Maple, Rum and Sweet Spices Ribs

Servings : 2 à 3
: 20 minutes
Cooking time 
: 3 heures


  • 800 g pork back ribs
  • ½ cup (125 ml) of maple syrup
  • 1/2 c. (2.5 ml) ground ginger
  • 1/2 c. (2.5 ml) freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/2 c. tea (2.5 ml) cinnamon
  • 1/2 c. (2.5 ml) or less cayenne pepper

Sweet Sauce

  • 200 ml of apple juice
  • ½ cup (125 ml) of rum
  • ½ cup (125 ml) of maple syrup
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) of cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. (30 ml) good quality balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 300 ○ F (150 ○ C). Line the bottom of a roasting pan with parchment paper and place the pork ribs on it. Combine maple syrup, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon and cayenne pepper and brush both sides of the meat with this mixture. Cover the roasting pan with foil and bake for 2 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, add the apple juice, rum, maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper to a saucepan. Bring to boil then reduce to medium. Let it simmer over low heat for 30 minutes while stirring occasionally. The liquid will decrease by half and become syrupy. Put aside and let it cool down.
  3. Remove the ribs from the oven and set the heat to 350°F (180°C) or light the barbecue and wait until it reaches 400°F (205°C). Brush both sides of the meat generously and put the roasting pan in the oven uncovered or place the ribs on the grill, reducing the burner to a low intensity.
  4. Cook for 10 minutes. Brush the meat again but reserve some sauce for later. Let it cook for another 10 minutes. Brush the meat once more and serve immediately.
