I always boil or bake my ribs before grilling. I like the oven method for "fix and forget" ease but hate heating up my house w/the oven in the summer for a couple of hours. So, the boiling method works well to help render the fat and tenderize the meat when I don't want to bake. I've also used the slow cooker (all day on low) to get ribs ready for the grill it works AWESOME! I always put rib rub on my ribs (or in the water) as well as onion and garlic to add flavor to the ribs. If I have one handy and I'm boiling or using the slow cooker...I use a beef in place of some of the water. Very good!
I agree with the previous reviewer...NEVER boil pork or beef unless you like shoe leather. My fail-safe method for cooking baby back ribs is on the grill. To start, I season my ribs generously with a grill seasoning and wrap them in heavy-duty foil. Place the ribs meat side UP and grill for about 20-25 minutes on medium heat. I turn them over and grill for about 8-10 minutes, meat side DOWN. Then I remove the foil, lavish them with my favorite BBQ sauce, watching them closely because the sugar in the BBQ sauce will scorch easily. For the most part the ribs cook themselves and the meat is so moist and tender it will practically fall off the bone!
My Husband loved this barbecue! It was my first time to make baby back ribs. I put my ribs in the oven with water covering the ribs for 11/2hrs on 315 degrees before grilling. I will do this again only try it at 275 degrees for a longer time to see if they come out more tender.
The problem with this recipe is that is has you boiling the meat before you put it on the grill. Boiled pork or beef usually is tough, and tastes horrible. I bake mine in the oven for about 20 minutes at 400 degrees before I put them on the grill. That way, they dont come out with that strange taste, and they melt in your mouth!
Not good at all! I made a pasta side and salad to go with it and ended up eating the sides over the meat. The meat wasn't tender and was tough to get off the bone. Wast of money and time!
The extra preparation that use the onion, garlic and pepper makes the ribs taste a hundred percent better. It is just flavorful. Mmmmm
This recipe was only okay... I served it with corn on the cob and the layered summer salad. I found myself eating the side dishes more than the main entree.
I have found if you put them in the oven on low for a few hours, the seasoning bakes in, and will be ready for the grill when you are !
I placed the ribs in a crock pot in the morning. When it came time to place them on the BBQ, they meat was very moist. The meat just fell off the bone and was amazing!
I gave it a superb, because this is how I fix my ribs normally when I grill. But I also add various herbs to season. Boiling is best, it gets the toughness out and cuts the grilling time down.
