Arlen Benny Cenac’s Summer Baby Back Ribs

Arlen Benny Cenac’s Summer Baby Back Ribs

The Food Network posted a great recipe for delicious Barbecue Baby Back Ribs. It is the perfect time to clean off the grill, and hot dogs and burgers are not the only thing that it can be used for. Ribs go perfectly with any side and they are always a party pleaser.  Some sides to consider are: potato salad, maple barbeque beans, fruit salad, fresh guacamole and cilantro salsa, and even a charcuterie board.

INGREDIENTS

2 racks of baby back ribs

1 cup of barbecue sauce, your choice

1 cup of low-sodium chicken broth

¼ cup of brown sugar

2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar

2 tablespoons of chili powder

½ teaspoon of garlic powder

½ teaspoon of cayenne pepper

½ teaspoon of onion powder

1 teaspoon of dried oregano

Kosher salt

Ground black pepper, fresh if possible

UTENSILS/TOOLS

A mixing bowl

A container to store the marinating ribs

A roasting pan

Foil

A grill

A large bowl to toss the ribs in

A saucepan

DIRECTIONS

The first step to making the best baby back ribs you can is making the dry rub that will be used to marinate the ribs. The chili powder, brown sugar, and onion powder should be mixed in the mixing bowl.  Add the oregano, cayenne, and 1 tablespoon of kosher salt. Top the mixture off with 1 teaspoon of black pepper. Make sure the mixture is mixed together fully. Take the large container that will be used to marinate the ribs and place the ribs inside. Take the dry rub mixture and rub both sides of the ribs. Refrigerate them; the longer they marinate the better. However, an hour will work just fine too.

The oven should be preheated to 250 degrees fahrenheit. Mix the chicken broth and apple cider vinegar in the roasting pan. Remove the baby back ribs from the refrigerator and place them in the pan. Take the foil and cover the roasting pan. The ribs need to be baked for 2 hours in the oven. Once the 2 hours are up, remove the pan from the oven and place the ribs on a platter. Take the liquid that is in the roasting pan and place it in a saucepan. Bring this to a boil and then lower the heat. It needs to be simmering. Continue to cook until half of the mixture has been reduced. Take the cup of barbecue sauce and add it to the saucepan. Turn off the heat.

The outdoor grill needs to be preheated to medium/high. Cook the ribs for around 5 minutes on each side. The point is to make sure the ribs are browned; they need to be slightly charred. Remove the ribs from the grill, cutting them between the bones. Once the ribs are cut, place them in the large bowl. Pour the sauce over the ribs and toss them in the bowl. Once they are evenly coated, serve the ribs. They are best when hot!

Set them out in a large pan with tongs for easy access. Arrange appetizers around the table and you will be the BBQ King/Queen of the neighborhood!
