Grilled Country Ribs with Summer Savory Mustard Marinade

Marinated ribs on the grill make for a hearty and quick summer supper. They are a perfect showcase for a flavor you might not be familiar with; summer savory, more commonly known as savory, is is a characteristic ingredient in Herbes de Provence and a great seasoning for grilling. 


2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar

1/4 cup olive oil

3 tablespoons fresh summer savory, chopped fine

1 tablespoon water

2 pounds country-style pork ribs (about 6)


  1. Prepare grill
  2. Whisk together mustard, vinegar, oil, summer savory, water, and salt and pepper to taste.
  3. In a baking dish large enough to hold ribs in one layer coat them with marinade and let stand, covered, at room temperature 15 minutes – or in the fridge for up to 24 hours.
  4. Grill ribs on an oiled rack set 5 to 6 inches over glowing coals until just cooked through, about 10 minutes on each side
