Ingredients

  • 1 cup chili sauce
  • 3/4 cup grape jelly
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons dry red wine or Progresso™ beef flavored broth from 32-oz carton
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 4 1/2 lb pork loin back ribs
  • 3 cups water

Instructions

To make sauce:

  • In 1-quart saucepan, heat chili sauce, jelly, wine and mustard over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until jelly is melted.
  • Heat coals or gas grill for indirect heat. Cut ribs into serving pieces. Place ribs in 4-quart Dutch oven; add water. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to low.
  • Cover and simmer 5 minutes; drain.
  • Cover and grill pork over medium coals 15 to 20 minutes, brushing with sauce every 3 minutes, until pork is no longer pink and meat begins to pull away from bones.
  • Heat any remaining sauce to boiling, stirring constantly; boil and stir 1 minute. Serve sauce with ribs.
