Lindita’s Baby Back Ribs
This recipe brings back memories of my Brother Johnny who just recently joined my parents in heaven ~ He visited us back when our sons were just babies. I remember making some baby back ribs to impress him. I sure did, he loved every bite and asked me if I would make them again for him. It’s kind of funny after all these years…this is what sparked my memory of him. So many recipes come to life of family members like Mi Abuelita Jacoba, Mi Mamasita Christina, and Mi Tia’s. They shared their love through food….
Mamasita made me promise to share all of our recipes to those that want to learn our family traditions. Keep our culture alive. Never forget who we are and where we came from.

- 6 lbs. baby back ribs
- 1/4 cup distilled white vinegar
- 1 28 oz bottle of barbecue sauce
- 1 Package of Linditas’ Hot Instant Salsa Mix (I prefer)
This recipe can’t get any easier. The secret is in the preparation of the ribs and the sauce. For 6 lbs. of ribs, for 2 slabs, you’ll need 6 liters of water (24 cups) 1/4 cup white vinegar. Add to water. Bring to a quick boil, simmer at lowest heat for 2-3 hours. Mix 1 lb. 12 oz of your favorite barbecue sauce, (Sweet Baby Rays) is my favorite, with 1 packet of Linditas’ Hot Instant Salsa Mix. Mix and let ingredients blend together. For that sweet heat flavor you can relate to. Remove ribs from vinegar and water. Place on griddle over barbecue grill with a slight coating of sauce. As the cooking proceeds at high temperature, continue to add sauce as it caramelizes over the ribs for about 10 minutes. Cover with foil to keep moist. Add the cooked Gemstone Baby potatoes to the platter for the the final drum roll. Your guests will be screaming for more.
