    Nif's Note:

    This recipe is for my neighbour. She used to spend so much time making the perfect ribs. Not too dry, not burning on the BBQ, cooked just right. I mentioned my rib recipe to her, she tried it and has never gone back! The nutritional value listed here is not right for this recipe because the cooking method removes so much fat. I suggested the BBQ sauce that I like, but I find sauces vary so much, I thought that it was best to pick your favourite. I also included the longest option for the cooking time. Here you go Judy - Enjoy!

    1. 1
      Place ribs in a large stock pot. Fill pot with cold water until at least 2 inches above ribs. Add bay leaves, peppercorns and sea salt; bring to a boil. Once boiling, skim scum off the top of the water. Simmer ribs, while skimming occasionally, for 1 to 2 hours.
    2. 2
      Set oven to 250°F.
    3. 3
      Remove ribs from water and place in large baking dish. Pour your favourite BBQ sauce over ribs and cover tightlly with foil. Cook for about 4 hours, turning the ribs over every hour or so.
    4. 4
      Remove foil and let cool for 10 minutes, until you can handle them. Cut into 2 to 4 ribs per section and place on a platter. Enjoy your tender, fall off the bone ribs!

      I made these ribs a few weeks ago for Kitten's Recipe Tag game and they were fall off the bone tender and very good. The only ribs I could find were boneless country ribs and I used about 4 pounds. Simmered on the stove for one hour and then put in the oven for 3 hours. DH wanted honey barbecue sauce and I used the whole bottle to top the ribs before putting them in the oven. Had to use a spatula to get the ribs out of the pan because they were so tender. Will make these again with the baby back ribs.

      These were great. However I made some changes. I used KittenKal's "The Best Creole/Cajun Seasoning Mix" as a rub and for the BBQ sauce I used "Jamaican BBQ Sauce". I wrap the ribs with the rub in some foil and let it bake in oven for 2 hours. I than basted the ribs with the Jamaican BBQ Sauce for another hour. WOW excellent! Nice spicy fall of the bone ribs. Made by member of "Cooks With Dirty Faces" for ZWT5

      I made these exactly following the recipe. I simmered them for about 1 1/2 hours. I think I waited to long to skim off the fat and then it just kinda disolved back into the water and stuck to the sides of the pot. My husband loved this dish and I thought it was pretty good too. But to be honest, I propably won't make it again because I don't think the extra time and steps make a big enough difference to my other recipe.Made for zwt5.
