Baby Back Ribs



For Labor Day we made baby back ribs. This was our first attempt at making whole racks of ribs. It was actually much easier than I thought it would be and they turned out very tender. I handled the first half of the recipe in the kitchen, then Craig took over outside on the grill. (He had the tough part since it started pouring rain as soon as we were ready to grill).

Sipala's Beginner BBQ Ribs

2 Racks Baby Back Pork Ribs
24oz Beer (2 Bottles)
1 Small Onion, Sliced

18oz Prepared BBQ Sauce

- Cut each rack of ribs in half.
- Place ribs in pot, then add beer, onion, and cold water to cover.
- Over high heat, heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low - cover - simmer 1 hour or until almost tender. Drain, cover and chill until ready to grill.
- While the grill heats, coat ribs with BBQ sauce.
- Place ribs on grill over medium coals. Grill 20 minutes or until tender, brushing with sauce often and turning occasionally.

Wow, another exciting use for beer! (in the '60's we used it to style our hair).
The ribs look really good..my mouth is watering. ( I never heard of using beer..did it lend flavor?)

Craig and I thought we saw someone on the Food Network using beer, so we just tried it. I think it did lend some flavor.

Craig did a super job grilling and basting them with the sauce (in the rain) - made for a great photo.
