Directions

Step 1: Parboil ribs

Remove membrane (the thin skin on the bone side of the rack) from ribs. Cut rack in half, place in a 5-quart stock pot and cover with water. Add Pickling Spice to pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and parboil ribs for 45 min.

Step 2: Broil ribs

Remove ribs from liquid and set on foil-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle each rack half with oil then rub generously with seasoning of choice. Finish under a broiler or on a medium-high heat grill for about 10 min., with the meat side of the racks facing the heat source.
