Maple Fig Pork Marinade & Sauce
I had a girl’s weekend planned at the cottage and, of course, knew I would have pork on the menu. I had a rack of ribs in the freezer and was torn on what to dress them up with.
I had scored a bottle of maple syrup as part of a Canadian-themed gift pack I got in a tacky Christmas exchange, and was inspired to make something sweet and delicious to top the ribs with. I looked at a few recipes on line and came up with the following (basically what I could find in my cupboards) – a super easy marinade that I used as a marinade and topping for my girl’s weekend pork ribs.
Maple Fig Pork Marinade
- ½ cup maple syrup
- 1 cup red wine
- ½ cup dried figs
- ½ cup soup stock
- Bring ingredients just to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer for 15 minutes.
- Remove from heat and when sauce is cool, puree with hand blender.
- Use as marinade or sauce topping for your next serving of pork ribs, tenderloin or chops.
I thought the sauce was so good I used it to dip my ribs in!
