Updated Feb 11, 2010

Ingredients

  • 3 lb pork baby back ribs (ask butcher to cut ribs in half horizontally)
  • 1 tablespoon garlic-pepper blend
  • 1/3 cup maple-flavored syrup
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons hot chili paste
  • 3 tablespoons molasses
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar

Steps

  • 1
    Spray inside of 3- to 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Cut ribs between bones into individual pieces. Place riblets in slow cooker. Sprinkle garlic-pepper blend over top; stir to coat evenly.
  • 2
    Cover; cook on Low heat setting 7 to 8 hours.
  • 3
    In large bowl, mix remaining ingredients. Using slotted spoon, remove riblets from slow cooker and add to maple syrup mixture. Toss riblets to coat.
  • 4
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Spray grill basket (grill “wok”) with cooking spray. Place riblets in basket; place basket on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 10 to 12 minutes, stirring ribs or shaking basket after 5 minutes, until ribs are well glazed.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To bake riblets, prepare as directed in steps 1 and 2. Heat oven to 450°F. Place riblets in 15x10x1-inch pan lined with foil. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, without turning, until ribs are well glazed.
  • tip 2
    The heat level among brands of chili paste varies a lot. If you want spicier ribs, add 1 to 2 tablespoons more chili paste.
