Have you ever pictured yourself beating Bobby Flay or starring as the host of a popular cooking show? Our “Technique” blog posts feature greater information about not just the “how” of preparing delicious pork recipes, but also the “why” of the techniques used in preparing restaurant-quality dishes to serve your family and friends.
We’ll start with this easy, but impressive, slab of Tangy Grilled Back Ribs.
To get a good, meaty slab of ribs, talk with the butcher at your supermarket meat counter about which slab to select. They may even have tips on how to trim the ribs to make them look professionally prepared.
Wash the slab under cold water to rinse off any bone dust left from the cutting process. Blot the slab dry with good-quality paper towels and rub with olive oil.
Grind fresh pepper and salt on both sides of the ribs and place bone-side down on the grate. Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 1 hour.
Uncover and flip the ribs bone-side up, reduce the heat slightly, and cook another 40 minutes.
