Joy’s Sweet Pork Ribs


Growing up, my best friend’s Mom often made these ribs when I was over for dinner.  I normally do not care for sweet and savory, but these ribs are absolutely delish!  One of my favorite dishes.  This is not a typical “Dinner on a Dime” recipe, as ribs are not usually a budget friendly item, but if you can find them on sale, they make for a great dinner the whole family will love.  With the 4th of July on the way, this is a great dish for a family picnic.  You can easily double the batch, or make it a bit smaller, but either way, these ribs are much cheaper than taking the family OUT for a rib dinner.  So splurge, and have yourself some tasty ribs this summer!

We have them a handful of times a year as a special treat, and this time my husband had requested them for Father’s Day.  How could I say no, as these are one of my favorites as well.  I normally would pair them with rice and a nice salad, but alas, it was Father’s Day, and the hubby wanted his famous baked beans, which will post tomorrow.

Serves 6 for about $3.00/serving



Large slab of Pork ribs – ($15.82 for about 4lbs)

large onion, sliced – ($0.33)

2 cloves of garlic, minced

1 tsp. salt

1/2 jar marmalade – ($1.39)

2 Tbsp. soy sauce

1 tsp. garlic salt

1/2 tsp. ginger

1/2 cup orange juice



Cut slab into individual ribs and place in a large soup pot.  Add sliced onions, salt and garlic.


Fill pot with enough water to cover ribs with about 2 inches of water.  Bring to a boil, and boil for 1 hour.


Drain water, keeping onions in pot with ribs.


Add in remaining ingredients and coat ribs well.  Lay out on a baking sheet.


Pour remaining sauce and onions over ribs.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, until golden brown, and turn halfway through cooking time.
