Some typical ingredients for a pork rib marinade include soy sauce, light brown sugar, molasses and salt, notes The Food Network. These ingredients are combined and placed in a bag with the ribs so that all are coated thoroughly. The ribs are then marinated in the refrigerator for several hours until ready to cook.
Pork ribs are typically marinated before being used in recipes, such as barbecue pork ribs. Marinating the pork ribs for several hours will give the meat tine to soak in the seasonings and increase flavor. For a more spicy marinade, ingredients such as garlic powder, paprika, ground mustard or chili powder can be added to taste. Marinated pork ribs go well with grilled corn and potato salad.
There are other varieties of marinades that can be used with pork ribs. For example, Emeril Lagasse offers an Asian-style marinade recipes. This marinade includes soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, sesame oil, salt, pure cane syrup, yellow onion, chopped garlic, freshly ground black pepper, chili garlic sauce and peeled and grated fresh ginger. These ingredients are combined and added to a pan with the pork ribs. The ribs are covered and refrigerated for several hours, turning every hour to ensure that the ribs are completely covered with the marinade.
