Perfect Apricot Glazed Ribs

As much as we love cooking, we love eating even more. So today we’re sharing a super easy, and delicious recipe: Perfect Apricot Glazed Ribs!

Step One: Trim the Meat

You want to make sure you get rid of all of the extra fat. Emphasis on the extra because you do still want to have some fat in your meat. During the cooking process, the fat will help the meat retain moisture and help keep the meat from drying out. So don’t go crazy with trimming here.

Step Two: Roast the Ribs

Once you’ve trimmed the excess fat from your ribs, place them on a baking sheet and add 2-3 tablespoons of white vinegar. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and place into the oven.

Let the ribs roast for 1 hour at 350 degrees. At this point, the ribs are fully-cooked and should pretty much fall of the bone. But let’s be honest-they look ugly and are pretty tasteless. So let’s fix that!

Step Three: Make the Apricot Glaze

During the last 10 minutes of roasting, you’ll want to make the sauce for glazing your ribs. Combine the following into a saucepan and cook over low heat for 7-8 minutes:

  • 1 cup Apricot Jam
  • 2 Tbsp Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Freshly Grated Ginger

*Side-note: You can double this recipe and use half for dipping sauce!

Step Four: Hit the Grill

While the ribs are finishing up roasting, pre-heat the grill to a steady medium heat. Like we said before, the ribs are fully cooked when you pull the out of the oven. So at this point we’re not trying to cook them. We’re only going to give the ribs a much-needed facelift and lots of flavor.

Occasionally turn the ribs and glaze every few minutes. Be careful not to burn the glaze. Once you start to see a nice golden color appear, you’ve achieved the perfect apricot glazed ribs! Remove the ribs from the grill and serve with any remaining apricot glaze you have left.
