Several years ago, we were fortunate enough to have access to the best baby back ribs ever, thanks to a home grocery delivery service called “Webvan”. Unfortunately, the people who launched the company went money hungry and blew through their profits long before they were ready to establish the company firmly. As a result, Webvan went belly-up.
Nonetheless, we had some great culinary experiences thanks to the quality of the meat they provided, and came up with a pretty delicious recipe for ribs. I miss those ribs… and I hope this works for you.
- 2 racks baby back ribs
- 1/2 c white dry wine, beer, or stock
1 tbsp (heaping) Jack Daniels mustard
1 tbsp (heaping) Korean teriyaki sauce
- BBQ Sauce:
- 1 tbsp Soy Sauce
1 tbsp Molasses
- Marinate ribs for 2 hours or so (overnight is nice, but unnecessary)
Parboil ribs in the marinade. Add water if necessary to cover ribs.
Remove ribs. Reduce marinade by half
Add molasses, more soy to taste (1 tsp or so) until salt level is nice. Continue reducing, and start bbq on low heat.
Bbq over low heat, basting often with reduced marinade.
