Orange & Honey Glazed Oven Baked Ribs…A Weeknight Dinner Recipe From Sweet Basil



2 lbs. baby back or spare ribs

Juice and zest of two oranges

1/4 apple cider vinegar

3 tbsp. honey

2/3 c. maple syrup

1/2 c. dijon mustard

1/4 c. hot sauce

salt and pepper, to taste


Combine all ingredients and marinate ribs for 1 hour. (This can be done ahead of time and refrigerated up to a day before.)

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil for easy clean up.

Remove ribs from marinade (reserve the marinade) and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 45 minutes, turning and basting with remaining marinade about halfway through.
