Ingredients

  • 3 lb (15 kg) pork back ribs centre cut removed
Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup blackberry jam
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons minced gingerroot
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Spice Rub:
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon dry mustard
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 teaspoons cinnamon

Method

Pour enough water into shallow roasting pan to come scant 1/2 inch (1 cm) up side. Add ribs, meaty side up. Cover and cook in 325°F (160°C) oven for 80 to 90 minutes or until meat is tender. Drain; transfer ribs to cutting board. Let stand for 10 minutes. Cut into 1-rib portions.

Spice Rub: In large glass baking dish, combine chili powder, mustard, garlic, salt and cinnamon; rub all over ribs. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Sauce: In small saucepan, combine blackberry jam, ketchup, vinegar, ginger and pepper; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, for 5 minutes. Strain through fine sieve into bowl, pressing on solids. Set aside. (Make-ahead: Let cool; refrigerate in airtight container for up to 1 week.)

Place ribs, meaty side down, on rack on foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Broil for 5 minutes.

Brush ribs with half of the sauce; broil until bubbling, about 2 minutes. Turn and brush with remaining sauce; broil until sauce forms bubbling glaze, about 2 minutes.
