Powdered garlic works best in this dish because it won't burn and get bitter the way fresh garlic can.
- 4 lb. (1.8 kg) pork back ribs
- 1 cup (250 mL) honey
- 1-2 tsp. (5-10 mL) garlic powder
1 Place ribs in a pot with enough water to cover; bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 30 minutes or until tender.
2 Remove thin membrane from inner side. (Ribs can be refrigerated overnight at this point.)
3 Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
4 Mix honey and garlic powder in a small saucepan and heat on low.
5 Place ribs in a foil-lined baking pan and drizzle with half the honey mixture.
6 Bake for 30 minutes, basting with remaining mixture every 10 minutes, or until ribs are glazed and crisp.
