  • 3 ½ pounds baby back pork ribs

  • 1 (16 ounce) jar apricot preserves

  • cup soy sauce

  • ¼ cup packed light brown sugar

  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder

  • aluminum foil

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Place ribs in a large roasting pan. Whisk together apricot preserves, soy sauce, brown sugar, and garlic powder until blended. Pour apricot marinade over ribs, cover, and place in the refrigerator, 8 hours to overnight.

  2. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line a baking pan with aluminum foil.

  3. Remove ribs from the marinade and shake off excess. Place ribs in the prepared baking pan and season with salt and pepper. Pour marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer marinade for 5 minutes; set aside.

  4. Bake ribs in the preheated oven, basting frequently with the cooked marinade, until ribs are tender and meat pulls away easily from the bone, about 1 hour 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
