Maple & Orange Glazed Baby Back Ribs

Print Recipe
Serves: 6 Cooking Time: 2 hours


  • 3 racks (about 4 lb/2 kg) of Ontario pork back ribs,
  • cut into 4 rib pieces
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) fresh ginger, minced
  • 2 cloves Ontario garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) orange juice
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) orange zest
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) balsamic vinegar
  • ½ tsp (2 mL) red pepper flakes
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) soy sauce
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) Ontario maple syrup
  • ¾ cup (175 mL) beef broth



Using a fork, lift the membrane from a corner of the rib bones on the underside, gently peel it away from the ribs and discard.


In a large food-safe plastic bag place marinade ingredients: ginger, garlic, orange juice, orange zest, balsamic vinegar, red pepper flakes, soy sauce, maple syrup and beef broth; mix well. Add ribs and turn to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator for 2-6 hours.


Pre-heat oven to 325°F/160°C. Place ribs in a single layer in a baking dish, meaty side up; pour marinade over top. Cover with foil and bake in oven for about 1 hour.


Remove ribs from oven and allow them to cool. Place in refrigerator until ready to grill. Pour liquid from marinade into a small saucepan. Reduce over medium-high heat for 30-40 minutes until sauce thickens.


Pre-heat grill to medium. Remove ribs from refrigerator and brush generously with sauce before grilling. Place ribs on grill and cook until browned and heated through, about 15-20 minutes.


Cut ribs apart. Brush with more sauce if desired. Serve.


Marinating Time: 2 hours – 6 hours
