With the weather is warming up, my family and I broke out our grill this week, since we absolutely love cooking outside. Did you know, despite popular believes, you don’t need a smoker to make amazing barbeque ribs! Just take a few tips from me and don’t put the ribs on direct heat. Get the fire going on one side and place the ribs on the other. Keep the temperature low and cook them slowly. Use patience!
For this week’s Money Saving Meal, you can either simply just add barbeque sauce to your ribs to spice them up or try the recipe below. After each ingredient, I listed where you can find it on sale!
5 lbs ribs (Marsh, Kroger, Meijer)
24 ounces beer (Marsh, Kroger, Meijer)
spicy barbeque sauce or your favorite barbeque sauce
Trim any excess fat from ribs. Place ribs in a large cooking pot on the stove. Add beer to cover ribs, turn heat on high, and bring to a boiling. Reduce heat to low and simmer covered for about 2 hours or until fork-tender.
Set grill to medium heat. Place ribs on grill. Use 1/2 the barbeque sauce for basting. Brush on upon setting on the grill. Grill, covered, turning often, and brushing with remaining basting sauce, for 15 minutes or until slightly crispy on the outside.
Heat reserved barbeque sauce for dipping. Serve with ribs.
If you simply, use barbeque sauce, you can skip the boiling and simply place the ribs on the grill and cook slowly over low heat until cooked through!
