Here is the first of two posts using the FREE RIBS we got with our coupons from participating in the Maple Leaf Prime Pork Recipe Contest (<— click there and vote for our recipe!!). I really was unsure how I wanted to do the ribs, so I cut them in half and decided to try two recipes. The first being coffee rubbed ribs, because I love coffee and I wanted to try a dry rub.
First things first, preheat the oven to 375° F and cook the ribs in about one inch of water with the meatier side facing up for an hour. Once this has been done, put some olive oil on the ribs and coat it with the rub.
- 2 Tbsp Paprika
- 2 Tbsp Dark roast coffee
- 1 Tbsp Seasoning (I used a Caribbean Rub)
- 2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
- 1 Tsp Chili Powder
- Salt & Pepper to taste
Once the ribs are thoroughly coated, put them on the barbecue off of direct heat. I placed the ribs in the middle of the barbecue, with the middle burner off and the two side burners on medium-high heat and cooked the ribs for about 15 minutes.
The ribs were very tender and while I enjoyed the dry rub, the real treat came with the Teriyaki Ribs, which were AMAZING (personally, I just think it’s more fun eating ooey gooey ribs that make a mess!).
Check out the Teriyaki ribs in the next post!
