Most Helpful

The local grocery has a sale on beef ribs. I can't resist food on sale. One short search later and dinner was almost ready, I just had a bit of marinading and nuking to do. I love the fact that this is a microwave recipe, it's blistering hot outside, someone seems to have sucked all the oxygen out of the air, and the last thing I want to do is have a duel between my oven and air-conditioner. I marinaded the ribs in a ziplock bag with all the air sucked out of it so there was no need for turning. Then I only really needed a little over an hour in the microwave on 50%, I have a high wattage oven. Tender and delicious ribs, and I love the flavor combination of the lemon juice and the cumin. I am not a fan of steak sauce, so I used a mild matbucha. We had these with some pan-roasted corn on the cob and an Israeli salad on the side. Washed it down with some limonana (minty lemonade). Thanks for the sublime evening!
