BBQ Ribs In Apple Juice

IMG_0246It is SO EASY to make these BBQ Ribs! A good friend showed me how to do this, and the other day I was pureeing up some of my leftover apples from last fall’s crop (we have a number of apple trees on our property), and we figured it was time to make up some ribs!

The video below pretty much spells it out, but just in case you can’t see the vid, here’s the method:

  • 1 rack of ribs, cut into sections that will fit in a large stock pot, and trimmed of whatever fat you can slice off.
  • Apple juice (or apple juice and some water if you don’t have enough juice) to cover the ribs
  • About a tablespoon each of garlic powder and onion powder
  • My friend adds some liquid smoke, but I don’t use that – add some if you like!

Boil the mix for about 90 minutes, until completely cooked and tender.

While the ribs are boiling, prep up whatever sauce or rub that you like. Although I don’t really measure, I make up a little BBQ sauce with:

  • Ketchup
  • Mustard
  • Maple Syrup
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  • Garlic Powder
  • Onion Powder

Once the ribs are done boiling, coat them in your sauce/rub, and either grill them for a few minutes on each side or put in a 350 degree (F) for about 15 minutes or so – and then to just crisp them up a little, you can put them under the broiler if you like!

Serve and enjoy!
