Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1 tablespoon coarse kosher salt
1 tablespoon (packed) golden brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons dry mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 2- to 2 1/4-pound racks baby back pork ribs
1 large onion, sliced
1 cinnamon stick, broken in half
6 thin rounds peeled fresh ginger
1 1/4 cups apple cider


For ribs:

Mix first 7 ingredients in small bowl.

Using small sharp knife, loosen membrane from underside of each rib rack and pull off (or score membrane).

Rub 1 tablespoon seasoning mix into each side of each rib rack.

Place ribs in large roasting pan.

Cover and chill at least 6 hours and up to 1 day.

Preheat oven to 325°F.

Lift ribs from pan. Scatter onion, cinnamon stick, and ginger in pan.

Pour in cider.

Return ribs, meat side down, to pan; cover pan with foil.

Roast ribs until meat is tender and begins to pull away from bones, about 2 hours. Uncover; cool at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours.

Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat).

Grill ribs until heated through and slightly charred, about 5 minutes per side.

Brush generously on all sides with basting sauce.

Grill until sauce becomes sticky glaze, about 3 minutes longer per side.

Transfer rib racks to cutting board.

Cut racks between bones into individual ribs. Arrange on platter and serve, passing remaining sauce separately.
