Pork Ribs

There are so many fabulous rib recipes right here on Delishably, and everyone has their own way of making pork ribs. I remember my dad used to take great pride in his ribs and always insisted that they must first be boiled. For many years, I would boil them... until one day I was a little short on time and decided to skip the boiling process. I found that they tasted great, the meat fell off the bones just as if I'd boiled them, and that is when I stopped using Dad's technique.

BBQ Ribs All Year Round

My family loves ribs, and we eat them all year round. In the colder winter months, it is hard to stand outside by the BBQ, so I cook my ribs in the oven. We find that they taste just the same as if they were cooked outside.

Questions & Answers

Question: What is a broiler?

Answer: Think of your broiler as an upside-down grill. ... To use it, you'll need to move an oven rack to the highest possible position in the oven, which is typically 3-4 inches from the broiler. In other ovens, the heating element is on the bottom of the oven and the broiler is a separate compartment underneath the actual oven.
