Caribbean Pork Ribs
with Mango Barbeque Sauce
2 ½ cups pineapple juice
1 large onion, sliced
2 Tbsp orange flavored liqueur
2 Tbsp dark rum
6 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp Jamaican Hot Pepper Sauce (or to taste)
2 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp salt
¼ tsp nutmeg
1 tsp curry powder
4 lbs baby back ribs (about 4 racks)
For marinade: Combine pineapple juice, onion, liqueur, rum, honey, pepper sauce, garlic, salt, nutmeg, and curry powder in a medium sized bowl. Marinate the ribs overnight in the marinade.
Preheat oven to 300°F. Place the ribs and marinade in a roasting pan and cover with foil. Bake in the oven until tender.
Remove the ribs from the oven and drain the liquid into a sauce pan. Bring to a boil over medium high heat and reduce until the liquid thickens. This will be used to glaze the ribs on the barbeque.
Heat a barbeque to medium heat. Grill the ribs on both sides until golden brown and brush with the reduced liquid to glaze. Serve with Mango barbeque sauce.
