Grilled Country Style Pork Ribs

I used pork country-style ribs which are not ribs, but blade steaks or chops. It is a very inexpensive cut of meat and stays so juicy on the grill. Serve with a simple sauce of mayonnaise, basil, and Sriracha which puts this rich meat over the top delicious.

Serves 4-6


6 ounces beer - do not use anything too bitter or hoppy, just a simple lager is best

1-2 cloves crushed garlic

Juice of 1 lime

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 teaspoon each kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

1 tablespoon whole grain mustard

1 teaspoon dried thyme

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 tablespoon honey

4 pound country style spare ribs cut in 4” long pieces


1/2 cup mayonnaise

6 basil leaves chopped

1 teaspoon Sriracha sauce or to taste

  • Combine the marinade ingredients in a large bowl

  • Add the ribs turn them in the marinade

  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours or more

  • Remove the ribs from the marinade (discard the marinade)

  • Grill the pork over medium high heat and watch them carefully so they do not burn, turning occasionally for about 10-12 minutes, or until they are browned and their juices run clear

  • Allow the ribs to rest about 10 minutes

  • Slice the ribs in bite size pieces

  • Combine the sauce ingredients in a small bowl and serve

A perfect balance of fat and meat for grilling
