“This recipe is for my neighbour. She used to spend so much time making the perfect ribs. Not too dry, not burning on the BBQ, cooked just right. I mentioned my rib recipe to her, she tried it and has never gone back! The nutritional value listed here is not right for this recipe because the cooking method removes so much fat. I suggested the BBQ sauce that I like, but I find sauces vary so much, I thought that it was best to pick your favourite. I also included the longest option for the cooking time. Here you go Judy - Enjoy!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place ribs in a large stock pot. Fill pot with cold water until at least 2 inches above ribs. Add bay leaves, peppercorns and sea salt; bring to a boil. Once boiling, skim scum off the top of the water. Simmer ribs, while skimming occasionally, for 1 to 2 hours.
  2. Set oven to 250°F.
  3. Remove ribs from water and place in large baking dish. Pour your favourite BBQ sauce over ribs and cover tightlly with foil. Cook for about 4 hours, turning the ribs over every hour or so.
  4. Remove foil and let cool for 10 minutes, until you can handle them. Cut into 2 to 4 ribs per section and place on a platter. Enjoy your tender, fall off the bone ribs!
