3 pounds baby-back pork ribs
Kosher salt and pepper
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
2 teaspoons cider vinegar
1/2 head napa or green cabbage, shredded (4 cups)
2 crisp apples (such as Braeburn or Granny Smith), cut into matchstick-size strips
1 bunch scallions (white and light green parts), thinly sliced


Heat grill to medium. Season the ribs with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Place on grill, cover, and cook 20 to 25 minutes, turning often, until cooked through and tender.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the Worcestershire, mustard, and brown sugar. Baste the ribs with the sauce during the last 5 minutes of cooking.

In a large bowl, whisk together the sour cream, horseradish, vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add the cabbage, apples, and scallions and toss. Cut the ribs apart, divide among plates, and serve with the slaw.

Shortcut: If you're pressed for time, use pork chops, which require just 12 minutes of cooking. Turn them only once.
