Eddas Tex Mex Ribs

Eddas Tex Mex Ribs are really good, not spicy, just have some "zing" to them. She actually adds some crushed chili peppers to it to make it hot.

This recipe about how to barbecue pork ribs was written by my niece and passed along to me for this cooking site.

It is a wonderful bbq pork ribs recipe. Boil ribs before grilling for Eddas Tex Mex Ribs, which has to be one of the "best grilling recipes".

A very easy way of cooking pork ribs; then to barbeque pork ribs, which taste so good, especially if served along with German yellow potato salad which she and her mom also make.

Give this recipe a try, I am sure you will agree Edda is a great cook!


  • **This only covers one rack of ribs, double or triple the ingredients if you are making a larger quantity.

  • 2 tsp. Veg. Oil
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)...or more if you like!
  • 1/3 cup minced onion
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 tbsp. cider vinegar (white vinegar work too)
  • 4 tsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. Chili powder
  • 1 tsp. dried Oregano
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 liquid smoke (optional-but good!)


  • Bring ribs to a boil with 1/2 tsp salt, then simmer 45 min- 1 hour. Drain well and let cool.

  • The Sauce:

  • Heat oil and cook garlic and onion for 3 min.
  • Add other ingredients and simmer for 3-4 minutes. Let cool.
  • Pour over cooled ribs and cover (Extra large ziplock bag works good).
  • Turn occasionally for 4 hours.
  • Save 1/3 sauce for dipping if you like, but if you pile it all on before cooking, it's really good.
  • Grill ribs on barbeque over medium heat or in oven until nicely browned (about 1/2 hour).
  • Simmering the ribs first also gets rid of some of the fat and "gunk" that isn't good for us....and they're still delicious!
