Baby Back Ribs with honey-miso barbecue sauce
Most people don’t think of miso when thinking of ribs. But adding umami-rich red miso makes the honey-miso sauce taste finger lickin’ good.
FOR THE RIBS, TRIM:
FOR THE SAUCE, HEAT:
Preheat oven to 300°.
For the ribs, trim excess fat from ribs. Pierce meat between bones with a fork, then arrange on a baking sheet. Season both sides of ribs with salt and pepper. Tightly cover baking sheet with foil; bake ribs 2 hours.
For the sauce, heat oil in a saucepan over medium. Add onion and garlic; sweat until softened, 5 minutes. Stir in honey, miso, ketchup, vinegar, and soy sauce; simmer 5 minutes. Purée sauce with a handheld blender, then stir in lime juice and pepper flakes.
Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush grill grate with oil.
Remove ribs from oven, coat with sauce, and grill, covered, until charred, 3–4 minutes per side. Transfer ribs to a platter, tent with foil, and let rest 5–10 minutes. Slice between bones and serve ribs with remaining sauce.
