Barbecued Ribs

This cooking method comes from my sister, Patty. I'm sure many people will say that "low and slow" on the grill is the best way to cook ribs, but these ribs are to die for. They're SO tender it's like they just melt in your mouth. I'm thinking it's time to fire up the grill! Who's with me???

pork ribs
salt and pepper
any favorite barbecue sauce

Trim excess fat from ribs, then salt and pepper them.
Fill a large pot with approximately four inches of water. Stand the ribs (meatier side down) on end in pot. Cover. Bring to a boil. Cook over medium heat for about 40 minutes (until fork tender). Add more water as necessary. Remove from pot. Place ribs on grill and baste with barbecue sauce until the sauce caramelizes on the ribs.

You can also do these in the oven instead of on the grill. Follow the recipe above, but after removing them from the pot, place them in a baking dish and baste with barbecue sauce. Bake in a 325 oven for another 45 minutes.
