Rhubarb Barbecue Sauce Ribs

Total Time:

3hrs 20mins





Skill Level:



  • 1-2 racks pork ribs
  • Sauce:
  • 2-3 large stalks of rhubarb, chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup pure maple or Roger’s golden syrup
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup apple cider or rice vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp grainy mustard

How to Make It

In a small saucepan, bring the rhubarb and water to a simmer and cook for 5-6 minutes, until the rhubarb is very soft. Pour into a bowl and set aside. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a simmer; cook for 10-15 minutes, until the mixture thickens. Puree with a hand-held immersion blender or cool and puree in a blender or food processor until smooth. The sauce will keep in the fridge for up to a month—store any surplus in the freezer. 

Meanwhile, cover the ribs with foil on a rimmed baking sheet and roast at 325˚F for 2 to 2 1/2 hours, until very tender. Brush with rhubarb sauce and toss on a hot grill or turn the heat up to 425˚F; roast for another 20 minutes (or grill for 5-10), or until caramelized.
