Orange Honey Pork Ribs

(5 Votes)
Orange Honey Pork Ribs
30 Min

Sure you'll need lots of napkins, but only after you finish licking all this sweet sauce from your fingers!

What You'll Need

  • 4 pounds country-style pork ribs
  • 1 cup orange marmalade
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

What to Do

  1. Place the ribs in a soup pot and brown for 10 to 12 minutes over medium-high heat, turning halfway through the cooking.

  2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; mix well. Pour the mixture over the ribs, then reduce the heat to medium and continue cooking for 18 to 20 minutes, or until the rib juices run clear and no pink remains.

  3. Serve topped with the sauce.


The marmalade and honey take care of the sweet part, but to make this a really sweet and spicy sauce, add more cayenne pepper sauce.

Yummy! I browned county style ribs and then finished them in the oven after I poured the sauce over them. They were fork-tender! But the sweet marmalade can certainly stand up to more heat, so I used more than double the amount of hot pepper sauce called for and they still weren't very spicy. This recipe is different and definitely a keeper.

I think using a slow cooker would be far more advantageous. It would not only tenderize the pork ribs more, it would allow the flavors to settle in and make for a much more enjoyable meal. Remember, low and slow is ALWAYS better. As for the Cayenne Pepper, I would start out with 1/4 tsp and go from there. You can always ADD, but can't take out. After all, isn't it the tenderness and FLAVOR your cooking for. Barbqman

I also think these would be better either in a slow cooker or a long slow & low time in the oven......I also would cut back on the cayenne pepper...I like spice but a full tsp is too much for that much sauce in my opinion.Otherwise it sounds good.

I think I would put them in a slow cooker for at least 6 to 7 hrs. with the sauce put on the last hour.

Haven't tried this recipe but I'll bet those ribs are mighty tough after cooking only 32 minutes.
