Best Ribs ever


I love this recipe. This is another one of those recipes that I’m not quiet sure where I got it from. I had just wrote it down and threw it in my recipe folder with plans of trying it later. When I did try it later, it quickly ended up being a family favorite. I’ve made it a few dozen times. My family begs for this to be made in the summer months. I’ve already got requests to make it again soon!

All Purpose Marinade


I love chicken. It’s my second favorite love. I love my grill too. What I love about this recipe is it’s sweet, it’s tangy, it’s salty, it just blends well. I invited a cub scout parent over once while he was having a rough time after a separation. We were just trying to be nice. Now every time I see this fellow, he says…About that chicken! LOL

1 cup of vegetable oil or olive oil

3/4 cup soy sauce

1/3 Cup lemon juice

1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce

1/4 cup prepared mustard

1 tablespoon black pepper

2 large garlic cloves

Chicken, Beef, or Pork. You could possibly use another meat, but I’ve not tried it.


Add all ingredients together.




Marinade 8-24 hours. Grill or bake

Morton Sea Salt Rub?


Today is the mother in law’s birthday….I had hubby ask her what she wanted for dinner and she said ribs. My go to recipe for ribs is a marinade that takes all day. I had two hours until dinner time. What’s a girl to do??

I decided to do a rub. Normally, I make the rub for it, but I just wasn’t feeling it today.  I wanted to do something easy enough. I spent five minutes looking at rubs and marinades. Finally I told the husband “we’ve never tried this before…let’s just do it!?” He agreed. So I bought this bad boy.

I’m shocked how good this rub is. I rubbed it on and threw it in the oven with my ribs covered. I did this for an hour or so. When I took them out they were so tender. I put on some BBQ sauce and put it back in under broil for literally 2 minutes. She LOVED it. Said it was better than most she’d eaten.

Happy birthday to my Mother in Law!18834312_10154643591760895_120238153_n
