Ribs with Honey Mustard Glaze | www.tasteandtellblog.com

I consider myself a decent cook – one that isn’t scared away from most recipes. Yes, there are some that are intimidating, but I’m always up for a challenge. Ribs are one of those things that I’ve been intimidated by. Why? I really don’t know why. But I had never made them before, except the boneless kind that you can just throw in the crock pot. But I found some ribs on sale, and I decided to go for it.

Guess what? This was probably one of the easiest things I have ever made. Go figure. I don’t know why ribs have intimidated me in the past. But I can tell you that they never will again, and I will be making them often now!!

Ribs with Honey Mustard Glaze
slightly adapted from Real Simple June 2010

serves 2

hands on time: 10 minutes
total time: 2 hours 45 minutes

2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon dried oregano
salt and pepper
2 pounds ribs (we used St. Louis style)
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/8 cup honey

Heat oven to 275° F. Make the rub: In a small bowl, combine the sugar, paprika, dry mustard, oregano, 2 teaspoons salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper.

Place the ribs on a large rimmed baking sheet. Rub the ribs with the spice mixture and tightly cover the baking sheet with foil. Bake until tender and the meat easily pulls away from the bone, 2 to 2 ½ hours.

Meanwhile, make the sauce: In a small bowl, combine the Dijon mustard, vinegar, and honey. Transfer ½ cup of the sauce into a small bowl for serving.

Heat grill to medium-high. Grill the ribs, basting with the remaining sauce and turning occasionally, until just beginning to char, 4 to 5 minutes. Serve with the reserved sauce.

    Wow, those look fantastic! The honey mustard sauce sounds awesome on these. I don't make these kind of ribs often, we usually go for the boneless but I wouldn't mind one now!

    It looks delicious! I've never used a mustard glaze with ribs and must try it since I'm a mustard lover! Thanks!

    I just made ribs this weekend and posted about them yesterday, but yours look even more delicious! I would never think to do ribs in anything but BBQ sauce, but I'll have to keep this in mind for next time. GREAT recipe!

  8. Kat says:

    I'm intimidated by ribs, too! But this looks really simple. A lot of rib recipes seem so complicated. I'm bookmarking this one!

  9. Joanne says:

    Dude ribs TOTALLY intimidate me as well. I love the glaze on these though. Excuse to face my fears? I think so.

  10. Barbara says:

    I'm so used to seeing the red glazes that it's a pleasant surprise to see the honey-mustard glaze. And it looks delicious. Timely too, because this will no doubt be a weekend of picnics! (If weather allows us!)

    Perfect meal for a hot summer day!

  12. grace says:

    i didn't realize it, but i've steered clear of making ribs too, probably because i don't like to eat them myself. however, i would like to drink that glaze. is that such a bad thing? :)

  13. kat says:

    I think the trick with ribs is just to make sure to cook them long enough

    This is exactly what I need to make for my husband this weekend. I've always been scared of making ribs but since you say they are easy I've got to try it.
