Fall off the Bone, Bourbon and Brown Sugar Glazed Ribs!

Who doesn’t like a nice rack of ribs? Around here, we love them! However, I could never find just the right sauce to put on them. I have experimented with different combinations over the years, up until I created this bourbon and brown sugar glaze. Anyone who has tried this recipe, fully agrees, that these are the best ribs they have ever eaten. Myself included! The best part is, they are super simple to make! Now go wipe the drool off your chin and I’ll add the recipe!! lol


  • 2 racks baby back ribs
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup bourbon
  • 1 Tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • 2 heaping Tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon pepper, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

Place ribs in a large baking dish. (cut to fit if necessary) Season each rack with with the salt, pepper and garlic powder. Cover the baking dish tightly with foil and roast for about 5 1/2 hours at 225 degrees. In the meantime, combine the remaining ingredients to prepare the glaze. After the ribs have cooked for 5 1/2 hours, remove them from the oven and generously coat them with the glaze. Return them to the oven, uncovered, for an additional 30 minutes. Remove them from the oven and once again, baste them generously with the glaze. Finally, cover them with foil and allow them to rest about 10-15 minutes. Once rested, cut them into your desired portion sizes and serve.

Let me just tell you, this slow cooked rib meat is so tender and juicy it will literally fall off the bone! These are ridiculously delicious and I guarantee there will not be any leftovers!!

Come back and let me know your thoughts!
