Preparation, Uses, & Tips

Barbecue by the grill method

Rub ribs with a spicy “dry rub,” place in a sealable plastic bag, and refrigerate overnight. Prepare a low-heat barbecue (250°F and 130°C), place beef ribs on greased rack, and close the lid. Grill ribs until they are fork-tender, 2 1/2 to 3 hours. During the last 15 minutes of cooking, remove the lid and baste with barbecue sauce, turning several times.

Barbecue by the grill method

Heat oven to 350°F (180°C), place beef ribs in a shallow baking pan, and bake beef ribs until they are tender, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven, drain, and place on a heated barbecue directly over the heat source. Cook 15 minutes, basting with barbecue sauce and turning frequently.

Barbecue by the braise/broil method

Place beef ribs in heavy pot on the stove, cover with water (add spices if desired), and simmer until tender, about 2 hours. Drain and place ribs on a broiler pan. Broil for 10 to 15 minutes, basting with barbecue sauce and turning often.

Braise

To braise, heat a skillet and brown ribs on both sides over medium-high heat. Add cooking liquid and onions or spices if desired. Cook over low heat until the meat is fork-tender, about 2 hours. Save the stock to use for soup or broth.
