Last year, I discovered Arby’s Sauce, and now, I almost always have some in the fridge; for burgers and beef, sure, but…
it also works a treat on grilled pork ribs, and, I am sure, chicken, too.
One batch of Arby’s Sauce will be more than enough for two nicely sized racks of ribs, multiple burgers, and, no doubt, a nice assortment of those chicken pieces I am thinking of trying – mebbe Lemonade Marinated thighs?
•1/2 cup ketchup
•1/2 cup water
•2 tbsp Heinz 57 Steak Sauce
•2 tsp brown sugar
•2 tsp white vinegar
•1 tsp hot sauce
•1/4 tsp onion powder
•1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp kosher salt
•1/4 tsp black pepper
•1/4 tsp Aleppo pepper
•1/8 tsp white pepper
•1/8 tsp allspice
•1 or 2 racks of pork ribs
•Your seasoning blend of choice
Combine the Arby’s Sauce ingredients together until well blended, then stash in the fridge – I like to use a squeeze container.
Heat your oven to 350º and arrange your ribs in a single layer in a large baking pan. For this single batch, I cut one rack in half to fit it in a 13×9 glass baking dish.
Season with your spices/spice blend of choice; I went with this chipotle & roasted garlic blend from the market.
Cover the baking dish tightly with foil and bake for 75 minutes, until the ribs are cooked through and tender.
Remove the cover and, now, you have a choice… drain and discard any pan liquids, then apply the Arby’s Sauce directly to the ribs and return to the oven, uncovered, for another 30 to 45 minutes; or…
transfer the ribs to a hot grill and finish there, applying Arby’s Sauce as you like.
And, a perfect accompaniment to Air Fryer Corn on the Cob, in case you were wondering.
