READY IN: 3hrs




  • In a small bowl, prepare the dry rub by thoroughly mixing all ingredients together.
  • Wash the ribs under running water, pat dry, rub the lime juice over ribs; generously rub the dry rub into meat. Cover and refrigerate, allowing ribs to marinade for 4 to 6 hours.
  • Prepare the mango sauce by placing ingredients in a heavy saucepan, make a slit in the pepper with a sharp knife before adding to the pot; bring ingredients to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until mixture is reduced and thick; approximately 20 minutes. Remove the pepper, puree remaining ingredients in blender, stir the lime zest into puree. Place in container and refrigerate until you are ready to prepare the ribs.
  • Remove meat from refrigerator 30 minutes before cooking time and allow it to stand at room temperature. Preheat broiler on high, spray a broiling pan with cooking spray, place the ribs on prepared pan, broil until meat browns, and turn as needed in order for all sides to brown evenly.
  • Remove meat from oven, place in heavy pot, pour mango sauce over meat, cover and cook at 300 degrees for 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until meat is tender. Several times during the cooking process, skim fat from broth.
  • Cook the rice as per package directions, remove meat from sauce, skim additional fat if needed, pour sauce into small bowl and serve as a dipping sauce for the ribs or if serving as a main course, place ribs on top of cooked rice and spoon the sauce over. Enjoy!
