About this Recipe

Slow cooked and bathed in sauce, Ooey Gooey says it all!


1 Package Maple Leaf Prime® Pork Back Ribs
1 tbsp (15 mL) Vegetable oil
2 tbsp (30 mL) Minced onion
1 Clove garlic
2 tbsp (30 mL) Canadian whiskey or apple juice
.125 tsp (.5 mL) Pepper
.25 tsp (1 mL) Salt
.5 cup (125 mL) Ketchup
1 tbsp (15 mL) Tomato paste
4 tsp (20 mL) Cider vinegar
1 tsp (5 mL) Liquid smoke
2 tsp (10 mL) Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp (15 mL) Brown sugar
1 tbsp (15 mL) Corn syrup
1 tsp (5 mL) Hot pepper sauce


PREHEAT oven to 325°F (160°C).

REMOVE the membrane from the back of the ribs by gently pulling and peeling it off. Place ribs in a shallow baking dish. Add ½ cup (125 mL) of water to the pan and cover with aluminum foil. Bake for about 2 hours or until tender but not falling apart.

REMOVE from the oven and drain off the cooking liquid. Set ribs aside.

HEAT oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and sauté for 2-3 minutes.
Add whiskey or apple juice and simmer 8-10 minutes or until the onions are tender. Stir in the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Simmer for 15-20 minutes.

PREHEAT broiler to medium-high. Arrange the ribs on a baking sheet and brush liberally with the BBQ sauce. Turn and baste frequently until golden brown.

PREHEAT BBQ to medium-high, lightly coating the grill with non-stick cooking spray. Place ribs on the grill and cook, turning and basting frequently with the BBQ sauce until evenly grilled and golden brown.
