    Chipotle Baby Back Ribs

    Simmering the ribs in broth ensures tender, juicy meat. Afterward, chill the broth and remove the congealed fat; add chopped vegetables or wontons and you'll have a delectable soup.
    For the glaze:

  • 1 to 2 tablespoons pureed chipotle chilies
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • For the ribs:

  • 3 1/2 to 4 pounds pork baby back ribs, cut into 4-rib segments
  • 2 to 3 quarts chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  • 3 large cloves garlic, minced
  • To finish:

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • Lime slices to garnish
  • In a medium bowl, combine all glaze ingredients; stir to blend. Set 1 cup of glaze aside to pass at the table.

    Place ribs in a large pot or Dutch oven; add enough chicken broth to barely cover (usually 2 quarts is enough). Add cilantro, ginger and garlic; bring to boil. Reduce heat to a gentle simmer; simmer 30 minutes or until meat is tender. Remove ribs and place on a jelly-roll pan; generously brush both sides with glaze.

    Heat grill to medium. Grill ribs, basting and turning often, until heated through, well glazed but not blackened, about 10 minutes. Add lime juice to the reserved glaze and heat. Place ribs on platter. Garnish with lime slices and sprigs of cilantro. Pass reserved glaze to spoon over ribs. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
