Honey Garlic BBQ Ribs



3-4 pounds of pork ribs (back or side ribs)
2 tbsp powdered ginger
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 to 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp ground thyme
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
2 tbsp olive oil
3-4 cloves of minced garlic
1 cup of honey
1/4 cup of low-sodium soy sauce
1 tsp ground black pepper

Create the dry rub: In a small bowl, blend together the powdered ginger, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, black pepper, ground nutmeg, ground thyme, and kosher salt until thoroughly mixed.

Create the glaze: In a medium saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and sauté for a few minutes, ensuring it doesn't brown. Stir in the honey, soy sauce, and ground black pepper. Allow everything to simmer for around 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens slightly. Take it off the heat and allow it to cool down for a few minutes.

Prep the ribs: Remove the silver skin from the ribs' back to prevent curling and to let the spice mix flavor both sides. Generously rub the spice mix all over the ribs, then wrap them in plastic wrap and refrigerate for several hours or overnight for enhanced flavor infusion.

Cook the ribs: Preheat your oven to 225 degrees F. Position the ribs on a wire rack over a baking sheet and bake for 8-9 hours, depending on the thickness. During the final hours, brush the glaze onto the ribs, turning them every half hour to establish a sticky glaze.

Serve and savor: Once the meat is tender and detaches effortlessly from the bone, your honey-glazed pork ribs are ready. Let them rest for 10 minutes before serving to allow the juices to settle.

For optimal results, choose pork ribs that are meaty and well-marbled.
If you fancy spicier ribs, sprinkle some extra cayenne pepper into the sauce.
In the absence of hoisin sauce, consider substituting with oyster sauce or barbecue sauce.
You can store leftover ribs in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
