Grilling is one of my favorite ways to cook. I love to heat up the grill and toss some vegetables and a great protein on it.
My recipes are often inspired by what is in season. This Labor Day, I will am trying out a new bbq sauce recipe for the Smithfield extra tender fresh pork back ribs I have been excited to try.
My family has been getting so many big beautiful peaches this summer, so I knew I would have to try my hand at making a grilling sauce that had a base of peaches. I love a sweet sauce and this peach sauce was perfect.
Grilled Pork Ribs
I decided to invite a few friends over and create a fun Labor Day meal. I knew that I wanted to spend time with my friends and family, so I pre-cooked the ribs in the oven. The directions on the Smithfield extra tender fresh pork back ribs are so easy to follow. All I had to do was heat the oven, rub in some spices and bake.
The magic happens when the ribs come out of the oven and get on the grill. I slathered some of the peach sauce on them and let them cook at a low heat. I didn’t want the sauce to burn.
Fresh From the oven! I think I could eat the ribs like this, but I know they will be so much better with the spicy peach sauce.
Start out with your Smithfield extra tender fresh pork back ribs on the grill with the meat side up. When they have cooked about 5 minutes, flip them and put more sauce on them. Continue this process for about 20 minutes and your tender and delicious ribs will be ready.
Grilled Pork Ribs with peach sauce
Transfer the ribs to a cutting board and cut the racks between the bones. Place the remaining barbecue sauce to a serving bowl and serve with the ribs.
Spicy Peach BBQ Sauce
- 6 cups finely chopped pitted peeled peaches about 3 lb or 9 medium
- 1 cup finely chopped onion about 1 large
- 3 Tbsp finely chopped garlic about 14 cloves
- 1-1/4 cups honey
- 3/4 cup cider vinegar
- 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tsp dry mustard
- 2 tsp salt
Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring frequently, until mixture thickens to the consistency of a thin barbeque sauce, about 25 minutes.
Puree in batches in a food processor or use an immersion blender to help break down the peaches. If the sauce is not thick enough for you, place the sauce back in the pan and cook down till the desired consistency.
You can add any sides you want to complete this meal. I chose to make some potato salad, fresh green beans and some corn on the cob. Easy of the side were inspired by the garden.
