Marvelous Marinades | Spicing Up Your BBQ Ribs
What’s your favorite flavor for BBQ ribs? Do you have a cherished recipe that you pull out when you barbecue, or are you always on the lookout for new tastes and combinations? There are many different ways to spice up your BBQ ribs, from the traditional to fruit infused, to the Asian inspired and beyond. The following is a list of some that we think sound pretty amazing:
- Honey Soy Appetizer Ribs are made from 2 racks of spare ribs cut in half. For the sauce, mix a cup of honey, 1/3-cup soy sauce, 3 tablespoons of sherry, 2 teaspoons of garlic powder and ½ teaspoon of dried crushed red pepper. Pour this mixture over parboiled ribs right before grilling.
- Apricot-Pineapple Sweet Ribs are seasoned with a spice rub, marinated in a sweet glaze and basted with honey-sweetened bottled barbecue sauce. The dry rub contains dark brown sugar, garlic salt, chili powder, salt, black pepper, celery salt, white pepper, red pepper and cinnamon and can be mixed together and stored in an airtight container for up to a month. This is combined with a liquid seasoning that contains pineapple juice, apricot nectar, balsamic vinegar and minced garlic. The mixture is applied to the ribs before grilling. The sweet glaze is applied after grilling, made simply by combining tomato-based barbecue sauce and honey.
- Peanut-Ginger Marinade is made of peanut butter, chili paste, soy sauce, oil, vinegar, garlic, ginger and ground red pepper. The meat is marinated in this mixture and left to soak in the flavors in the refrigerator overnight.
- Sweet Balsamic Marinade is simple and quick to make. Just mix balsamic vinegar, oil, brown sugar, sweet onion and cracked black pepper. Then, pour it over the meat and marinate it in the refrigerator for 1-4 hours.
- Wine Marinade is another simple recipe, perfect for marinating in the refrigerator. To prepare it, mix soy sauce, red wine, sugar, minced garlic, ground ginger and molasses.
- Smoke Tequila Lime Marinade can be poured into a resealable plastic bag for marinating meat in the refrigerator. It contains garlic powder, onion powder, salt, cayenne pepper, liquid smoke, lime juice, tequila, vegetable oil and cilantro. After adding meat to the bag, make sure to squeeze out the excess air.
