Ribs are an all time favorite of summer get-togethers. The most common way to cook ribs is via the barbecue. This can be very messy when the ribs are heavily marinated, and the marinade can burn when using a honey-marmalade mixture. When marinating ribs, a person can usually get away with doing it for 2 to 3 hours, but for best results, let the ribs soak in the juices for 24 hours.
Things You'll Need
- 1 cup soy sauce
- ½ cup orange marmalade
- ¼ cup pineapple juice
- ½ cup honey
- 5 cloves minced garlic
- 1 tbsp. minced ginger
- 4 lbs. ribs, fat trimmed
- 2 large bowls
- 2 (1-gallon) plastic food bags
- Aluminum foil
- Shallow rimmed pan
- Cooking rack
Combine all ingredients, except the ribs, into a large bowl. Mix well. This is your marinade.
Rinse the ribs and pat dry with a paper towel. Place half of the ribs in each of the 1-gallon plastic bags. Pour half of the marinade into each bag. Seal the bags. Place the bags into a large bowl to help catch any possible leakage.
Place large bowl into the refrigerator overnight. Turn every 4 hours to let the marinade soak into the ribs evenly.
Line the shallow pan with aluminum foil and place the rack on top of the foil.
Preheat the convection oven to 350 degrees F.
Remove the ribs from the refrigerator and place them in a single layer on the rack. The edges of the ribs should be pointing down. Pour the marinade out of the plastic bags into a large bowl.
Bake the ribs for 1 hour and 15 minutes, basting them every 20 minutes.
Remove the ribs from the convection oven, cut and serve.
