Pork ribs in the oven with honey sauce - a dish worthy of a Sunday lunch or a friendly gathering with beer. Agree, it is not always possible to go on a picnic on the weekend: the weather will deteriorate, then there will be some other misunderstandings. However, the traditional "picnic" food can be prepared at home, it will turn out just as tasty. Most importantly, the company was what you need! In the market, choosing meat, ask the seller for a few broad and fleshy plates of pork ribs. Ribs should have a lot of meat and little fat - this is the key to success, since there are ribs for soup on sale, from which they almost completely cut the meat.
In addition, stock up on paprika powder in an oriental spices shop, and buy concentrated soy sauce at a Chinese shop. These seasonings will help you prepare a gorgeous barbecue at home. To create a campfire flavor it is good to have liquid smoke, but not everyone likes it. Someone thinks liquid smoke is a useless additive, and many people like this smell, here, as they say, tastes differ.

A way to cook pork ribs in the oven with honey sauce
We cut the rib plates in small sections - 3-4 ribs per section, so it will be convenient to cook and turn.
Rub meat with salt and powdered ground sweet paprika. This powder gives a bright color, delicious smell, while sweet paprika does not burn your tongue and palate.
Next, pour the soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, put Dijon mustard, add liquid smoke according to the recommendations on the package (optional). Mix everything thoroughly, then pour with vegetable oil and remove marinated in the fridge for 6 hours.
It is possible to bake pork ribs in the oven with honey sauce in different ways. One of the ways is to wrap the rib plates in several layers of foil, bake almost until ready, then unfold the foil, smear the meat and brown the meat under the grill.
And you can do this: lubricate the refractory form with vegetable oil, spread ribs, cover with foil and send to an oven heated to 180 degrees for 60 minutes.
While the meat is roasting, prepare the sauce. On the water bath, heat the butter with ketchup and honey until the mass is homogeneous.
We take the form with the meat from the oven, remove the foil, apply a thin layer of sauce on the ribs with a brush.
Again, put the form in the oven, browning the ribs to golden brown for about 15 minutes.
Before serving the pork ribs with honey sauce, baked in the oven, cut them in portions, spread on lettuce or spinach leaves. Enjoy your meal!
For food lovers with peppercorns, I advise you to add a little hot chili to the honey sauce.
