90-Minute Pork Side Ribs

"These might not have the same delicate flavor of slow-cooked ribs but they are delicious and will be on your table in about 90 minutes or less, and to save even more time boil the ribs a day or evening in advance cover and refrigerate until ready to grill, which will make this a perfect weekday meal, use as many ribs as you wish the amounts are only a guideline. These ribs may also be cooked in the oven, see note on bottom. Prep time includes boiling the ribs and cooling. This recipe is for pork side ribs only, do not use baby back ribs."

  • Place the ribs in a large pot and cover with water (you may slice the slab in half if desired or leave in one piece).

  • Cover ribs loosely with foil and allow to cool for about 30 minutes or more.
  • At this point you may refrigerate for up to 24 hours or until ready to cook (if desired you may brush ribs with BBQ sauce on both sides before refrigerating to increase the flavor).

  • Place the boiled ribs on a broiler rack on a baking sheet that has been lined with foil for easy clean-up.
  • Brush both sides of the ribs with barbecue sauce.

  1. I have made these many times with Country Style Ribs... They are really tasty. I have done both on the grill and in the oven... I REALLY like them on the grill, but in the oven are good too!
