    Pork spare ribs with a store-bought rub, slow roasted/braised in the oven, and then glazed with maple syrup - chipotle sauce and broiled.

    It's pretty common in Korean cuisine. For pork and chicken, they use gochujang (chili paste) mixed with mul yut (malted barely syrup). Past few years, I have been noticing quite a few similarities between Korean food and Mexican. Kinda makes sense that Roy Choi is doing so well with his Korean tacos.

    I've done Tabasco type sauces and maple syrup, chicken and waffles for example.  Chipotle should be good also, will have to try.

    To be honest - the chipotle flavor is pretty strong, and I am not sure that the flavor (not taste) of the maple syrup quite comes thru.  Next time, I might try using agave nectar instead.  I also added a little ketchup and some vinegar for sourness.
