I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Mustard Ribs
...in your mind.
Mustard Ribs

Mustard Ribs


  • 2 racks pork ribs
  • 1/3 cup white vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced small
  • 3 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup yellow mustard
  • 3/4 cup whole grain mustard
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce (Cholula is ideal btw)
  • Kosher salt & fresh ground pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Place ribs in their racks (I just mean do not cut them) on a large baking sheet, add vinegar and cover tightly with aluminum foil
  3. Bake 75 minutes or until very tender – but while they cook
  4. Melt butter in a small pot and add onions & garlic – cook until soft, about 5 min
  5. Add mustards, brown sugar, vinegar, hot sauce and season with s & p
  6. Simmer over medium-low heat for 10-15 minutes
  7. Remove ribs from oven and carefully lift off tin foil - watch out for steam
  8. The ribs are now fully cooked and just need to be ’sauced’ finished’ and you have 2 options:
  9. OPTION 1:
  10. Heat bbq to medium and place ribs meat side down without sauce but you can baste the back with the sauce
  11. Cook until they start to develop grill marks, and turn over - now baste the top
  12. You could stop here after they grill a bit on this side, or you could baste them a bit more and then give them a couple more minutes meat side down - that’s what I do, or
  13. OPTION 2:
  14. Heat broiler to high and place ribs on a baking sheet about 4 inches from the heat source and brush top of the ribs well with the sauce and cook until they start getting a bit brown - then flip to the back, sauce and cook some more. Flip back to the top (sauce again) and cook until they get that beautiful rib look
  15. Then, no matter how you cooked them, give ’em one extra baste them after they’ve been removed and just before you serve them
