No matter how you cook your ribs, you’ll need a great sauce to cover them. The best sauces for ribs tend to be thick and sticky so that they hold to the ribs and while most of us are used to tomato based there is a lot of choices out there if you look around.
Giselle and Mike Deneka from Perfect Pairs may have found the perfect alternative. Their Ginger Balsamic Glazed Ribs are easy to prepare and are sure to make even the fussiest eater come back for more.

Ginger Balsamic Glazed B-B-Q Ribs
Marinade For the Ribs:
4 racks (8 pounds) baby back ribs
12 garlic cloves, mashed or minced
3 Tbs. Honey-Ginger White Balsamic
3 Tbs. dark brown sugar

1 teaspoon Toasted Sesame Oil
Toasted sesame seeds for garnish – optional
For the marinade: Mix together the Honey-Ginger white balsamic, brown sugar, minced garlic, sea salt and sesame oil. Coat the ribs with the marinade and allow to marinate in a sealed container or large zip lock bags for a minimum of 12 hours or overnight, turning a few times.
For the Glaze: Combine the honey ginger white balsamic, honey and soy sauce in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Allow to reduce by half and remove from heat. Add one teaspoon of toasted sesame oil to the mixture and stir to combine.
For the ribs: Prepare the grill and preheat the oven to 275. Over medium heat grill the ribs for approximately 5 minutes per side. Prepare baking pan/s large enough to hold the ribs in a single layer. Brush the glaze over the ribs and seal each pan well with foil. Bake the ribs for 2 hours or until tender and meat falls off the bone. Optionally, sprinkle ribs with sesame seeds as a garnish.
