BBQ Mojo Ribs


  • 1 bottle of La Lechonera Mojo Criollo

  • 2 racks of baby back pork ribs (4 lbs)

  • 1 bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce


  • Remove the silver skin from the underside of the ribs by sliding your fingers under the thin membrane and pulling it off. 

  • Place ribs in a single layer in a large roasting pan.

  • Pour Mojo La Lechonera over ribs until completely covered, then cover tightly with heavy-duty foil.

  • Place the roasting pan into the oven and bake until the ribs are tender, about 1 hour & 15 minutes. 

  • Preheat the grill to medium heat. Grill the ribs on each side for 15 minutes, watching and flipping when necessary, for 30 minutes total.

  • Mix equal parts barbecue sauce and La Lechonera Mojo Criollo in a separate container in order to baste the ribs. Baste ribs with mojo barbecue mixture the last 10 minutes. (The sauce goes on at the end because it is sugar based and you don't want to burn your ribs.) 

  • Let the racks rest 5 minutes before slicing into individual ribs and serve along with extra sauce.
