Peruvian Style Sweet and Spicy Ribs


  • 3 racks Prime Pork Baby Back Ribs
  • 2 tbsp kosher salt
  • 1 tbsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 jar Zocalo Peru Aji Amarillo Chili Cooking Sauce
  • Fresh lime, cut into wedges


Position racks in center and upper third of oven and preheat oven to 300°F. On bone side of ribs, at corner of rack, slip a small knife under clear membrane. Use paper towels to remove completely. (You may have to make a few attempts)

In a small bowl, combine salt, pepper and brown sugar. Season each rack evenly with rub. Wrap each rack securely in aluminum foil and place on a sheet pan (they can overlap). Bake until ribs are almost tender (carefully open a foil packet to check), 1½-2 hours.

Carefully unwrap each packet of ribs and baste with sauce. Reseal packets. Bake until ribs are fork-tender, about 45 mins -1 hour. Let cool slightly and unwrap completely.

Meanwhile, prepare outdoor grill to medium heat. Place unwrapped ribs on grill and cook, basting each side with additional sauce, about 3-4 minutes per side or until slightly charred. Remove from grill and allow ribs to rest 5 minutes before carving. Serve with fresh lime wedges.
