Anthony’s Dr. Pepper Ribs
Man, oh man, are these ribs excellent! I’ve never been a fan of ribs but these are truly excellent. Our sun-in-law, Anthony made these for a family dinner one weekend. I enjoyed them so much that I’ve bought ribs and ingredients for him to cook these. Finally, I just had to have the recipe. The ingredients should be enough for 2-3 full racks of pork ribs.
2-3 racks of pork ribs
1/4 cup salt
1/4 cup ground black pepper
1/4 cup brown sugar
4 teaspoons mustard powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
2 teaspoons chipotle powder
1/2 teaspoon allspice
2 cups Dr. Pepper
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup mustard
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons molasses
3 teaspoons chipotle powder
Coat the ribs with the rub. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate a minimum of 4 hours.
Preheat oven to 300 F. Remove ribs from refrigerator, unwrap and allow to come to room temperature.
In a foil-lined large baking or roasting pan, arrange ribs with the meat side up. Pour 1/4 cup Dr. Pepper over ribs. Cover tightly with foil and place in the oven. Cook for 90 minutes.
Place all the glaze ingredients in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to simmer for 20 minutes, until thick.
Take ribs from the oven and spread glaze on each side of the rack. Place back in the oven, meat side up, and cook uncovered for 30 minutes. Then repeat and cook another 30 minutes.
Take ribs out of the oven, spread more glaze on them and cook each side under the broiler for 4 minutes.
