- 2 1/2 lb1.25 kgCanadian Pork Rib Country Style
- 1/4 cup50 mLred wine vinegar
- 1/4 cup50 mLbrown sugar
- 1/4 cup50 mLfrozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
- 3 Tbsp45 mLtomato paste
- 2 Tbsp25 mLmolasses
- 1 tsp5 mLground black pepper
- 1/2 tsp2 mLground cumin
Combine all ingredients except pork in a medium bowl; reserve 1/2 cup/125 mL of marinade. Place ribs in a glass or ceramic baking dish; pour remaining marinade over. Turn several times to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours to overnight.
Preheat barbecue on high; reduce heat to medium-low. Remove ribs from marinade, discarding marinade. Wipe dry with a paper towel. Grill for 1 1/4 hours, basting frequently with reserved marinade for the final 20 minutes, turning every 5 minutes until ribs are tender and internal temperature has reached 160°F (71°C). A basting sauce with sugar, like this one, will burn easily. Grill over low heat, turn frequently, and pay careful attention. Or roast at 325°F (160°C), basting throughout, to an internal temperature of 160ºF (71ºC). Allow ribs to rest for 15 minutes, covered, then slice between bones and serve.
In a hurry? For all rib recipes, instead of making your own sauce use your favourite barbecue sauce; mix in a few tablespoons of cider vinegar.
Elegant variation: Cut ribs lengthwise to make long steaks; grill slowly and baste with sauce for the final few minutes.
