FIREMAN'S RIBS

This recipe is hot and spicy but the heat depends on your taste. I make them just a little hot but the sweet balances it out. This works on ribs or chicken as well.
Since time is important to me I can't take all day pampering ribs. So this is an easy and fast way to make ribs but with excellent results. My husband, being a fireman enjoyed making these for his buddies. How many can this recipe serve? Well...it depends on how many firemen show up!

The flavor of these ribs is so sweetly delicious... to the point that I just couldn't put them down!

These would be terrific done on the grill as well. Just cook the ribs in water as the recipe says, then grill over medium heat for about 45 minutes. At that point, coat with the sauce and cook longer if desired. (Watch the sauce closely, though, because all of the sugars in it make it easy to burn.) The Test Kitchen

How to Make FIREMAN'S RIBS

Step-by-Step

  1. Drop ribs in boiling water and cook 15 minutes. Drain well by patting with paper towel. Place ribs in large bowl. In another bowl, whisk all seasonings sugars and orange juice together. Pour mixture over ribs and coat well. I use my hands to do this. Pour everything into a roasting pan. Bake 350 degrees for 1 hour. 30 minutes into baking,baste the ribs and bake the additional 30 minutes. Take out of oven and let set for a moment. Sauce will candy as it cools.
  2. NOTE: Baking time can vary depending on the different ovens.
