  1. Heat oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, onion and habañero chile. Cook, stirring, for 5 to 7 minutes, until softened. Pour into a blender; add tomato sauce and vinegar; blend until smooth.
  2. Pour mixture back into skillet and stir in honey, Worcestershire sauce and mustard. Cook over medium-low heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Set aside til ready to use.
  3. Heat oven to 450°. Sprinkle flour inside a large foil cooking bag. Season ribs with salt and pepper and place in the bag. Fold open edge of bag, following package directions.
  4. Place bag on baking sheet and bake at 450° for 75 minutes. Carefully cut open bag and fold back, allowing steam to escape. Drain off accumulated cooking juices and discard bag. Place ribs in a large baking dish and add 3/4°C of the sauce. Stir to coat ribs with sauce. Let stand while grill is heating.
  5. ***I didn't actually do steps #3 & 4 the way the original recipe called for - I lined a 9x13 pan with heavy-duty foil, placed the ribs in the pan, then covered the pan with more foil, sealing well. After baking them I drained off the juices and returned the ribs to the same pan and coated them with the sauce.
  6. Heat gas grill to medium-high or prepare charcoal grill with medium-hot coals. Lightly coat grill rack with oil or nonstick cooking spray. Grill the ribs for 4-5 minutes per side, generously basting with the sauce, until nicely browned. Serve with additional sauce on the side.
