“We learned from a friend that boiling ribs in apple juice make them fall off the bone tender. It only makes sense to use the flavourful cooking liquid as a base for a quick and easy barbecue sauce.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the ribs into manageable pieces. Place in a large stock pot. Pour apple juice over ribs, cover and simmer for 1 hour. Drain, reserving cooking liquid. Keep ribs warm.
  2. Strain the liquid. Skim off as much fat as you can from the reserved liquid. Then reduce what remains to about 2 cups in volume.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until the consistency of a thick sauce. Stir often so it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan. Taste and adjust seasonings.
  4. Paint sauce on ribs and either run under your over broiler or cook on the barbecue for a few minutes per side to finish. Serve with your favourite potato salad and coleslaw.
