    Here is a new recipe I got in an emaill.

    Dont know how it taste, I havent tried it yet but it sounded good. I dont know what the cornstarch does to it other than act as a thickening... Just thought I'd pass it along and get some other thoughts about it.

    Molasses-Peanut Butter Glaze for ribs
    • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
    • 1/2 cup maple syrup plus 1 tablespoon maple syrup
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
    • 1/4 cup light molasses
    • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
    • 1 teaspoon minced fresh gingerroot
    • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
    • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
    Directions: In a saucepan coated with cooking spray, saute onion and garlic over medium heat until tender. In a bowl, combine the cornstarch, syrup, water, soy sauce, molasses, vinegar, ginger and red pepper flakes until blended. Stir into onion mixture. Bring to a boil; cook for 2-3 minutes or until thickened. Add peanut butter; cook for 2 minutes or until peanut butter is melted, stirring constantly.

    TEST KITCHEN TIP You can make the sauce the day before you need it; store in the refrigerator.

    interesting. I have a feeling it's going to taste alot like the Thai spicy peanut sauce. Should be good. Might have to give it a try on the next round of ribs.

    Rob - that maple bourbon glaze sounds great. Do you have a recipe for that or is it just a straight mix of maple syrup and bourbon?

    I do understand it looks Thai based(I love Thai food)...I was wondering if anyone here has actually made it and tried it....Anyone...Anyone???
  11. Maple Bourbon Glaze

    3/4 cup LT brown sugar
    1/2 stick unsalted butter
    1/4 cup maple syrup USE GRADE B DARK
    1/4 cup bourbon
    1/4 cup apple juice

    Simmer in pan until thickened.

    How to use - When the ribs are 30 mins away from being done brush on the glaze liberally then sprinkle on a small amount of your favorite rub. We use Smokin' Guns with a little added ground chipotle powder for the comps. I like mine hot so if it's just for me I go 50/50 Guns and chipotle powder.
