Spicy Honey Mustard Ribs
2 pounds country-style spareribs, bone in (or your favorite ribs)
1 cup honey mustard
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon Sambal Oelek (ground fresh chile paste)
¼ cup soy sauce
2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon coriander
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons fresh ginger, minced
Remove the membrane from the underside of the ribs and place ribs on a pan.
Combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl. Stir well to incorporate all of the flavors. Coat the ribs evenly on both sides with the sauce and marinate from 15 minutes up to 12 hours.
Heat your grill to medium (325 degrees). Brush the grill with a flavorless cooking oil, and then lay the ribs meaty side up in the center of the grill. Every so often, baste the ribs while cooking with the extra sauce. Grill the ribs until the meat begins to shrink from the ends of the rib bones.
Approximate Grilling Times:
• Pork baby back ribs and country-style spare ribs, 75 minutes
• Spareribs & beef ribs, 90 minutes
• Lamb ribs, 40 minutes
To serve, cut each side of ribs in half, into three sections, or into individual ribs. Serve at once.
