Time: 35 to 50 mins
The summer is here and it’s time to fire up the grill. Chef Mark Cleveland gives his personal take on how to make the perfect Marinated Ribs to impress your family and guests at those hot summer cookouts.
- 10 oz of pork ribs
- Pre-made marinade or make your own by mixing Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, ketchup, garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper together in a bowl. (For best results, marinate the ribs the day before you grill and refrigerate)
- ¾ lb of fingerling potatoes, Dutch yellow potatoes, or diced red potatoes
- 2 tablespoons of seasoning blend such as Everson Spice California Garlic & Pepper, Herb Crusted Seasoning, or Cajun Seasoning.
- ¼ cup of scallions, sliced thin
- Sprigs of fresh thyme
If not using premade marinade, mix together Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, ketchup, garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper together in a mixing bowl. For best results, marinate the ribs using a brush the day before so the marinade fully embeds in the meat. Place the potatoes in the Ready. Chef. Go! Grilling bag and sprinkle your seasoning of choice on top. Add in half of the sliced scallions and fresh thyme, keeping the rest in reserve, and then gently shake the bag to distribute the ingredients evenly. Put the marinated rack of ribs on top of the potatoes and seal the bag.
Grill: BBQ on an open grill with the foil side facing down on a medium flame for 30 to 45 minutes or until fully cooked.
Conventional Oven: Preheat the oven to 450° F and roast for about 30 minutes or until fully cooked.
Wait a few minutes for the food to cool before opening the bag and then plate to serve. Garnish the ribs with additional scallions and fresh thyme for presentation.
