We had babyback ribs last night, and my husband kept singing that jingle from the "Chili's" commercial. Do remember it? Is it stuck in your head now, too? It's stuck in mine!
There are so many ways to make babyback ribs, and we've probably tried a few dozen of them. This is our favorite. It involves boiling them first and then cooking them in the oven, although you could put them on the grill instead (they are falling apart tender, you might want to use foil or a grill pan). It was threatening rain around here last night, so the oven was best for us. I used to think that boiling the ribs before cooking them would make them tough or tasteless, but neither is true. These cook up tender and delicious every time. And the sauce? It's really, really thick and sticks to the ribs making them absolutely gooey, you must try it. You can find the entire recipe here. It calls for spareribs, which I've made with great success, but we subbed babybacks last night because they were on sale.
