1
cup chili sauce
3/4
cup grape jelly
1
tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons dry red wine or Progresso® beef flavored broth (from 32-oz carton)
1

4 1/2

3

  1. To make sauce, in 1-quart saucepan, heat chili sauce, jelly, wine and mustard over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until jelly is melted.
  2. Heat coals or gas grill for indirect heat. Cut ribs into serving pieces. Place ribs in 4-quart Dutch oven; add water. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 5 minutes; drain.
  3. Cover and grill pork over medium coals 15 to 20 minutes, brushing with sauce every 3 minutes, until pork is no longer pink and meat begins to pull away from bones.
  4. Heat any remaining sauce to boiling, stirring constantly; boil and stir 1 minute. Serve sauce with ribs.

Purchasing
At last, your search is over! At the supermarket, these ribs may be labeled as back ribs or pork ribs.
Success
Follow these steps when grilling over indirect heat. Before heating a charcoal grill, place a drip pan directly under the grilling area, and arrange coals around the edge of the firebox. Grill food over the drip pan. If you have a gas grill, place the food over the unheated side.
Variation
Want to stay inside? Bake these ribs instead. Omit the water and simmering step. Place ribs on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake uncovered at 325┬║F for 1 1/2 hours; brush with sauce. Bake uncovered about 45 minutes longer, brushing frequently with sauce, until tender. Heat any remaining sauce as directed in step 4.
