Peaches are quite the warm-weather gift. They're great on their own as a snack or dressed up as a dessert, or even smothered with some bbq sauce to create some Peachy Ribs! This marvelous pairing starts with a hefty rack of baby back ribs rubbed in a sweet and spicy mix. But the magic really starts once they're lathered in a tangy yet sugary, peach-infused sauce! Peachy Ribs are sure to become a go-to for grilling!


For the peach bbq sauce: • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil • 1/3 small onion • 2 peaches, peeled and sliced • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar • 3 tablespoons brown sugar • 1 (8-ounce) can peppers in adobo sauce • salt, to taste • pepper, to taste For the rub: • 1/4 cup salt • 1/4 cup brown sugar • 1 teaspoon garlic powder • 1 teaspoon chili powder • 1 teaspoon onion powder For the ribs: • 1 rack pork baby back ribs, membrane removed, trimmed


Step 1

Heat a small saucepan over medium heat.

Add the oil and the onions and sauté until the onions are soft, about 3-5 minutes.

Step 3

Add the peaches, apple cider vinegar, 3 tablespoons brown sugar, and peppers to the onion mixture.

Step 4

Season with salt and pepper.

Step 5

Simmer the peach mixture until the peaches are soft and falling apart, for about 10 minutes.

Pour the peach mixture into a blender and purée until it's smooth.

In a small bowl, combine the remaining salt, remaining brown sugar, garlic powder, chili powder, and onion powder.

Sprinkle the rub all over the ribs and press it into both sides.

Step 10

Wrap the rubbed ribs in foil and place them on the grill with the lid closed.

Step 11

Cook the ribs until they are tender and can be easily pierced by a fork, but not falling off the bone, for about 1 1/2-2 hours on low heat.

Step 12

Transfer the ribs from the grill and set them aside.

Turn the heat up to medium-high.

Step 14

Carefully remove the foil from the ribs and place the rack directly on the grill.
