Grilling with Brenda- Melt In Your Mouth Ribs 

Happy Labor Day and welcome to my kitchen !! 

What a perfect occasion to kick back, bond, and eat succulent ribs. As you guys know, I live in Houston and this past week has been awful. Alas, we made it through hurricane Harvey. There is always something good that comes out of every bad situation. This natural disaster allowed neighbors to get to know each other, pushed many of us to be there for one another and help out. We are all recovering and on this day, my loved ones and I decided to celebrate and thank for protecting and blessing Ho(US)ton.

I hosted a dinner and invited all my loved ones and new friends I met over the past week. 

Here is the menu


  • Bren’s Style succulent grilled pork ribs accompanied with homemade bren’s style salsa 
  • Chicken tamales made by a lovely friend 

Ribs recipe 

On rack of fresh pork ribs

Homemade seasoning(salt, garlic powder, Himalayan salt and black pepper)

Real talk: I eyeball so season it to your liking. I added about 3 pinches !! You can always taste and add some more as it is cooking …

Rub seasoning on the meat and let it marinate for at least 3 hours

Chopped sage, thyme and rosemary
Mix herbs with a tsp of olive oil and 1/2 cup of freshly squeezed lime juice

This mixture will be used while the rib is cooking on the grill in order to keep it juicy and savory.

Cooking and browning nicely

Let it smoke for 3 hours on the grill with the hood down .

All done and chopped !!!

Now let’s get to my signature tangy salsa

I roasted one onion and two tomatoes on the grill and blended with 1/2 cup of line juice ,two tbsp of olive oil and salt
And voila !! Enjoy this with fresh crunchy tortilla chips or bread!! I drizzled some of that mixture on my ribs !!!

Me gusta los tamales!! 

There’s nothing like homemade fresh tamales !!
Tamales topped with green chile sauce (homemade of course)

I never made tamales but that’s something I need to learn !! Love em’

We quickly devoured this delicious homemade dish !! 

I hope this was a great read and I hope many of view give this rib recipe a try.

Thanks for reading,
