This go-to recipe for classic barbecued ribs embraces what we refer to as our "oven-cheat" method — a technique that'll get you ultra-tender meat without spending 12 hours manning a smoker. Choose your cut — baby backs or spareribs — and follow three simple steps: 1. Season. 2. Bake. 3. Grill.
If you can’t babysit the ribs on the grill, then cook them in the oven and finish them on the grill to add a little smoky perfume. Even though baby back or county-style ribs look meatier, we prefer spareribs for succulent pork that is finger-lickin’, lip-smackin' good.
Unlike the housemade, signature Cherry Coke Barbecue Sauce at the popular Southern restaurant chain CinéBistro, this recipe is based off a bottled barbecue sauce, which makes it very easy to make at home. Always use a high-quality bottled sauce.
These ribs were so good that after the first time I made them, I made them again only one day later. For barbecue sauce inspiration, my favorites are my Kansas City-style sauce with a smoked tomato base, and my Carolina Style sauce with a vinegar and mustard base from The Kitchen Pantry Cookbook.
Who knew Jägermeister could be for more than just shots? The connoisseurs over at the German brand say that it's even great with your ribs, and they show us how with this recipe.
