This is a great mop for pork ribs, but can also be used on beef. The meat will benefit from the tenderizing power of the vinegar and receive a whole lot of flavor from the herbs and spices.

What You'll Need

  • 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

How to Make It

1. Mix all ingredients together.

2. Store in the refrigerator for a few hours before using. This mop will stay good for about 1 week refrigerated. Make ahead to allow the flavors to blend.
