Pomegranate Barbecued Ribs

We are having an early taste of summer with 80 degree temperatures in Mpls so that calls for cooking up some of my Dad's Memphis Ribs.
Pork Ribs with Pomegranate BBQ Sauce
I've become addicted to POM pomegranate juice since they sent me some so I decided to make a barbecue sauce for the ribs out of it. I also used the juice to steam the ribs in for 1 hour of the cooking. These ribs came out so wonderful. Sweet & tangy just like I like my barbecue. The sauce caramelized really nicely on the grill making for a perfect sticky, lick your fingers coating. The sauce tasted quite spicy to me before it had been cooked on the ribs after grilling it was very mild so adjust the amount of hot sauce to your preference.

Pomegranate Barbecue Sauce

1 c POM Pomegranate Juice
1/4 c ketchup
1/4 c honey
1 T ground ginger
1 T hot sauce (more or less to taste)
1 T balsamic vinegar

Put all ingredients in a small saucepan & bring to a boil. Boil, stirring occasionally, until thickened. Cool & store in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Makes about 3/4 c

POM goes so well with pork, and chicken too.
I love that sticky topping.

What a great marketing tool to get all us bloggers to write about POM. My husband is now addicted to Coke One and POM since receiving our samples.

We were up in the 90s this weekend - your ribs would have been a welcome addition to our dinner last night.
