  • For the Ribs:

  • or

  • For the Honey-Sriracha Sauce:


Preheat oven to 400°F. In a small bowl, combine garlic, paprika, cumin, brown sugar, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle over the ribs.

Line a roasting pan with Reynolds Wrap® Aluminum Foil. Add 1/3 cup water to the pan. Place ribs in the pan and cover tightly with foil. Cover and bake in the preheated oven for 2 to 2-1/2 hours for flanken-cut ribs or 2-1/2 to 3 hours for English-cut ribs, or until tender and the meat is falling off the bone.

For the Honey-Sriracha Sauce, In a small bowl combine honey, Sriracha sauce, and lime juice. Or, substitute your favorite barbecue sauce.

Remove ribs from oven and increase oven temperature to 425°F. Transfer ribs to two foil-lined 15x10x1-inch baking pans, arranging ribs in a single layer. Brush 1 cup of the Honey-Sriracha Sauce over ribs. Return to oven for 12 to 15 minutes, or until just starting to brown.

If desired, sprinkle with green onion to serve. Pass remaining Honey-Sriracha Sauce.

Grilling Option:
Prepare ribs through Step 1 above. Preheat grill to medium indirect heat. Center one-fourth of the ribs and two ice cubes on a sheet (18x24 inches) of Reynolds Wrap® Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil. Bring up foil sides. Double-fold top and ends to seal packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside. Repeat to make four packets. Grill packets on a grill rack over medium (375°F to 400°F) indirect heat in a covered grill 2 to 2-1/2 hours, or until tender. Open packets carefully by cutting along top folds with a sharp knife to allow steam to escape, then open top of foil packet. Leaving ribs on foil, brush ribs with 1 cup of the Honey-Sriracha Sauce. Arrange ribs over direct medium heat and continue grilling, covered, 5 minutes more until browned, turning once.
