Ingredients

  • 3 lbs pork back ribs centre cut removed
  • 3 lbs pork side ribs centre cut removed
Apple Butter Marinade:
  • 1/2 cup apple butter
  • 1/4 cup apple cider
  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon crumbled dried sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Method

Pour enough water into shallow roasting pan to come scant 1/2 inch (1 cm) up side. Cut ribs into 2-rib portions; place, meaty side up, in single layer in water. Cover and steam-roast in 325°F (160°C) oven until meat is tender, 75 to 90 minutes. Transfer to large glass baking dish, discarding cooking liquid.

Apple Butter Marinade: In bowl, whisk together apple butter, apple cider, vinegar, mustard, sage and salt. Remove 1/4 cup (50 mL) and reserve for basting on grill. Brush remaining marinade all over ribs. Cover and refrigerate ribs and reserved marinade for 4 hours, turning and brushing ribs with marinade in dish at least once. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Place ribs on greased grill over medium-high heat; brush with any marinade left in dish. Close lid and grill, turning at least once and basting with reserved marinade, until browned and glossy, 10 to 15 minutes.
