for 4 servings
- 5 lb pork spare ribs (2.2 g)
- 1 tablespoon paprika
- 2 teaspoons coriander
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon chili flakes
Maple BBQ sauce:
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 onion, finely diced
- 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
- 1 cup ketchup (240 g)
- 2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce
- ¼ cup balsamic vinegar (60 mL)
- ⅓ cup maple syrup (250 g)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ cup water (120 mL)
- Preheat your oven to 300⁰. Combine the spices and brown sugar together, then rub all over the ribs. Wrap the ribs tightly in tin foil, then place on a baking sheet. Slowly roast the ribs for 2 - 2 ½ hours.
- While the ribs cook, make your maple bbq sauce. In a sauce pot, heat the olive oil over medium low heat. Add the onions and garlic and sweat for 8-10 minutes, or until softened and translucent. Add the ketchup, worcestershire, vinegar, syrup, salt, and water. Bring the sauce up to a gentle boil, then reduce to a low simmer for 35 minutes, or until the sauce has darkened and thickened.
- When the ribs are done, remove and unwrap the foil. To finish, grill the ribs on medium heat for 3-4 minutes per side, while brushing on the sauce to slightly caramelize. Serve with additional sauce on the side.
