Ingredients

  • 5 lbs pork side ribs
  • 5 lbs pork back ribs
  • 3/4 cups apricot nectar
  • 3/4 cups apricot juice
  • 1/4 cup sodium-reduced soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 3 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/3 cup apricot jam

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 ribs to large glass baking dish, discarding liquid; let cool.

Meanwhile, in saucepan, combine apricot nectar, soy sauce, tomato paste, sugar, vinegar, garlic, chili powder and ginger; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes. Let cool.

Pour apricot mixture over ribs. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours, turning occasionally. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Or freeze in freezer bags for up to 2 weeks; thaw in refrigerator.)

Reserving ribs, pour marinade into small saucepan; add jam and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

Place ribs on greased grill over medium-high heat; baste with apricot mixture. Close lid and grill, turning occasionally, until glazed and brown, about 10 minutes.
