A rib recipe provided by a friend. He swears by the method.
2-racks/slabs pork back ribs. Try not to make them over meaty as they tend not to cook through as well as the less fat ones.
2-teaspoons garlic powder(garlic salt)
8-ounces barbeque sauce(or any rib sauce to your liking. My fave is honey garlic)
Turn oven on to broil/grill 500°(really hot) and put ribs under for 5 mins on each side to sear and seal in the juices. Cut the racks in half and sprinkle the salt, pepper, and garlic over them. Grill again for another 5 mins on each side.
Reduce the heat down to 250°(really low) and wrap the ribs up in some heavy duty foil. I use flimsy foil but double up the sheets when wrapping. Drop ribs back in the pan and slide back in the oven for 4 hours. Go and amuse yourself and don’t forget they are in there. Also important not to open the door.
When the time is up you can smother the ribs in your choice of cooking sauce and then whack them on the BBQ for 8-10 mins. Use any combination of spices and that to your liking but make sure you follow the cooking guidelines. If you don’t want to use the barbie then just turn the heat back up to 500° and place them back in the oven for 8-10 mins but this time uncovered.
This is a fall off the bone recipe and I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
I’ve seen some good burgers on TV shows (Man V Food, Eat Street and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives) and thought i’d give one a go.
So here is my version of a double burger with cheese, bacon, salad, sauce between two toasted cheese sandwiches served with onion strings. I was quite proud of my bacon quilt 😀
