  • 2 (2-pound) racks pork ribs
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 tablespoons oregano
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 2 teaspoons sriracha
  • 1 teaspoon liquid smoke


Step 1 –Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Step 2 –Discard the membrane or silverskin from the bottom side of the ribs.

Step 3 –Flip the rib racks over (the side without the meat) and using a knife, cut from one end to the other, pulling to peel the skin off.

Step 4 –In a large bowl, mix together the honey, the brown sugar, the olive oil, the lemon juice, the salt, the pepper, the garlic, the paprika, the oregano, the mustard, the sriracha, and the liquid smoke.

Step 5 –Place the ribs on a large roaster fitted with a rack.

Step 6 –Thoroughly brush the glaze all over both sides of the ribs. If extra glaze remains after brushing, pour it on top of the ribs.

Step 7 –Add 1/2 inch of water to the bottom of the roasting pan.

Step 8 –Bake until the ribs reach an internal temperature of at least 190 degrees F, basting every 20 minutes with the drippings from the pan, about 1 hour 30 minutes. If the ribs start to brown too much, cover them with foil.

Step 9 –Serve.
