Country Pork Ribs with Lime Chipotle Sauce

2 to 3 racks of country style pork ribs
Juice of 2 fresh limes
1/4 to 1/2 cup of Chipotle Sauce

  • The day before you plan to eat the ribs, put them on to marinate. Put the ribs in a shallow dish and squeeze the fresh limes over the ribs, rubbing the juice into the cut pieces between the bones.
  • Drizzle the Chipotle Sauce over the ribs and rub it into the meat well. Use enough sauce to be sure that the meat has been rubbed thoroughly. Let the meat soak in the mixture for at least 24 hours. Longer will be even better!
  • Turn the meat once or twice, rubbing the marinade into the meat each time. Take the meat out of the refrigerator 2 hours early.

    Grilling method: Cook the ribs slowly, capturing the juices if possible to baste over the ribs as they cook! Use any marinade left in the dish for a last minute basting before you take the ribs from the grill.

    Oven method: Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Place the ribs in the oven in an uncovered pan and cook for 20 minutes. Turn the oven down to 350. Baste the meat with the juices and continue to cook for another 45 minutes (or until done.) Baste with the Chipotle Sauce juices and serve!
