AIP Grilled Pork Ribs with Maple Glaze
♥ RECIPE & IMAGE BY: AIPRecipeCollection.com ♥ Drool worthy ribs the whole family will love! Shhh! They won't even know they're AIP.
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 2 tsp dried thyme
- 1 tsp Himalayan salt
- 1/2 tsp ground black pepper (stage 1 reintroduction)
- 1 cup maple syrup
- 3 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 shallot, minced
- 2 Pinches of Himalayan salt
- Thaw your truLOCAL ribs in the refrigerator overnight or
defrost in their packaging in cold water.
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Remove ribs from packaging and pat dry.
- Optional, but recommended: When preparing pork ribs, take a minute to remove the ‘silver skin’. This is a thin membrane on the underside of the rack. Simply slide a knife under the silver skin anywhere along the rack and peel it away. Go here for a simple tutorial that might just put a smile on your face!
(We found that our truLOCAL ribs had very little silver skin.)
- Mix all spice rub ingredients together in a small bowl.
- Massage both sides of the ribs with the spice rub. Place ribs on a
parchment lined baking sheet and tent (not wrap) with aluminum foil.
- Roast for 1 hour in a 350F degree oven.
- While ribs are roasting, combine all glaze ingredients in a small,
heavy bottomed sauce pan, place over high heat and bring to a boil. Lower heat
and simmer uncovered until mixture is reduced and slightly thickened,
approximately 10 to 15 minutes. Set aside.
- If you're serving AIP Grilled Vegetables along side your ribs, you can use this time to prep them. (Once it's time to grill the ribs, both the ribs and your veg can be grilled at the same time.)
- Remove ribs from oven after 1 hour, set aside.
- Preheat an outdoor grill to medium-high.
- Place ribs on the preheated grill and brush with glaze, allowing
glaze to caramelize. Turn every few minutes continuing to brush with glaze.
Reduce flame or move ribs to cooler spots on your grill to avoid burning or
flareups. Continue basting and turning for approximately 3-5 minutes using all
of your glaze or until ribs are thoroughly coated and caramelized.
- Remove from heat and serve immediately.
This ribs can be cooked just in the oven if you don't have a BBQ or the weather isn't cooperating.
After 1 hour, the ribs are fully cooked. Simply brush with glaze and cook them under the broiler for 5 minutes, brush with more glaze and broil for 5 minutes more allowing the glaze to caramelize. Keep close watch that they don't burn.
