The night before…
Cut ribs into slabs and boil in water (can add onions for flavour). Boil for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Drain water completely from ribs (this gets rid of the fat).
Place ribs in a container. Cover with honey-garlic sauce. Refrigerate overnight.
The next day when you get home…
Season the zucchini with fresh herbs or Mrs. Dash Italian dressing and brush each strip with olive oil.
Place zucchini in a vegetable cage and place on grill. Watch carefully to see that it doesn’t burn. Munch on the grilled zucchini while the rest of the meal is cooking!
Combine rice and water in a microwave-safe pot or casserole. Cover and microwave rice at high 10 minutes, then medium 10 minutes.
Spray marinated ribs with cooking spray and place on BBQ grill. Sear each side. Turn often, brushing remaining marinade on ribs.
