Gluten-Free Jamaican Jerk Ribs Recipe

By: Gillian Olins on October 1, 2014

Jerk is a style of cooking native to Jamaica in which pork or chicken is dry-rubbed or wet marinated with a hot spice mixture called Jamaican jerk spice. These delicious gluten-free pork ribs can be served with rice and either a salad or cooked vegetables.

1 (3-pound) rack pork ribs
5 tablespoons Jamaican jerk spice (gluten-free)
3 3/4 cups pineapple juice
6 tablespoons brown sugar
Juice of 1 1/2 limes
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

Gluten-Free Jamaican Jerk Ribs RecipePlace the ribs in a roasting pan, and rub with 4 tablespoons of jerk spice. Place in the refrigerator to marinate overnight.

Heat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Season the ribs with salt. Pour over 3 cups of the pineapple juice. Cover the pan with parchment paper. Bake for 2 hours.

In a saucepan, mix together the remaining jerk spice, pineapple juice, sugar, lime juice, vinegar, and a pinch of salt. Heat the mixture until the sugar dissolves, then bubbles and thickens.

Remove the ribs from the oven, and pour away the cooking liquid.

Increase the oven temperature to 400 degrees F.

Pat the ribs dry with kitchen paper. Brush the jerk sauce all over. Return the ribs to the oven for 20 minutes, brushing with the remaining sauce about every 5 minutes, until the ribs are thoroughly coated.

Serves 4
