Are looking for something special to serve family and friends this weekend? Baby back ribs are less fatty than spareribs, and this marinade is flavorful without being a heavy barbecue sauce.
1 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
4 garlic cloves, pressed
2 teaspoons grated orange peel
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, crumbled
2 pounds baby back pork ribs (about 2 slabs)
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 orange sliced and segmented
Combine first 5 ingredients in large baking dish. Add ribs and turn to coat. Cover and chill at least 6 hours or overnight.
Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). Remove ribs from marinade and season with salt and pepper. Grill until cooked through, turning occasionally, approximately 25 minutes.
Meanwhile, place marinade in heavy small saucepan. Add maple syrup and boil until reduced to 1/4 cup, about 18 minutes. Brush ribs with glaze. Grill ribs 1 minute longer and serve.
Garnish with the sliced orange segments
