If you’re coming to this site to find hot peppery marinades and rubs, you’re in the wrong place. But I would definitely encourage you to try one of my sweet marinades or rubs, rather than just going elsewhere.
If you really need to, you can always add some heat to it, but try it straight up sweet once, and see if it ain’t the best rib marinade you’ve ever used.
2 full racks of baby back pork ribs
2 cups orange juice (pulp free)
1 cup water
1 cup Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 teaspoons kosher salt
The first thing you want to do is remove the thin membrane from the back, or bone side of the ribs. This is actually very easy to do. It’s getting it started that’s kind of tricky. I start on one end of the rack, and work a sharp knife under it just enough to get a flap up. Then just grab it and pull the entire thing off.
Now, mix all the other ingredients together in a bowl. Put the ribs into a container that will fit the ribs fairly tight, so you aren’t wasting space covering the ribs. Pour the marinade over the ribs. This should sufficiently cover all of the ribs. Put the lid on the container, and put this into the refrigerator over night. Approximately 12 hours.
