Maple Syrup Pork Ribs


6 lbs pork ribs
2 cups (500 mL) maple syrup
1 cup (250 mL) water
2 tbsp (30 mL) chili sauce
2 tbsp (30 mL) Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp (2 mL) dry mustard powder
1 large onion, chopped
1 dash freshly ground pepper


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. 

To prepare pork ribs, cut into single ribs or small serving sizes with a sharp knife. Leaving space between if possible, place ribs on a large non-stick roast pan or use racks with jelly roll pans underneath. (Tip: line the pans with foil and spray racks with cooking oil for easy clean up.) 

Roast in the oven for 30 minutes, turning once halfway through. 

Meanwhile, prepare sauce. In a heavy bottom saucepan, combine maple syrup, water, chili sauce, Worcestershire sauce, dry mustard powder, chopped onions and ground pepper. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat if necessary and boil gently, uncovered, for five minutes, stirring occasionally. Sauce will thicken slightly. 

Drain ribs and place meaty side down, in a shallow 4-litre baking dish. Pour sauce over ribs. Bake uncovered, in the center of a 350 degree oven for one hour.
