What's this?

You'll be coming back to these beef ribs time and time again. These beef back ribs are marinated in a rich red wine, garlic and herb mixture, seasoned with Traeger Prime Rib Rub and grilled to perfection.


  • 4 Rack (2 lb each) center-cut beef back ribs

  • 1 Cup red wine

  • 1 Cup olive oil

  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon salt

  • 1 Teaspoon coarse ground black pepper

  • 3 Clove garlic, minced

  • 1 Small onion, diced

  • 1 bay leaf, coarsely crumbled

  • As Needed Traeger Prime Rib Rub


  • 1

    If your butcher has not already done so, remove the thin papery membrane from the bone-side of the ribs by working the tip of a butter knife underneath the membrane over a middle bone. Use paper towels to get a firm grip, then tear the membrane off.
  • 2

    Put the ribs in a nonreactive pan large enough to hold them (alternatively, use a large resealable plastic bag).
  • 3

    For the Marinade: Combine the wine, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, salt and pepper in a bowl, and whisk to combine. Stir in the garlic, onion and bay leaf.
  • 4

    Pour the marinade over the meat, turning the racks to coat. Cover and refrigerate for several hours and up to overnight.
  • 5

    Turn the racks several times so the meat is evenly marinated. Remove the ribs from the marinade and remove any solids.
  • 6

    Season both sides of ribs with Traeger Prime Rib Rub.
  • 7

    When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 250℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
