered, for 1 hour; uncover and roast for another 30 minutes, until ribs are tender.
Makes 6 servings.
