I went to a surprise party tonight. I decided at the last minute to make ribs and they went over really well with everyone! These were very tender and had lots of flavour. The best part? They are incredibly easy to make and are the quickest ribs I have ever made. You can also use regular sized ribs - these were good for an appetizer at the party. Enjoy!
- 3 lbs pork riblets, racks (pork ribs cut in half)
- 4 garlic cloves, peeled, whole
- 1 tablespoon peppercorn
- 1 tablespoon sea salt
- 3 bay leaves
- favourite dry seasoning (I used Nif's Basic Dry BBQ Rub)
- freshly ground salt and pepper
- In a large pot, bring enough water to cover the ribs to a gentle boil. Add salt, pepper, whole garlic cloves and bay leaves to the water. Meanwhile remove the silver skin from the back of the racks and cut rib racks in half. Add ribs to water. Boil for 30 minutes and strain.
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Cut rib racks into individual ribs and place in a baking pan lined with tin foil, for easier clean up. Sprinkle ribs with seasoning and toss. ***If you are using a salty seasoning, be careful not to use too much and don't use salt at the end. Cover with foil. Bake for 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, place a wire rack on a cookie sheet. I lined the sheet with tin foil as well. Place ribs on the rack.
- Broil ribs until they are medium brown. In my oven, they are done after 4 minutes under a high broil setting. If you have time, you can turn them over and broil the other side. Sprinkle with freshly ground sea salt and pepper to taste. Do not add the salt if your seasoning is salty.
- Make sure you taste them! I added more of my dry rub seasoning at this point because they needed a bit more flavour.
I found boneless country ribs that looked nice and this was a great recipe for them. Wasnt sure how much water to add to the pot so I put the ribs in and covered them with water. Cooked for 45 minutes since I had about 4 pounds of ribs. Had a dry rub on hand so used that and baked them without adding any additional salt. When finished baking they were fork tender and had a smokey good flavor. Liked not having bbq sauce on them but DH preferred it. Will make these again! Made and reviewed for KK's Chef's Pick Tag game.
