Grilled BBQ Pork Ribs Recipe

Grilled Pork Ribs Recipe, with Spicy Jalapeno & Peanut Marinade and Wine Pairings

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour, 20 minutes
Serves: 6

This Grilled BBQ Pork Rib Recipe is a mix of different influences - a bit of Mexican flair with jalapenos and lime, combined with a bit of Thai flavor with the addition of peanuts and garlic. By using a marinade that's more of a paste in consistency, it both infuses the ribs with delicious flavor, and also really sticks to the meat.

With the marinade's sophisticated flavor, a lighter bodied red is best, while one that also has a good core of acidity will counterbalance the richness of the ribs. Beaujolais is an ideal choice, with a sunny freshness that we love with Summer grilled foods. For our splurge, we choose a Cru Beaujolais from the Juliénas village, while our steal is a blend from different villages.

Wine Pairing

2010 Domaine Pascal Granger Juliénas, Beaujolais
This Cru Beaujolais shows the varietal's classic sour cherry flavor with a lively tartness. ($21)

2008 Louis Jadot Beaujolais-Villages
More ripe and suave than the Juliénas, this is sure to please almost any palate. ($15)

Grilled BBQ Pork Ribs Ingredients:

2 lbs country-style pork ribs
2 jalapenos
1 cup of peanuts
2 large shallots
1 clove of garlic
1 lime

Grilled BBQ Pork Ribs Cooking Directions:

1.) Remove peel from shallots and garlic. Juice lime, and remove stem from jalapenos.

2.) Add peanuts, jalapenos, garlic, shallots and lime juice to a food processor or blender and mix until it forms a nice paste.

3.) Season ribs generously with salt and fresh ground black pepper, and spread paste evenly on all sides of ribs. Refrigerate ribs for 1 hour to let the flavors sink in.

4.) Prepare grill - if using a charcoal grill, shift heated coals to one side of the grill.

5.) Cook ribs for one minute on each side on the hottest part of the grill - either over the coals or on the lowest rack of the gas grill.

6.) Move ribs to the cooler side of the grill or a higher rack to finish. Cook uncovered for 10 minutes.

7.) Serve with a squeeze of lime and enjoy!
