Ginger & Maple Glazed Pulled Pork Ribs

Ever wondered what to do with those uneven rib rack ends? They’re sized a little strangely for normal BBQ, but can be slow cooked into tasty pulled pork. This recipe is very budget friendly and you can scale it up easily. Feeds two.

Ginger maple ribs

You will need:

  • 2 Tablespoons of crushed ginger or paste
  • 3 Tablespoons maple syrup (About 1/4 cup)
  • 1 Teaspoon garlic powder*
  • 1 Teaspoon onion powder*
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of pepper
  • 1  Teaspoon sea salt
  • Dash of Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Half rib racks.

*Why use dry spices? Because using crushed garlic and onion would be too much moisture, and the glaze would slip right off. 

Step one

spice mix

Mix everything together in a bowl. Except for the ribs, of course. You ever tried mixing a rib rack? If you try, please send a video and i’ll totally post it on here.


Step two

Spice mix rubbed on ribs

Preheat the oven to 425.

Place rib rack in baking tray, and rub the spice mixture all over it. It’s sticky, have fun. Or use a brush.

Once thoroughly coated, place in the oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until the outside has browned a bit. Turn the oven down to 350 and let it cook for another 30-45 mins, or until the meat pulls away from the bone.

Step three

Using a pair of forks, tear the meat into shreds! This part is fun for small children with particularly strong arms. Serve warm. (Although it is very nice served cold in a salad.)
