Sweet & Spicy Big Red Baby Back Ribs
Using soda as a sweet profile for meats is nothing new, but picking the right flavor (and color!) combos can give you incredible results, like this Big Red BBQ Rib Glaze.
There’s an entire 20oz bottle that has been reduced and cooked down to just half a cup of delicious syrup. Pro tip: you may want to double the amount when reducing the syrup, you can use it for a bunch of other applications like a topping straight over ice cream, or even as a great alternative to simple syrup for cocktails, it makes a great alternative for maraschino juice too!
This glaze is a perfect match for pork ribs, with its sweet cherry notes. Apply glaze towards the end of the your cook to give ribs a sticky, sweet and shiny finish. If you prefer a spicier kick, add in an extra ½ tsp of cayenne powder!
This glaze can also be used as syrupy drizzle on other pork dishes, too.
