Gooey Country Ribs
15 Min

Traditionally, ribs are one of the ultimate finger foods, but these over-sized Gooey Country Ribs that are smothered in a rich maple glaze may just have us breaking out our forks and knives!

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1 1/2 to 1-3/4 pounds country-style pork ribs

What to Do

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. 

  2. In a small bowl, combine maple syrup, Worcestershire sauce, and hot pepper sauce; mix well. 

  3. Grill ribs 15 to 20 minutes, or until no pink remains, occasionally basting with the sauce and turning ribs over. Do not baste for the last 5 minutes of cooking, to avoid cross-contamination.








We like to be sure these are cooked to well done because the syrup will caramelize and have loads of flavor. And with a side of cool and crunchy coleslaw, you'll be happy as...well, you'll be very happy!

For some reason I'm no longer getting notifications in my inbox when somebody has posted in re to my questions. I didn't see the Test Kitchen's response until just now. Un- fortunately, my ribs are already in the oven and I'm again guessing at what to do: to cover or not to cover?? At first, I didn't cover them, but decided they'd be really tough if in the oven that long without covering. Don't know if that's the reason my glaze is as thin as water?? It was already too thin when I first applied it. I used real maple syrup - not pancake syrup. Would that make it too thin? So far, I'm not happy with these! I'm sure they'd be better on a grill although I'm always leery of doing pork on a grill. Sorry! I really, really wanted to like this!

Refraining from rating because I have the same question as wadechkiburn. His question, though posted in 2011, has not been answered as far as I can tell. I would also like to make these in the oven - don't have a grill.

You can prepare these in the oven. Cook them at 350 degrees F. for 1-1/2 hours or until tender. Bake with no sauce for the first hour, then baste with sauce every 10 minutes until cooking is finished. Enjoy!
