Top Rated Baby Back Rib Recipes

These ribs were so good that after the first time I made them, I made them again only one day later. For barbecue sauce inspiration, my favorites are my Kansas City-style sauce with a smoked tomato base, and my Carolina Style sauce with a vinegar and mustard base from The Kitchen Pantry Cookbook.

Spice rubbed baby back ribs with homemade red wine BBQ sauce Recipe
By
These ribs are amazing. So tasty and a great depth of flavor from the combination of the rub and the sauce. Slow cooking the ribs first makes them juicy and tender. I definitely recommend taking the extra time to make your own sauce - the red wine makes it more of a sauce than a condiment, if that makes sense. We served them with grilled asparagus and fried onion strings.

Maple-Syrup Baby-Back Ribs
Yes you can use a rub, bake, go low and slow, but sometimes you just want to throw some meat on the grill slathered with sauce (hey, it’s yours, if you want that black crusted charred effect and don’t mind cleaning the grill that’s your choice, that’s what being an adult means anyway right, there’s nobody there to tell you can’t). This marinade is fun because it’s something you can pretty much pull together from pantry ingredients and leftover condiments. Spicy, tangy, with just enough sweetness — you knew there was a reason you kept all those soy sauce packets. Click here to see Cooking with Maple Syrup — 8 Recipes.

Spicy Cherry-Glazed Baby Back Ribs
If we were in Mexico, these tender Yucatán-style baby back ribs might well be wrapped in leaves and cooked in a deep pit. Barring a hole in your backyard, the ribs are encased in traditional banana leaves, covered with spices and orange juice, and slowly baked with a zesty cherry glaze. Spareribs are a great icebreaker and add a fiesta-like atmosphere to any dining event. Click here to see the Chefs' Favorite At-Home Recipes story.
