Grilled Pork Ribs – Baby Back Ribs On The Grill

Baby back ribs must be America’s undisputed Grilled Pork Ribs favorite and this recipe will demonstrate exactly why. Absolutely delicious!!!

 

The mesquite flavored marinade is enhanced with bay leaves, onion, and whole black peppercorns.

A simple mixture of barbecue sauce and brown sugar is basted over the racks as they grill, imparting a welcome dose of sweetness to balance the savory essence of the marinade.

Since the marinade in this recipe is used as a flavoring for the rib boiling water, you don’t need to allow extra time for the marinating process.

This is an excellent recipe for first-time rib grillers as well as practiced hands, so keep it handy for backyard parties and family picnics.

You can be the king of backyard BBQ's with this Baby Back Ribs recipe! 

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: American
Servings: 4
Calories: 275 kcal
Ingredients
  • 2 racks baby back ribs about 1 ½ pounds each
  • 1 jar 12 ounces mesquite-flavored marinade
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 2 tablespoons whole black peppercorns
  • 2 large yellow onions quartered
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce – mild sweet, smoky or hot – your choice
  • ½ cup dark brown sugar
Instructions
  1. Put the baby back rib racks in a large roasting pan and add enough water to cover them. Stir in the mesquite marinade, bay leave and onions. Sprinkle the peppercorns over the ribs and into the water.
  2. Bring the pan to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to medium and cook the ribs at a low boil for about 45 minutes. The rib meat should be tender but not quite falling off the bone. Skim any foam that rises to the surface.
  3. Remove the racks from the liquid and drain them on a sheet pan.
  4. Light a charcoal barbecue or heat a gas grill for medium heat. Lightly oil the grate.
  5. Whisk together the barbecue sauce and brown sugar. Brush the ribs with the sauce and grill them, with the cover closed, about 7 minutes per side. Brush the ribs once more with the sauce before you take them off the grill.

 

Good To Know About Grilled Pork Ribs – Enhance the mesquite essence of your grilled ribs by adding prepared mesquite chips to the hot charcoal of your barbecue.

If you are using a gas grill, soak the mesquite chips as you wood for a barbecue by soaking them in water. Put a cup of the chips in a heatproof container and set it next to the gas burner.

You can also put them in a small skillet and set it directly over one of the burners to get the smoke going. It will intensify if you keep the cover closed while the ribs are cooking.

Food For Thought – The cooking broth from the ribs makes an excellent base for other dishes. Strain the broth and discard the peppercorns and bay leaves.

The onions can be wrapped in foil with herbs and olive oil or butter and Parmesan cheese. Put the wrapped onions on the grill while the ribs are cooking and serve them on the side.

The cooking broth can be chilled and de-fatted and frozen until you need it again. Reduce the broth and use it to simmer pork in a crockpot, or add it to your water for making corned beef brisket.

A well-seasoned broth can always add that little something extra to almost any dish you’re making. Use the broth from these Grilled Pork Ribs!

Pork steaks are a nice change from pork chops. Especially when they are grilled juicy and tender! 

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Barbecue
Keyword: Barbecue Pork Recipe
Servings: 4
Calories: 320 kcal
Ingredients
  • 4 pork blade steaks 1 to 1 ½ -inches thick
  • ½ cup barbecue sauce
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic or garlic powder
  • Kosher salt and ground black pepper.
Instructions
  1. Light a charcoal barbecue or heat a gas grill to medium heat. Lightly oil the grate.
  2. Whisk together the barbecue sauce, honey, Worcestershire sauce, mustard and garlic.
  3. Season the pork steaks with the kosher salt and ground black pepper. Grill the meat about 8 minutes per side, then brush them with the sauce. Continue to cook about 5 minutes more, brushing frequently with the sauce on both sides. Serve hot.

Food For Thought About This Barbecue Pork Recipe

If pork steaks are not available, try this recipe with pork loin chops and adjust the cooking time depending on the thickness of the chops.

For even more flavor, marinate the pork ahead of time in the sauce. Add the salt and pepper to the marinade, then refrigerate the meat in the sauce for at least 2 hours.

Good To Know

In case it’s still winter when you want to try these steaks, use an indoor electric grill, such as the George Forman Grill, or broil under a medium heat broiler. Line the broiler pan with foil to catch the sticky sauce as you baste the meat.

Barbecue Pork Loin Recipe

This Barbecue Pork Loin Recipe is perfect for backyard barbecues and picnics. The loin is cut into bite-sized pieces and grilled on skewers.

Dress them up any way you like – thread some chunks of pineapple, fennel or summer squash onto the skewers and grill over hot coals.

The secret here is to marinade the pork at least overnight, and longer if possible.

The marinade will form a caramelized crust on the kebabs as they cook, keeping the meat moist and tender inside.

Delicious and inexpensive pork is perfect for guests at your next backyard BBQ!

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Barbecue
Keyword: Barbecue Pork Loin Recipe
Servings: 6
Calories: 320 kcal
Ingredients
  • 1 boneless pork loin 4 pounds, cut into 1 ½-inch pieces
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1 large yellow onion chopped
  • 5 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 10 skewers metal or bamboo soaked in water
Instructions
  1. Whisk together the brown sugar, soy sauce, onion, garlic and pepper. Combine the marinade with the pieces of pork loin in a resealable bag or glass container with a lid.
  2. Refrigerate the pork overnight, stirring the meat occasionally to keep it evenly marinated.
  3. Light a charcoal barbeque or heat a gas grill over high heat. Lightly oil the grate.
  4. Thread the pieces of pork loin on the skewers and discard the marinade. Grill over the hot coals until cooked through, about 3 to 5 minutes per side. Serve hot.

Food For Thought About This Barbecue Pork Loin Recipe

Make skewers with vegetables or fruit as mentioned above. Since the pork pieces will cook rapidly, it’s a good idea to either pre-cook the vegetables in a microwave or separately on the grill.

Good To Know – If you’re in a crunch for time, it isn’t necessary to marinate the pork overnight, but try for at least 2 hours at the minimum.

A less expensive option for the boneless pork loin is a pork shoulder or butt roast. The meat is fattier, but trim away as much as you can and cut the meat into bite-sized pieces. These cuts are evenly more flavorful than the boneless pork loin. You can also grill the boneless loin as a whole piece or cut into 4 to 8 serving pieces. Adjust your cooking time for the larger pieces of meat.

The tenderloin is marinated and then basted with the same marinade while it grills over hot charcoal and develops a mahogany crust from the charred marinade.
Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Grilling
Keyword: Grilled Pork Tenderloin
Servings: 8
Calories: 280 kcal
Ingredients
  • 2 pork tenderloins about 1 pound each
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ cup rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dried minced onion
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 large cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon ginger peeled and minced
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
Instructions
  1. Whisk together the soy sauce, honey, rice wine vinegar, ketchup, brown sugar, dried minced onion, ground cinnamon, minced garlic, and the minced ginger.

  2. Season the pork tenderloins with the ground black pepper and put them in a large resealable plastic bag. Pour half the marinade over the pork and seal the bag. Reserve the remaining sauce in an airtight container and refrigerate it.

  3. Marinate the tenderloins for about 8 hours, turning them frequently.

  4. Light a charcoal barbeque or heat a gas grill for medium-high heat. Lightly oil the grate.

  5. Drain the pork from the marinade and shake off any excess. Grill the tenderloins for 6 to 8 minutes per side, or until they are cooked through. Baste them frequently with the reserved portion of the marinade. Let the cooked meat sit for 5 to 10 minutes before carving into medallions.

 

Good To Know – Pork tenderloins are easily broiled or roasted because of their small size.

Oven-roast the tenderloins at 400F about 20 minutes, turning once or twice. Take the meat out of the oven before it reaches 160F and let it sit for about 5 minutes – it will reach 160F on its own.

The sauce will darken and form a roasted crust. Add a little water to the baking dish if it starts to burn.

To broil, preheat the oven broiler and line the broiler pan with aluminum foil. Broil the meat, close to the source of heat, turning and basting, about 5 minutes per side. Let the meat sit for a few minutes before slicing.

Food For Thought – For exceedingly tender pork tenderloin, marinate the meat for up to 3 days in the marinade.

The flavors will be even more pronounced, and the meat will have absorbed the tenderizing aspects of the rice wine vinegar. Turn the meat frequently to make sure it is evenly marinated.

Use the marinade to baste the pork whether you grill, roast, broil or saute it.

To make a sauce, reduce it in a small pan, remove it from the heat and whisk in 3 tablespoons of cold unsalted butter.

Chinese BBQ Pork – Asian Ginger Pork Chops

Chinese BBQ Pork is highlighted with the zing of fresh ginger and orange juice.  It has a little spicy heat from the chili garlic paste.

That spicy heat counteracts the sweetness of the brown sugar and highlights the flavors of this Asian-inspired marinade for pork chops.

Save a little of the marinade to use as a basting sauce.

The high heat of the grill will seal in the juices and maintain the tenderness of the pork, especially if you are able to let the meat marinate overnight.

The chops will take on a deep glaze as they grill.

Serve with steamed rice and mixed vegetables for a relaxed and flavorful meal.

Loin chops are deliciously flavored with ginger, orange juice, brown sugar and garlic. Truly an Oriental delight to impress guests at your backyard BBQ! Prep time includes two hours for marinating. 

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Barbecue
Servings: 6
Calories: 136 kcal
Ingredients
  • 6 pork loin chops 1/2 inch thick
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger peeled and minced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic minced
  • ½ cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons grated orange zest
  • 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon chili garlic paste
  • Kosher salt and ground black pepper
Instructions
  1. Season the pork chops with the kosher salt and black pepper.
  2. Whisk together the orange juice, garlic, ginger, orange zest, brown sugar and chili garlic paste.
  3. Put the pork chops in a glass baking dish and pour the marinade over them. Turn the chops to cover them evenly. Cover the dish and marinate at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight. Turn the chops regularly to keep them coated.
  4. Light a charcoal barbeque or heat a gas grill for high heat. Lightly oil the grate.
  5. Shake excess marinade from the pork chops and grill them, about 5 to 6 minutes per side, basting with some of the marinade. Pull them off the grill and cover them with aluminum foil and let them rest for about 5 minutes before serving

Good To Know – In the absence of a grill or barbecue, these chops can be baked. Preheat the oven to 350F. Keep the chops in the same dish they marinated in and put them in the oven. The heat will evaporate some of the liquid and the sugar should caramelize the marinade into a glaze. Be sure to turn them at least once while baking.

Food For Thought – The longer the pork chops marinate the more of the stronger flavors they will absorb. If you just want the essence of orange and ginger, either reduce the amount of orange juice, zest and ginger, or marinate the chops for less time.

Grilled Chicken Wings – Better Make Extras!

These Grilled Chicken Wings are positively scrumptious and so easy. There is NO way you’re going to have leftovers! Try to make extras.

 

If you bite into one of these hot off the grill the rest may not make it into the house!

I took a couple over to the neighbors and they almost bit my fingers off to get them!

The marinade is simply wonderful and so easy. I marinated the wings for 6 hours to overnight. I also use 1 tablespoon of fresh ginger finely grated instead of ground ginger.

Make extras because they are just as good cold the next day.
