It was a beautiful spring day here in upper Michigan and the thought of firing up the grill got me excited. I marinated the ribs overnight and it was time to get the grill ready. I just love this time of the year when everything starts turning green, but the weather is still cool enough you can really enjoy it. This Grilled Honey Garlic Country Ribs Recipe does not have a lot of actual prep time, but you do have to allow enough time for the marinade. I planned this ahead- so I allowed 24 hours. But you can prepare it in less time; if you don’t have the time to spare. I served the ribs along with a potato, onion and mushroom packet cooked on the grill. Enjoy
3 lbs pork ribs
3/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup liquid honey
3 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon dry mustard
6 garlic cloves, minced
1. Trim fat from ribs.
2. Place the ribs in a large pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil and skim off foam, reduce the heat, cover and simmer for about 40 minutes or until ribs are fork tender. Drain the ribs and refrigerate until ribs are cooled.
3. In a large reseal able freezer bag or large bowl combine ketchup, honey, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard and garlic, and mix until blended.
4. Add ribs turning to coat. Seal the bag and marinade in fridge for 4-24 hours-if you have time; the longer the better.
5. Reserve the sauce in bag, place ribs on greased grill over medium high heat. Cook brushing often with reserved sauce and turning once, cook 10 to 15 minutes, or until browned.
