- about 3 lbs of pork riblets – separated into 3 or 4 chunks
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp smoked paprika – I used La Chinata Sweet Smoked Paprika.
- 1/4 tsp freshly ground coriander
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 2 tsp Ancho chili powder – I used Royal Command Ancho Chili Powder.
- 1/2 tsp ground mustard
- 1 tsp freshly ground pepper
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1/4 cup white wine – other options for liquid are water, beer, red wine, stock, liqueur, spirits
- 1/2 tbsp Napa Jack’s Original BBQ Sauce
- 2 heaping tsp Haskapa Jam
- 1/2 tbsp white wine
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Prepare an ovenproof baking dish by brushing with a light coating of olive oil.
- Prepare a tasty spice rub by combining cumin, smoked paprika, coriander, sea salt, Ancho chili powder, mustard, pepper and sugar.
- Coat ribs on both sides with spice preparation, press in and rub well into the meat.
- Pour white wine into baking dish and arrange spiced ribs in baking dish.
- Cover tightly with foil and cook in a 350 degree F oven for about 25 – 30 min.
- Prepare glaze for riblets by whisking together in a small bowl – BBQ Sauce, Haskapa Jam and white wine, until well combined. You could also add any of the optional ingredients listed above.
- Remove riblets from oven, brush generously with glaze, and place riblets on a hot, preheated grill, with top side facing down.
- Brush other side with glaze while top side is grilling.
- Allow to grill until nice grill marks are formed – about 3 min.
- Tip: Rotate 1/4 turn to get crosshatch grill marks.
- Turn riblets over and repeat grilling to get grill marks and then crosshatch.
- Tip: This happens very quickly, so it’s best to monitor closely, so the meat doesn’t burn.
- Transfer riblets from the grill to a serving tray. Save remaining basting glaze for dipping or for diners to add to their meat or rice, at the table.
I served these fantastic riblets with nice, fluffy rice and grilled smoked paprika spice rubbed corn-on-the-cob.
