Chipotle Baby Back Ribs

For The Glaze
1 tb Pureed chipotle chilies; (up to 2)
3/4 c Orange juice
1/2 c Molasses
1/2 c Balsamic vinegar
1/2 c Hoisin sauce
1/2 c Reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 ts Salt


For The Ribs
3 1/2 lb Pork baby back ribs; cut into 4-rib segments, (up to 4)
2 qt Chicken broth; (up to 3)
1/4 c Chopped cilantro
2 tb Minced fresh ginger
3 lg Cloves garlic; minced


To Finish
2 tb Lime juice
Lime slices to garnish


Simmering the ribs in broth ensures tender, juicy meat. Afterward, chill the broth and remove the congealed fat; add chopped vegetables or wontons and you'll have a delectable soup.

In a medium bowl, combine all glaze ingredients; stir to blend. Set 1 cup of glaze aside to pass at the table.

Place ribs in a large pot or Dutch oven; add enough chicken broth to barely cover (usually 2 quarts is enough). Add cilantro, ginger and garlic; bring to boil. Reduce heat to a gentle simmer; simmer 30 minutes or until meat is tender. Remove ribs and place on a jelly-roll pan; generously brush both sides with glaze.

Heat grill to medium. Grill ribs, basting and turning often, until heated through, well glazed but not blackened, about 10 minutes.

Add lime juice to the reserved glaze and heat. Place ribs on platter. Garnish with lime slices and sprigs of cilantro. Pass reserved glaze to spoon over ribs. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
