“I know there are many passiote rib connoisseurs who are horrified by people who boil their ribs before broiling or grilling them, but it's a quick and easy way to make them super tender and I can't tell the difference... These are SO easy and good, you'll wonder why you ever paid so much for ribs at a restaraunt. I often use country-style ribs instead of baby back.”
