Mustard Molasses Baby Back Ribs

These ribs are easy to put together and you can almost forget about them, well, expect for the amazing smell coming from your kitchen! A perfect meal for Sunday Night Dinner.

Gather the following ingredients:

  • Springdell Pork Babyback Ribs
  • Honey Mustard
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • Spices of your choice, here is what I used
    • salt
    • pepper
    • paprika
    • Ben’s maple sugar
    • granulated onion
    • granulated roasted garlic
  • Warm water


You will need to prepare your pan.  Start by covering a rimmed cookie sheet with aluminum foil.  Place a rack on top of that, ensuring that the air can circulate around the ribs.

Place the ribs, meat side up onto the rack.

Spread honey mustard onto all sides of the ribs.

Then put together the rest of your flavors.  I mixed the spices with the molasses, which forms a thick paste.  Using a little bit of warm water I slightly loosen the mixture so that it becomes spreadable.

Spread this mixture onto the ribs with the mustard, your hands will get messy!

Place your oven on broil and let the ribs cook for about 5 minutes, until the sugars on the top begin to bubble.

Turn of the broiler and adjust the baking temp to 300 degrees.  Place the ribs in for 90 minutes.

This is the halfway point for the ribs.  You don’t want them to dry out so  cover them at this point with aluminum foil.  Return them to the oven for an additional 90 minutes.

Ok, after the remaining cook time it’s the final reveal.

Served with some cornbread with strawberry butter..OMG!  I will post about the cornbread late reply this week.

Great Sunday Night Dinner.  G’night all!
