Find me something that these perfect little gems don’t go with, and I’ll be very surprised.

Sticky, sweet and self explanatory. 5 ingredients. Falling off the bone tender. Crazy delicious. All of these things. These will make you a rib hero (and quite likely piss off your ‘real bbq takes hours & hours to make') friends.
- 2 racks pork back ribs, about 4 pounds
- 1 1/2 cups barbeque sauce, plain
- 1/4 cup pancake syrup
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 4 tablespoons white vinegar
- Mix sauce, syrup and brown sugar, set aside
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees
- Place ribs in their racks (I just mean do not cut them) in a large baking/casserole dish
- Pour vinegar into dish with ribs and cover tightly with aluminum foil
- Bake about 75 minutes or until very tender
- Remove from oven and carefully lift off tin foil - watch out for steam
- The ribs are now fully cooked and just need to be 'sauced' finished' and you have 2 options:
- 1. Heat bbq to medium and place ribs meat side down without sauce - but you can baste the back with the sauce
- Cook until they start to develop grill marks, and turn over - now baste the top
- You could stop here after they grill a bit on this side, or you could baste them a bit more and then give them a couple more minutes meat side down - that's what I do
- 2. Heat broiler to high and place ribs on a baking sheet about 4 inches from the heat source
- Brush top of the ribs well with the sauce and cook until they start getting a bit brown - then flip to the back, sauce and cook some more
- Flip back to the top (sauce again) and cook until they get that beautiful rib look
- Then, no matter how you cooked them, give 'em one extra baste them after they've been removed and just before you serve them.
Elevate your wing game with this simple little change-up
Making your own dressings is the best - and I love this one.
- ¼ cup light miso paste
- 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- ½ cup neutral oil (I used avocado oil for this one, canola or vegetable works well too)
- 2-3 tablespoons of water
- Honey (optional)
- Fresh ground pepper to taste
- Combine first 5 ingredients in a bowl, mix into a thick paste
- Slowly whisk in oil until the dressing is emulsified
- Add 1 tablespoon water at a time to thin dressing to your liking - at this point you can add a little honey if you want on the sweeter side
- Add pepper to taste
- Use the dressing on your favorite salad, grilled vegetables or even fish.
The spice of the pork and the sweet of the pineapple makes an outrageous combination.
BTW, this is a rerun episode.
