Just to show you how easy it is to come up with a quick and fun ribs recipe, I made these delicious Tropical Pineapple & Honey BBQ Ribs recipe with only 6 ingredients!!! To start off I rubbed some McCormick Perfect Pinch Caribbean Jerk Seasoning on both sides of my ribs. Instead of buying a long list of spices and ingredients you can get it all in this one little bottle! Cover and refrigerate your ribs for at least an hour or overnight if you can.
While the ribs are in the fridge, make this quick and easy sauce. It only has 3 ingredients: Kraft Honey Barbecue Sauce, some chopped pineapple, and lime juice. No need to make a sauce with a long list of ingredients! Put everything in a blender (or food processor) and process until smooth. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
I grilled my ribs on indirect heat for about an hour and a half. My grill wasn’t quite big enough for actual”indirect” heat so I put my grill on very low, covered the grates with aluminum foil to help keep the heat down, then put my ribs on the top rack in my grill. If your ribs drip a lot from the top shelf, you can put some disposable aluminum pans filled with water underneath to catch some of the drippings. It worked great! Then I basted my ribs with the sauce for another 15-30 minutes turning frequently.
You could also bake the ribs in the oven or prepare the way you like your ribs. Let your ribs rest a little while so they turn out tender and juicy! I garnished my ribs with some chopped fresh cilantro and served them with the remaining BBQ sauce and a few lime wedges. My family gobbled these up!!! Hope you enjoy this BBQ ribs recipe!
Hope you enjoy!
Tropical Pineapple & Honey BBQ Ribs
- 1 (4-6 lbs.) rack of pork spareribs
- 3 tablespoons McCormick Perfect Pinch Caribbean Jerk Seasoning
- 1 cup Kraft Honey Barbecue Sauce
- 1 1/4 cup chopped pineapple
- 3 tablespoons lime juice
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- Place the ribs on large plate or baking sheet. Rub Caribbean Jerk Seasoning on both sides. Cover and refrigerate one hour or overnight.
- Place barbecue sauce, pineapple, and lime juice into blender; blend until smooth. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
- Preheat grill for indirect cooking. Grill ribs over indirect heat for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Brush barbecue sauce on both sides of pork and cook another 15 to 30 minutes basting and turning often.
- Remove pork from grill and let rest about 15 minutes. Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve with any remaining barbecue sauce.
SNAPPY TIPS: Cook pork until internal temperature is about 160 degrees F. The Caribbean Jerk Seasoning is a little spicy so adjust for personal taste.
SNAPPY SUBSTITUTIONS: Instead of lime juice you could substitute orange juice.
