Jerk Ribs

Jerk Ribs

The distinctive flavor of jerk seasonings create a bold flavor for these ribs. Play some steel drum music and serve with fresh tropical fruits and beans and rice.


  • 2 pounds pork back ribs
  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 4 teaspoons ground thyme
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne


  1. In small jar with tight-fitting lid, shake together all dry ingredients until well-blended. Rub dry mixture onto all surfaces of ribs.
  2. Grill ribs over indirect heat in covered grill, turning occasionally, until ribs are very tender, about 1 1/2 hours (or roast ribs on rack in shallow pan in 350 degrees F. for 1 1/2 hours).
  3. Cut into 1- or 2-rib portions to serve.
