• Fast and yummy baby back ribs!
  • Cook's Tip: The membrane found underneath the rack is not only tough, but it also holds in excess fat. Removing the membrane helps to render out the fat during cooking.
  • To ensure even doneness, turn each rib over halfway through cooking using Chef's Tongs so that the undercooked sides face outward.

Ingredients

  • 1 rack (2 1/2-3 lb) pork loin back ribs (baby back ribs)

  • 1/4 cup water

Preparation

  1. For ribs, remove membrane from rack of ribs using Boning Knife. To remove the membrane, lay the rack meaty side down. Using the tip of the Boning Knife, gently cut under the membrane on one corner. Using a paper towel, grasp the corner of the membrane and gently pull it away from the bones. Trim any excess fat along the underside of the rack.
  2. Season both sides of ribs with salt and black pepper.
  3. Cut between each bone to separate rack into individual ribs.
  4. Arrange ribs, cut side down, in two layers in Deep Covered Baker. Add water.

  6. Meanwhile, for sauce, combine ketchup, brown sugar, rub and vinegar in (1.5-qt.) Saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally; remove from heat.
  7. Add 1 cup of the sauce to the Stainless (4-qt) Mixing Bowl.
  8. Transfer ribs to Stainless (4-qt.) Mixing Bowl with the sauce and toss to coat.
