Guava Ginger Rib Glaze

Number of Servings: 
Prep Time: 
30 Minutes
Cook Time: 
30 Minutes

1 guava jelly (17 ounce jar)
3/4 cup tequila
1/2 cup lime juice, fresh
1 teaspoon lime zest
1/2 cup Brown sugar
1 tablespoon ginger (minced)
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
2 teaspoon garlic (minced)
1/4 teaspoon Salt


Mix all ingredients in a sauce pan.
Bring to boil.
Stir often, remember this is mostly sugar, it’ll burn quick.
Reduce to simmer and let reduce for about 25-30 minutes till it’s like warm maple syrup.
Strain out solids and pour over finished ribs.


I've found that adding this glaze as a finishing sauce on the table works best. Although a quick coating and a few seconds on a hot grill gives a nice candy carmelization to the glaze.
Also, it seems to match up really well with Southern Pork Rub.
