Royce asked me tonight if all our meals are going to be on the internet and I said "No, of course not honey" but then got to thinking about how often I run up the stairs to share a new recipe or idea and might be changing my answer to "Hum, Maybe?"
I have made many different kinds of ribs over the years and like several ways of cooking them. My favorite by far is usually just grilled on the BBQ with my favorite rub on them. But tonight I found a new way that was equally easy and more than equally yummy. And a whole lot more messy, but yummy messy if you get my drift. So without further ado and because my left hand is sore from all my postings today, here is my new favorite rib recipe.
Here's what you need:
1 slab pork baby back ribs - 2 - 2-1/2 pounds
1 bottle beer, not for drinkin' (otherwise grab two) whatever you have on hand
1 beer bottle full of water (after the beer is used of course)
salt, pepper, garlic powder
canola oil for searing
In a large dutch oven heat 2 - 3 Tbl. canola oil. Pat the ribs dry and liberally salt, pepper, and garlic both sides. Cut into pieces with 3 ribs each.
Sear on both sides until a nice brown forms. If the meat sticks it's not ready to turn over. It will lift off the pan easily when ready to turn.
Place ribs on baking sheet and baste with sauce. Bake for 10 minutes, then turn over and baste the other side repeating for 1 hour. Ribs should fall off the bone when done!
Serves - 4
