5 pounds of beef spare ribs
1 cup real maple syrup (pancake syrup will not work)
3 Tbsp orange juice concentrate
3 Tbsp catsup
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp dijon mustard
1 Tbsp Worstershire sauce
1 tsp curry powder
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
2 green onions, chopped
1 Tbsp sesame seeds, toasted
Preheat oven to 350. Place ribs on a rack in a large baking pan ( I put cooling rack inside a lasagna pan) and cover with foil. Bake 60-90 minutes. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine maple syrup, orange juice concentrate, catsup, soy sauce, mustard, worstershire, curry powder, garlic and onions. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and boil gently for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside. When ribs are done, remove from rack and drain pan. Return ribs to pan or smaller baking dish and cover with maple sauce. Bake, uncovered, basting often for 35 more minutes. Move to platter and sprinkle with seeds.
I like to serve this with mashed potato casserole. Tastier if made ahead, refridgerated and reheated!
