Rachael Ray's Baby Back Ribs With Jammy Glaze

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 45 mins

This is from Rachael Ray's Everyday with Rachael Ray. I had some extra jam from my blackberry bushes left and wanted to use it up. I made mine on the grill while she did hers in the oven. I like to boil my baby backs for around 1/2 hours then place them on the grill and brush the sauce on them. This sauce is sweet with a kick (the chili powder).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place ribs in extra large pot.
  2. Cover with water and boil for 30 minutes.
  3. Remove from pot and pat dry.
  4. Stir together chili powder, salt and pepper and rub the mixture all over the ribs.
  5. Place on grill over medium to medium low heat, meaty side up, and cook 10 to 15 minutes.
  6. While ribs are on the grill, in a small saucepan, combine the jam, ketchup, steak sauce and vinegar.
  7. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until the glaze comes to a boil, about 5 minutes.
  8. Remove from heat and stir in the hot sauce.
  9. Brush glaze on the ribs and cook for 10 to 15 minutes longer until ribs are well done and glazed.
  10. Slice into individual ribs.

Thanks for posting this great recipe! I used to subscribe to her magazine and I made this a few times for my coworkers. It received rave reviews. I love food that is sweet and spicy. This glaze is also great with other meats--pork chops, turkey-- you name it!
