APRICOT GINGER STICKY RIBS

APRICOT GINGER STICKY RIBS 


The Ribs:

5-5 ½ pounds baby back pork ribs

2-3 tablespoons Dish off the Block Ragin’ Cajun Spice Blend


The Glaze:

1 ¼ cups apricot preserves

1 heaping  tablespoon minced ginger

6 cloves garlic, chopped

2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed

1 tablespoon soy sauce


Rub the ribs all over with the Cajun spice mix.  Lay them in a roasting pan or on a foil-lined, rimmed baking sheet and cover tightly with foil.  Marinade in the refrigerator for 4 hours or overnight.  Bring to room temperature 30 minutes before cooking.


Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Place the ribs in the oven, still covered tightly with foil, and bake for 11/2 hours.


While the ribs are cooking, combine the apricot preserves, ginger, garlic, brown sugar, and soy sauce in a saucepan.  Cook for 3 minutes over medium heat, stirring frequently until the preserves are melted and syrupy.


Remove ribs from the oven after 1 ½ hours and brush with the glaze, reserving about ½ cup.  Increase oven temp to 375 and cook ribs, uncovered, for an additional 30-40 minutes until fragrant, sticky and the meat falls off the bone easily.


Remove from oven and brush with the remaining sauce.  Garnish with fresh basil or parsley and cut into 2-3 rib pieces.
