Happy Father's Day

All of us at Mustard Girl headquarters want to wish all of those very special dads out there a very Happy Father’s Day this Sunday!  What a great weekend to let all of those dads, uncles, grandfathers, and step-in dad’s know how much we care and honor them for what they bring to our lives. Although my father died when I was a young girl, I carry him with me in my heart every day.  I am so grateful and blessed to have had such a wonderful dad, amazing uncles, grandpas and step-in dads along the way. All of them have given me so much strength and happiness and helped me become the person I am today. Here's a picture of my father being thrown into the pool on his wedding day, and then reuniting with my mom afterwards. That day marked the beginning of their fun, loving marriage and the beautiful journey they had together. My dad was  one-in-a-million to all who knew him and felt his guiding light of love. He always showed us the way and continues to shine bright to this day.



One of my favorite Father’s Day Recipes is Mustard Girl Marinated Pork Ribs!  Here is a recipe we hope you enjoy!  Big love to everyone on Father’s Day!


Mustard Marinated Girl Pork Ribs


Honey-Mustard Glaze
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
1/3 cup clover honey
¼ c Mustard Girl American Dijon Mustard
Salt and freshly ground black pepper


2 racks St. Louis Style/Country Style pork ribs (12 ribs each)
4 tablespoons canola oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 cup soy sauce
4 cups water
2 to 3-inch piece ginger, skin-on and sliced



Honey-Mustard Glaze
Combine the vinegar and brown sugar in a small saucepan over high heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is completely dissolved and mixture reduces slightly, about 5

Remove from the heat and whisk in the honey and Mustard Girl Mustard.  Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Let cool to room temperature.

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F.

Brush the pork racks on both sides with canola oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste.

In a saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the soy sauce, 4 cups of water and the ginger, and bring to a boil. Pour the mixture into the bottom of a roasting pan, fitted with a rack, and arrange the ribs on the rack. Wrap the pan with foil and roast until the ribs are tender, about 1 1/2 hours.

Remove the ribs from the oven and transfer to baking sheets lined with foil or parchment paper. Turn on the broiler and let heat for 3 to 5 minutes. Brush the ribs heavily on the top side with some of the glaze, put under the broiler and broil until golden brown and a crust has formed. Remove from the oven to a cutting board and brush with more of the glaze. Let rest 10 minutes before slicing. Arrange the ribs on a serving platter and serve.
