This is a great mop for all kinds of ribs (or any pork in general). You get the tenderizing power of the vinegar and a whole lot of flavor from the herbs and spices.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 11 minutes

Total Time: 21 minutes

Yield: Makes about 1 1/2 cups/350 mL


  • 1/2 cup/120 mL water
  • 1/2 cup/120 mL vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons/45 mL yellow mustard
  • 3 tablespoons/45 mL olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon/15 mL chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon/15 mL garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL cayenne


Mix all ingredients together and store in the refrigerator. This mop will stay good for about three months refrigerated. Make ahead to allow the flavors to blend.

Rib Mop, Member Kenny8649

I don't really think this adds a bunch to the overall flavor to the ribs, but it does a nice job of keeping the meat moist and it is very easy to make. It's okay.
