Costillitas recipe - Cuban Style Baby Back Ribs

courtesy of the Cocina Cubana Club founded by Pascual Perez & chef Sonia Martinez


6-8 lb lean baby back pork ribs
8 Cloves of garlic
Juice of 3 large lemons
1/4 tsp. ground oregano
1 cup sour orange juice
(Or 1 Cup of Orange Juice with the juice of 1 large lime ( I use 1/2 & 1/2 of each)
5 tsp of salt
2 teaspoon of olive oil

Cut the ribs in 5 to 7 inches sections. Wash well under faucet and dry thoroughly with paper towel. Smash the garlic cloves in a mortar or garlic press.

Mix the sour orange juice, lime juice, oregano, garlic, olive oil and 1/ 2 teaspoon of salt. Set aside about 1/2 cup of this mix ( the marinating sauce) to be used when serving. Place ribs in a large non-metal container and pour the rest of mix over the ribs. Rub the remaining salt thoroughly on all surfaces of the ribs. Place in the refrigerator and let stand for 2 to 3 hours.

Set you gas or charcoal grill to low and place ribs so that they are not exposed to direct flame. Cook slowly for about 30 - 45 minutes. Time will depend on the temperature of the your grill . (Cook very slowly to insure tenderness). Turn ribs once or twice while cooking. Once they are cooked, increase the heat to high or in the case of a charcoal grill place ribs over direct high charcoal heat in order to brown. Turn as needed to brown both sides well.

Serve with black beans and rice!
