When I visited home this summer my mom pulled out her family’s recipe for ribs. These are gonna be perfect for you your next special event- especially now that it is footballs season! You can never go wrong with a batch of tender, fall-off-the-bone, bursting with tangy flavor ribs for a bunch of hangry fellows watching a sport.
For the prep work- you want to remove the membrane of the ribs use a knife and a paper towel to grip it. You can, at this point cut them into serving pieces (4-5 ribs) or leave them whole and cut after you boil. Stick them in a pot full of seasonings and boil. It is important that there are plenty of seasonings and they are covered in liquid.
(pictured below we had dumped some liquid out to move the pot :)
Step three. Cover the ribs with your rub. Cover with foil. Bake them for at least 2 hours. You can go longer if desired…. longer = more flavor!
Now! they are baked and full of flavor they will go on the grill for a quick charring. this fast searing on the high heat will help seal the flavor and create a little salty crust. There is nothing like the taste of fresh grilled anything. Veggies or meat- it always tastes better grilled. You can make the ribs at home and and after they have baked take them to a tail gate party and grill them there. Slather with your favorite BBQ sauce and serve with an ice cold coke. Seriously guys, they’ll be the hit of the party.
