Saucy Beef Ribs

  • serves 8

Beef ribs are a personal favourite, but make sure you have lots of grill space – they are BIG! The BBQ rub recipe is a great all-purpose rub mix that also works for pork ribs, steaks or chicken, too.Photo by Michael Mahovlich.

Directions for: Saucy Beef Ribs

2 Tbsp ground coriander

2 Tbsp Spanish paprika (mild)

1 Tbsp salt

2 tsp garlic powder

2 tsp ground black pepper

Directions

BBQ Rub Saucy Ribs Assembly

1. For the BBQ rub, combine all the spices and store until ready to use.

2. For a gas grill, preheat it to medium and for charcoal, burn long lasting briquettes until they turn ¾ white. Score the backside of the ribs with a sharp knife to open up the tissue, but not pierce the meat (this allows the spice flavors to cook in). Rub the BBQ rub vigorously over all sides of the ribs, pressing well with your hands to get it to stick.

3. Grill ribs on one side, covered, for 20 minutes. Reduce the grill heat (if gas) to medium low and turn the ribs after another 20 minutes. The convection heat of a covered grill will keep air and heat circulating, while concentrating the smoke and spice flavors. Continue cooking and turning ribs every twenty minutes, for about 2 hours (you may have to re-fuel your charcoal BBQ).

4. While the ribs are cooking, prepare the BBQ sauce. Stir the prepared sauce with the apple cider vinegar and molasses. When the ribs are 20 minutes from finishing, brush the sauce on both sides. Repeat glazing two more times.
