Hot Tempered Baby Back Ribs with Sweet Guava Glaze

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

For an exotic treat that gives you a feel of the 'islands,' try these hot and spicy ribs, graced with the fragrance of guava. Guava jelly is available on the International aisle of most grocery stores.

INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):


  • Combine brown sugar and spices in a small bowl; reserve 2 tablespoons spice mixture. Rub remaining spice mixture on ribs; coat well.
  • Place ribs in a single layer on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet (17x11-inch) or roasting pan. Pour water into pan; cover with foil. Bake at 375 degrees F for 1 hour, or until meat starts to pull away from bones.
  • Meanwhile, combine jelly and reserved spice mixture. Brush steamed ribs with jelly mixture. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour or overnight, if desired.
  • Grill or broil 3-5 minutes per side, or until heated through and nicely browned.

  • This recipe goes great with McCormick's Sweet and Sassy Vanilla Slaw.
