Ribs with mojo

Published: Wed, March 5, 2014 @ 12:00 a.m.

Flavors, ingredients serve as foundation

Family Features

The aromatic flavors and wholesome ingredients found in comfort food can take us back to another place in time — a place that conjures up happy, feel-good memories, along with the completely satisfied feeling that comes after enjoying a hearty meal.

But those same flavors and ingredients can also serve as a foundation for creating new, inspiring twists on traditional dishes from the past.

For James Beard Award winner, author and chef, Michelle Bernstein, the traditional dishes she remembers most vividly from her childhood include traditional American-style BBQ pork ribs and pork marinated in mojo — a simple, Latin-influenced sauce that varies in spiciness and typically includes citrus, garlic and cumin.

To honor these two favorite recipes from her past, chef Bernstein created a new, flavor-filled recipe that infuses classic country-style pork ribs with a zesty, savory mojo sauce.

“I knew there couldn’t be anything more perfect than marinating pork ribs in mojo — not just because the ingredients remind me of my heritage, but because ribs are so easy to make and so great to pair with different flavors,” said chef Bernstein. “After marinating them in the mojo sauce and grilling them for about 15 minutes, you’ll have incredibly tasty, tender and juicy ribs the whole family will love — and probably ask for again and again.”

For more modern interpretations of classic comfort food — as well as generations-old standbys from chef Bernstein and leading food bloggers, visit PorkBeinspired.com/CookingForComfort to download the National Pork Board’s “Cooking For Comfort” free e-cookbook.
