If you’re looking for an impressive dish to feed a crowd, look no further than mustard marinated ribs. Pork ribs are a great option because they are affordable and can easily be cooked in large quantities.

Below, I will discuss how to make mustard marinated ribs and provide tips on cooking them so they come out perfect every time. I will also include information about the benefits of pork ribs and why they are such a popular choice for feeding large groups of people.

If you have leftover ribs, you can chop up the meat to make nachos or tacos and continue enjoying this simple recipe for a few days after you make it.

What are Mustard Marinated Pork Ribs?

Mustard marinated ribs are a type of pork rib that has been cooked in mustard sauce. They can be made with any cut of pork, but the most common cuts used for this dish include baby back and spare ribs.

The ribs are usually grilled or baked in an oven before being served alongside other foods like onion rings, mashed potatoes, or coleslaw on the side. You can use this recipe for beef ribs also, but I prefer it with pork.

These are not like traditional grilled ribs that you would serve with BBQ sauce. The marinade itself gives it so much amazing flavor that you don’t need any other sauces to go with it.

Why You Should Make Mustard Marinated Ribs for Large Groups

Pork ribs are a great main course option when you’re cooking for large groups because they are easy to cook in bulk and can be prepared ahead of time by marinating them overnight or longer with mustard sauce before baking them in the oven later on when your guests arrive.

We make ribs often when we are watching an important game with family and friends, and we always get compliments.

The Benefits of Pork Ribs

Pork ribs are a healthy and affordable option when feeding a large group of people.

They are an excellent source of protein, and they also contain several essential vitamins and minerals like zinc, selenium, iron, and vitamin B12. In addition, pork ribs are a good source of omega-three fatty acids, which are beneficial for maintaining heart health and preventing chronic diseases like cancer.

I always pick up some baby back ribs or spare ribs at the store at the beginning of the month, because I know I will use them at some point during the month.

How to Make Mustard Marinated Ribs

To make mustard marinated ribs, you will need:

  • pork ribs (either baby back or spareribs)
  • olive oil
  • Dijon mustard (yellow mustard won’t have as great of a flavor)
  • brown sugar
  • lime juice
  • honey
  • white wine
  • water
  • garlic powder
  • salt and black pepper to taste

The first step is to mix together the olive oil, Dijon mustard, brown sugar, lime juice, honey, water and white cooking wine in a bowl until well combined.

Next, pour this mixture over your pork ribs in an oven-safe dish, baking sheet, or roasting pan lined with aluminum foil for easy cleanup later on when it’s time to eat! **Tip – remove the thin membranes from the bottom of the ribs to make sure they are easier to eat once they are cooked.

After marinating at least 45 minutes at room temperature or longer in the refrigerator they are ready to bake.

When you’re ready to cook the ribs, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. and bake the ribs in the oven for 60 minutes until they are cooked through. Serve with your favourite sides!

We hope you enjoy this delicious recipe for mustard marinated pork ribs! They are perfect for feeding a large group of people and provide plenty of protein and essential vitamins and minerals.

Pork ribs are a healthy and affordable option when cooking for a lot of people, so be sure to give them a try next time you’re planning a big get together!
