salt and pepper
3 pounds baby back pork ribs
1 cup barbecue sauce
1) Baby back ribs do not have as much fat as short or spare ribs, but regardless of which kind you choose, trim off any fat you do not want. If your ribs are in a slab form, cut them into individual pieces—one rib bone per piece.
2) Place ribs in a large pot and cover with water. Add your preferred amount of the spices listed above to the water and stir to combine. Bring the broth to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 45 minutes or until ribs are very tender.
3) Preheat broiler.
4) Place ribs on a broiling pan and brush with barbecue sauce. Broil ribs about 7 to 9 inches from heat source for 15 minutes. Every 5 minutes, turn ribs over and brush with more sauce. The sauce should caramelize onto the meat, making delicious, finger-licking ribs!
Do not throw out the rib broth! Let it cool, then pour into individual freezer containers. Use in soups and other recipes that call for any kind of stock or broth. You'll save money and cut back on all the unnecessary salt and preservatives!
