Bourbon and Brown Sugar Barbecue Ribs

My love of ribs continues with these crazy good Bourbon and Brown Sugar Barbecue Ribs!  I made these ribs for dinner on Easter, and they were amazing!!  If you do not follow me on instagram {which you should} or facebook, you may not know that I do not like ham, at all.  So we never have the traditional ham dinner with scalloped potatoes on Easter like the the rest of the country.

We have ham’s much tastier relative instead…..

If you have no desire to make your own sauce, you could  just buy a bottle of Guy Fieri’s Bourbon Brown Sugar, Sweet & Sticky Barbecue Sauce at the grocery store.  My Bourbon and Brown Sugar Barbecue Sauce is much better {Alex agrees}…..

but Guy’s is really good in a pinch.  These ribs are so easy to make, and you can finish them on the grill or under the broiler.

Start by placing your sliced onions on a baking sheet, and place the rack of ribs on top…..

These Bourbon and Brown Sugar Barbecue Ribs are sweet, and tangy with an occasional kick that kind of sneaks up on you.

Ingredients

  • 2 Large onions (sliced)
  • 1 Rack pork ribs (or ribs of your choice)

  • 1/2 cup bourbon whiskey (I used Knob Creek - 100 proof)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup Bourbon and Brown Sugar Barbecue Sauce

Directions

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Arrange sliced onion rings on a baking sheet. Place rack of ribs on top of the onion rings. If ribs do not fit, cut into two separate pieces.
Mix water and bourbon together, and pour over the ribs. Sprinkle ribs with garlic powder, onion powder, and chipotle powder.
Completely cover baking sheet with heavy duty aluminum foil, and place in the oven.
Bake for 2 hours, or until meat is tender and starts to fall of the bone.
Carefully remove baking sheet from the oven. Place ribs on a clean baking sheet or large platter, and brush with barbecue sauce.
Option 1 - Place ribs on a preheated barbecue grill to caramelize the sauce and add a smokey flavor.
Option 2 - Place ribs in oven under the broiler to caramelize the sauce.
Cut ribs in between the bones and serve with additional sauce.

Note

I used my own Bourbon and Brown Sugar Barbecue Sauce for this recipe.  If you do not want to make your own sauce, I recommend Guy Fieri's Bourbon Brown Sugar Sauce.

    Mmmm! They look sooo good! I’d much rather have these instead of ham on Easter.

    I’m adding the recipe to my Pepperplate app so I can try it myself!
