Honey-Glazed Ribs Ingredients

  • 2 cups white vinegar
  • 6 bay leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 Cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Salt
  • 1 medium red onion quartered
  • 2 kilos pork ribs cleaned
  • 1 Cup bourbon whiskey
  • 1/2 Cup honey
  • 1/2 Cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 Cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon Salt


  • Combine 8½ cups water, vinegar, bay leaves, cinnamon, sugar, salt, and onions in a large pot. Bring to a boil then add ribs. Reduce heat to medium, cover, and simmer until pork is tender, about 50 minutes. Let ribs cool in the pot. Set aside.
  • Make the honey-bourbon glaze: Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil then lower heat and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Set aside.
  • Prepare a charcoal grill over medium-high heat.
  • Drain ribs and cut into serving pieces. Brush with glaze and place, meat side down, on the grill. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes or until slightly charred. Turn ribs over, brush with more glaze, and continue grilling until caramelized. Serve hot.
