There are many schools of thought on ribs. This parboil technique comes from a restaurant made famous on the
TV Show MASH. Adam's Rib claims that this is the reason for the tender, fall off the bone ribs that they serve.
(Our personal recipe for sauce can be found below.) Cut racks of ribs in 1/2 before preparing.
1 rack baby back ribs. (remove membrane on back) 2 T salt
1/2 C paprika 2 tsp dry mustard
1/4 C brown sugar 1 tsp ground cumin
3 T black pepper 1 tsp garlic powder
Mix above rub and marinade ribs for several hours, overnight if possible.
Bring a pan of water to a boil. Place ribs in pan simmer about 45 mins. to 1 hour or until tender.
Remove the ribs, pat dry.
Meanwhile prepare sauce
1 T olive oil 1 tsp red chili powder
1 tsp garlic powder 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 small onion, chopped 3/4 C ketchup
1/2 tsp salt 2 T honey or maple syrup
1/2 T brown sugar 1 T cider vinegar
1/2 tsp black pepper 1 T Worcestershire Sauce
1 bottle Uncle Scott's Root Beer
In a sauce pan sautee garlic powder and onion until tender in olive oil. Reduce heat. Add all other ingredients for sauce. Mix well, heat to a slow simmer about 15 mins. Stir. The sauce will thicken. Set 1/2 aside for serving with ribs and 1/2 for brushing on ribs while cooking. OR MAKE A DOUBLE BATCH.
Place on grill medium heat. Baste with the sauce and grill until ribs are glazed over turn over baste.
