My sister saw this on an Oprah show and everytime she makes them everyone drools! A different kind of rib as they are not saucy and sticky with BBQ sauce. Very yummy nonetheless and slightly different than other ribs by the same name.

I first saw these on the Oprah show when she introduced them. They are so delicious! I have seen many variations of this recipe. I wrap my ribs individually with the rub and peppers. I unwrap after marinating time and cook in open pans. They still turn out fabulous! Next time I will try keeping them covered.
