The Best Pork Rib Recipes

Pork ribs are one of those cuts that always satisfies. They're low on effort and big on delivery; they just need some time to tenderize. No matter how they're prepared, ribs are a huge crowd pleaser.

Ibérico ribs, like Campo Grande's St. Louis Ribs, are even bigger on flavor and make for a seriously unforgettable rib-eating experience. These are a few of our best pork rib recipes featuring the unbeatable Ibérico St. Louis Ribs cut. 

How to Make the Best Pork Ribs

Iberian pork ribs can be grilled, simmered, baked, or even a combination of the three. No matter which method you choose, you're looking for the ribs to easily separate from each other and/or fall off the bone. That's when you'll know that they're ready to eat. 

While Ibérico ribs don't need much, their bold flavor and high fat content lends well to sweet and herby combinations, like BBQ sauce, honey, or an herb sherry glaze. Choose your own adventure. 

The Best Pork Rib Recipes, Ibérico Style 

Fall-Off-the-Bone BBQ Ribs 

We recommend preparing the BBQ sauce a day in advance so the flavors can meld and mingle. 

Ingredients

  • 2.25 lbs. Campo Grande St. Louis Ribs 
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • Juniper berries
  • Coarse salt
  • 2 spring onions
  • 11 oz. (weighed) ketchup
  • 4 oz. brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon sweet or hot paprika
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce.

BBQ Sauce Preparation 

  1. Chop the spring onions, removing the stems and roots.
  2. Drizzle oil in a frying pan and cook the spring onions until soft.
  3. Add the brown sugar and stir until the onions finish caramelizing.
  4. Pour in the remaining ketchup, honey, vinegar, paprika, soy sauce, and pepper and mix. 
  5. Let simmer over low heat for five minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and set aside. 

St. Louis Ribs Preparation

  1. Remove the ribs from fridge 2 hours before you're ready to cook. 
  2.  Pour enough water into a large pot or dutch oven to cover the ribs once they are placed inside. 
  3. Heat the water over medium and once the water is hot, add a pinch of salt, along with the thyme and the juniper. 
  4. Add the ribs to the water and cover. Turn down the heat to low and let cook for 2 hours
  5. Remove the ribs from the pot very carefully. They will fall apart easily as they will be very tender.
  6. Brush the ribs with the barbecue sauce and place them on the grill or in the oven. If it's the oven, you will need to preheat to 325ºF and cook for 25 minutes. If you're using a grill, cook over medium heat and place the rack 6 inches from the coals.
  7. You will know that the ribs are ready to eat when the meat separates easily from the bone.
