Today is my birthday! Woo! Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me, happy birthday to meeeeeeeee, happy birthday to me! Ha ha ha, yeah, I’m special. I made a very special meal yesterday to celebrate, and it was such a success that even Vivienne was picking at the bones to get every last morsel of meat off them. To make these pork ribs with mango habanero sauce, I picked up some Farmland All Natural pork ribs at Walmart, which are raised here in the US, with no artificial ingredients or preservatives, as well as minimally processed. I love grilling a cut of meat I can trust, know what I mean?
I know grilling alone can be daunting, but grilling ribs? Scary! But in all honesty, when it came down to cooking these bad boys, it was easy, so don’t be scared. I always start by boiling them for a good 30 minutes in salt-seasoned water, then I pat them down and apply a thick dry rub before I plop them on a a medium-high grill for about 10 minutes, turning once and basting with my mango habanero sauce thoroughly.
Now, although I enjoy a standard BBQ sauce, I am obsessed with this mango habanero sauce. It’s both sweet and spicy, with a deep, lingering burn that’ll have you sucking in air through your teeth. Delicious. Paired with cilantro-lime rice and grilled, peppered zucchini and squash, this dish is infused with Latin flavors that will leave your taste buds dancing in delight.
You want this mango habanero sauce to be sweet, but not overpowering, so when you’re adjusting the sugar-content, be very careful not to go overboard. If the spice is just too much for you, start with one habanero, or switch then out completely for some serrano peppers. I hope you’ll go for the heat though, it’s worth it.
