I knew ribs would be great with mustard, but I didn’t know HOW good they would be! Seriously amazing. My husband isn’t the biggest meat fan and even he loved them! I seriously ate the entire second rack by myself.
This is where knowing your oven thermometer is key, if it runs too hot, like mine, you can easily overcook and dry out your meat. I got the second batch right, Mmmmmm.
You do have to start the night before, or the morning of, so your ribs can sit with the rub on them, it’s worth it, trust me. the glaze is easy, just be careful when adding the juice from the meat.
Mustard Glazed Pork Ribs
- 1/4 C kosher salt
- 2 Tbsp black pepper
- 2 Tbsp packed light brown sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 1/2 tsp fresh rosemary chopped
- 2 tsp mustard powder
- 1 tsp smoked paprika powder
- 1/2 tsp chipotle chili powder
- 2 slabs ribs about 2 pounds apiece
- 1/2 cup brewed Pero you can use coffee if that's what you have
- 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
- 3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 2 cloves minced garlic
- 1/4 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
- Pinch of ground allspice
- 1/2 cup yellow mustard
- Salt to taste
- Mix together the salt, pepper, brown sugar, garlic, rosemary, mustard powder, smoked paprika and chipotle chile powder. Taste and adjust the seasonings.
- Clean the ribs with cold water and pat dry. Rub both sides of both ribs evenly.
- Then double wrap with foil, making sure to keep track of which side is the bone side. Refrigerate the ribs overnight, the longer the better.
- To bake, preheat the oven to 300 degrees and line two baking sheets with foil. Place the foil-wrapped ribs, bone side up, on the sheets, and cook for 1 hour and 30 minutes.
- During the last 30 mins they cook stir together the brewed pero, syrup, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, chipotle chile powder and allspice in a saucepan.
- Cook over medium until the sugar has dissolved, then whisk in the mustard until well combined.
- After the 1 hour and 30 minutes, remove the ribs from the oven.
- Gently open the foil (there will be a lot of steam, so be careful) and take 1/4 cup of the meat juices and stir them into the sauce. Adjust seasonings and add salt to taste.
- With tongs, remove the ribs from the foil and place back on the sheet (on new foil) meat side up. (Discard the foil that wrapped the ribs, as well as the remaining meat juices).
- Brush the meat side of the slabs with the sauce and return to the oven. Cook for 30 minutes uncovered and then brush each slab with the sauce again. Cook for 30 more minutes. Remove from the oven, turn on the broiler, brush each slab with sauce and then cook under the broiler for 1-3 minutes, or until darkened and dark spots appear.
- Let the ribs sit about 5 mins, then cut the ribs apart and serve!
I glazed generously, it was actually really fun, I had never made ribs before. Is it weird that I had to watch a youtube video on how to CUT the ribs after they were done! I felt like such a dork! But I’m excited to try more rib recipes!!!
