  • 1 package Smithfield Extra Tender Pork St Louis Style Ribs

Cuban Mojo Marinade

  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup cilantro chopped
  • 1/3 cup mint leaves chopped
  • 2 TBSP minced garlic
  • 1 TBSP dried chopped oregano
  • 1 TBSP ground cumin

Chimichurri Drizzle

  • 1 cup cilantro leaves
  • 1 cup parsley leaves
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 3 TBSP white wine vinegar
  • 3 TBSP lime juice
  • red pepper flakes for spice optional


  1. Combine all Cuban Mojo Marinade ingredients together, open your Smithfield Fresh Pork package and smother the ribs in the marinade overnight in the fridge.

  2. Remove from fridge and place on a grill over medium heat.  Grill for 1.5-2 hours or until the ribs are cooked until completely cooked.  Flipping the ribs every once in a while (about every 30 minutes) will help them cook evenly.

  3. While the ribs are cooking, combine all chimichurri ingredients together in a food processor and pulse until desired consistency.  Once the ribs are off the grill, drizzle the chimichurri sauce over the ribs and enjoy!
