- 2 baby back pork ribs
For the pork rib glaze:
- 605ml tomato ketchup
- 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tbsp pure maple syrup (preferably amber syrup for its rich taste)
- 2 tbsp cider vinegar
- 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
- 1 tbsp smoked paprika
- 1 tsp dried oregano leaves
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- Pre-heat oven to 160C/Gas 3
- Combine all glaze ingredients together and gently warm on a low heat in a pan
- Add a splash of water to keep consistency pourable yet glossy. Leave 1⁄4 of glaze for later
- Lay ribs on a baking tray and fully coat with glaze using a pastry brush. Cover with foil and oven bake for 2 hours
- Remove ribs from oven and coat with the remaining glaze. Return re-glazed ribs uncovered to the oven and bake for a further 25 minutes, until crispy edges appear and caramelised sauce shows
- Serve with a tangy homemade slaw and garnish with chopped spring onions
These baby back ribs, generously coated in a caramelised maple glaze, are oozing with personality. Canadian maple syrup serves as the key ingredient in this flavour-packed pork ribs recipe, adding a splash of natural sweetness to these smoky, sticky wings.
