“These sumptuous, habit-forming ribs can be mild, to very spicy depending on your taste. My husband and I like things HOT, and the honey, mustard, onion and spices blended together will have you beggin' for more! The ribs have a beautiful presentation and will be well-enjoyed at intimate dinners, as well as backyard barbeques.”

  1. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil grate.
  2. Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Saute minced onion for about 5 minutes, or until caramelized. Stir in honey, mustard, and vinegar. Season with crushed red pepper, Cajun seasoning, salt, and black pepper. Reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, and set aside.
  3. Generously sprinkle ribs with salt and pepper on both sides. Place ribs on grill rack, cover, and open vents halfway. Cook for 35 minutes. Turn ribs once, making sure they are not being over-cooked. Brush tops of ribs with sauce, and cook covered for 5 to 10 minutes Turn ribs over, cover, and cook for another 5 to 10 minutes. Remove ribs from grill. Heat remaining sauce, and serve as a dipping or mopping sauce.

Loved the flavor, made some small changes in preparing. I first placed the ribs in a large pot and covered with water. Covered, and simmered 1 hour. Drained the ribs and transfered to a shallow dish. After preparing the glaze I let it cool slightly and then poured over the ribs. Let the ribs marinate at least 2 hours, I let mine marinate over night. Grilled them while frequently basting... it was soooo good. A little spicy for those with sensitive taste buds. My boyfriend loved the flavor, but said they were too hot to eat as many as he wanted.



I absolutely LOVED the flavor of this sauce, but was very disappointed in the end result. It didn't flavor up the ribs as much as I thought it would, so our ribs tasted as if we hadn't added any sauce at all. Next time I may consider marinating the ribs in the sauce first, because I truly did think the sauce was outstanding, I just wanted the ribs to absorb more of the flavor.

4 stars for original recipe, 5 with my changes... I took another reviewer's advice and boiled the ribs first. I also added about 4 cloves of minced garlic to the glaze and marinated the glazed ribs overnight. We took them to a 4th of July BBQ and they were the hit of the party! Sweet, sticky, and spicy good! We will definitely make these again.
