Clean Off the Bone BBQ Ribs
I tried many different ways to cook BBQ ribs so the meat will come off the bone leaving it clean. The secret of this recipe to precook your ribs before you put them on the grill or under the broiler. I tried many different ways: boiled ribs in salty water where ribs came out very tender but almost all meet flavor was washed out, then I tried to grill them on very low temperature- it was hard to keep grill on low because wind was blowing out the flame. Baking ribs before grilling is actually the best method I found which makes ribs not just tender but also gives it a great smoky out of the grill flavor.
This is what you will need:
- One 2-2 ½ pounds baby back ribs rack
- 1 tablespoon coursed salt; I am using Himalayan pink salt
- 1 teaspoon dry garlic
- 1 tablespoon paprika
- Pepper any kind to taste
- Smoky Sweet BBQ Sauce from Viktoria Chefina or any your favorite BBQ sauce
Preheat oven to 350F. Wash and dry the ribs. Clean all unnecessary fat and film from the back side of the ribs, and make an individual cut half way through each rib in order to separate them from each other; I am doing this more for the esthetic look.
Combine together salt, dry garlic, paprika and pepper and rub it into both sides of the ribs.
Place ribs into baking sheet covered with aluminum foil
then cover it with another sheet of foil, transfer the sheet into the oven and cook covered for 2 hours.
Meanwhile prepare BBQ sauce, check my recipe here…
Ribs are done when you see them coming off the bone.
Cover baked ribs with BBQ sauce and grill them for 2-3 minutes on each site on the grill or broil them on high for 2 minutes on each side.
Apply more BBQ sauce on the ribs before serving.
