Amen. Let's Eat!
Wednesday, February 23, 2011 Rib-tastic!

I made ribs on Sunday night and they were a huge hit. Well, with the exception of my 6 year old who poked at them, stroked her own ribs, asked questions about the anatomy of a pig and declared she wasn't hungry.

I used the spice rub from Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything cookbook and it was perfect.

Here's the rub:

2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon chili powder

Combine all ingredients and rub all over the ribs. Cook ribs at 300 for 2 hours, draining fat every 30 minutes or so (I didn't need to do this. Very little fat on the ribs I bought.) The last ten minutes, cook at 500.

They were perfect fall off the bone ribs with just a little bit of bite. But not too much bite so the wee ones still enjoyed it.

This will definitely be my go to rib recipe from now on. Perfect-o!
