Sunshine Baby Back Ribs

Sunshine Baby Back RibsA citrus-and-mint-laced sauce gives a fresh new personality to ribs on the grill. Serve with Fruit Salad with Creamy Poppy Dressing and warm dinner rolls.

Recipe Ingredients:

4 slabs pork back ribs, about 6 pounds
Kosher or sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon minced fresh mint
1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
2 cups orange juice
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 teaspoon grated lime peel
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel

Cooking Directions:

  1. Combine cornstarch, brown sugar, mint and salt in medium saucepan; gradually stir in orange and lime juice. Cook, stirring, until thickened, about 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in lime and lemon peel; set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 250°F (120°C).
  3. Lay ribs on two large shallow pans; salt and pepper to taste. Roast for 3 hours, until tender.
