serves 4-6

  • 4-5 lbs of country-style, bone-in ribs
  • salt & pepper (1/2 Tablespoon each)
  • 1 (8-ounce) jar Strawberry-Jalapeño Jam


Rub ribs down with salt & pepper; arrange meat side up on a heavy rack in a rimmed baking sheet. Cover with aluminum foil and let sit until room-temperature or about 30-40 minutes.  Preheat oven to 300 degrees.  Cook ribs for 1 hour in the center of oven.

Remove ribs and brush with half the jam; return to oven un-covered and cook for 1 1/2 hours, or until the bones start separating from the meat.

Remove ribs from oven and tent tightly with foil (cover the pan with two brown paper bags and crimp to seal, if available); allow to rest for 40-60 mins.

Move oven rack to the upper 1/3 (or near broiler) and crank the heat up to broil.  Transfer ribs to a foil lined cookie sheet. Spread remaining jam on ribs and cook under the broiler for 4-6 minutes, or until bubbly, caramelized, and starting to crisp along edges.

Serve warm.

This sweet, spicy jam makes these pork ribs over the top. Plus it made some killer Chinese stir-fry as leftovers.

I love how jam makes everything better,
