  • 4 to 5 lbs baby back pork ribs

Rib Rub:

  • 1/4 cup dry mustard
  • 1/4 cup smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tbl seasoned salt
  • 1 tbl brown sugar
  • 2 tsps fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 tbl flour

Honey Mustard Sauce

  • add remaining 2 tablespoons rib rub
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp cornstarch mixed with 1 tbl water


  • Stir together dry mustard, paprika, oregano, salt, sugar and brown sugar. Mix well. Rinse ribs under water and pat dry with a paper towel. Remove thin white membrane from under side of ribs. Cut ribs in four- piece sections.
  • Season ribs with all but two tablespoons of the dry rub. (set 2 tablespoons aside) Place ribs in heavy duty foil. Sprinkle ribs with the flour. Cover ribs tightly with foil. Place in a large baking dish and bake in the oven at 425° for 1 hour.
  • Meanwhile, combine the honey mustard sauce ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 6 to 8 minutes, stirring frequently. Add water and cornstarch mixture to saucepan and cook an additional 4 minutes until sauce is thickened.
  • When ribs come out of the oven, turn oven to broil. Carefully remove ribs from foil. Arrange baked pork ribs on grill pan and place about 6 inches from broiler flame for about 3 minutes per side, basting liberally with sauce. Serve additional sauce on the side. These ribs pair nicely with rice and a cucumber salad with oregano, oil and vinegar.
