  • 2-3 pounds bone-in country-style pork ribs bone and fat cut away
  • 1/4 cup white wine or apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup GF soy sauce*
  • 1/2 cup GF ketchup
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 4 TBSP honey we used fresh Star Thistle honey!
  • 2 TBSP sriracha sauce
  • 1 TBSP minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger


  1. In a large pot filled halfway with water, add the vinegar and salt, and then boil. Add the ribs and boil for 25 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all other ingredients and mix thoroughly. Add the ribs and let marinate in the fridge for 4-6 hours, occasionally stirring the concoction.
  3. Place the ribs on a grill preheated to medium heat and crisp the outsides a bit, approx. 2-3 minutes on each side (until the meat is cooked's pork so make sure you do this!).
  4. While the ribs are on the grill, place the rest of the marinade in a small sauce pan and bring to a simmer. Allow to simmer until thickened, approx. 5-7 minutes.
  5. Drizzle the reduction over the ribs. Sprinkle with green onion and sesame seeds if desired. Serve with quinoa and broccoli for an amazing meal! Enjoy it messy!
