Excellent ribs! The rub is almost identical to one I frequently use but I would not have thought of steaming/braising the ribs in beer. Very tender but not at all mushy. My favorite 'Bone Sucking Sauce' to finish them and we were happy campers. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
I tried this for the first time tonight following the recipe as stated except for the last step of slathering BBQ sauce on the ribs on the grill - the simple thought of leaving a messy grill along with the prospect of burnt ribs deterred me. I found it better for me to dip my ribs in the sauce after they were cooked, plus I got the benefit of the true flavor, which I must say was absolutely wonderful, not to mention the ribs were falling off the bone! This will be added to my favorites to be made over and over again! Thanks!
This looks to be a great recipe -- the tastes all seem wonderful together. However, we found the recipe a bit confusing... how long do you leave the ribs with rub, and when exactly do you put the beer etc in? Do you do that on night one, or right before you bake them?
I made this dish by request for my son's birthday dinner. Delicious rib rub! Much more economical than buying premade rub blends. Slowly baking & steaming with beer and cider is something I had never thought to do, I had always used plain ol' water. This is incredibly good and uber tender! You have made the birthday boy and the rest of the family very happy. ;^) Thanks for sharing your recipe Sarasota!
