There’s no way that these championship-winning ribs won’t impress whoever you cook them for. They’re incredibly sweet, smoky, and succulent.

Beef Ribs with Sorghum Glaze

Unless you’re from the South, you probably don’t use sorghum often — but this sweet, golden syrup is perfect for ribs. It adds a unique and complex flavor that’s hard to achieve with honey or molasses.

Talk about delicious. These flavorful ribs are seasoned with a dry rub before they’re grilled, basted with a beer sauce as they cook, and finished with a coating of sweet and smoky barbecue sauce.

You’d better make a double batch of these sweet and sticky ribs. They’re cooked in cherry cola and then covered in an irresistible and easy-to-make sauce that’s spiked with Jägermeister. The result? A rack of fall-off-the-bone, finger-licking good ribs.

These ribs are easy to make indoors. They’re cooked in a Dutch oven until they’re tender and then finished under the broiler, giving them a thick glaze and a little bit of crispy caramelization.

The only thing you need to add to these delicious ribs is a side of coleslaw and some freshly baked cornbread and you’ve got the perfect meal!

Spice-Rubbed Beef Short Ribs

If you love beef brisket, you’ll love these meaty oversized ribs. They’re tender and juicy and they pack all of the amazing flavor of slow-roasted barbecued ribs.

You’ll be surprised how much flavor you can pack into these ribs with just a handful of ingredients. The secret is the Chinese five-spice powder. If you can’t find it, substitute a blend of equal parts ground star anise, cloves, cinnamon, Szechuan peppercorns, and fennel seeds.

Tamarind-Braised Short Ribs

Cooking these ribs at a low temperature (and for a longer period of time) makes them fall-off-the bone tender. A mix of balsamic vinegar, dark brown sugar, tamarind paste, and white wine give them a sweet and delicious flavor.
