I come from a long line of meat eaters. We love our meat. Growing up it wasn’t uncommon for us to have at least 2-3 meats on the table for special occasions and if we are grilling, almost always we would have several meats on the barbecue. While I love all of the different kind of meats, I never get more excited than I do about ribs, especially baby back ribs.
Now my wife is a different story, I have to practically pry her mouth open to get him to eat meat. She loves all things carby, and some more carbs with a side of chicken. She just rolls her eyes when my side of the family begins to drool over all the delish carne selections available. Whenever we barbecue and my mom is visiting, you can be sure there are going to be burgers, dogs and some ribs to be had. However, over the years, with a little gentle pushing and begging here and there, my wife has broaden her horizons (a little). One thing she is now a fanatic about….RIBS. (Finaly right!?)
Ribs have a natural sweetness to the meat, and what ever flavors you add to them, their flavor is only enhanced. Nothing is better than a slow roasted, smoked, fall of the bone, melt in your mouth than a nice big rack of ribs. With the right seasoning and method of cooking, ribs can and will be your favorite cut of meat! It wasn’t until recently that I tried my own hand at making ribs. There are many different flavor profiles that you can choose to infuse into the meat. I have done a more traditional barbecue flavor profile, which turned out delicious. However, this time I wanted to try to go a different flavor profile that will go with my favorite cut of meat……Asian
We love Asian flavors in our home. I wanted to try something different for these Smithfield Back Ribs I recently purchased at Walmart so I created an Asian spice rub to really wow my family. I wanted something with a little sweetness, balanced with a good amount of spice at the end. My family can be a little picky, I do have a 4 year old, so the flavors can’t be to radical!
I mixed all the dry spices together, and added some soy sauce. I took each rack of ribs out or the package and turned them over onto the backside, and removed the silver skin, which is a tough membrane. I then split the rub/marinade between the two racks and completely covered the ribs, massaging the spices into the meat. I then wrap each rack separately in foil creating a tent shape. This allows the meat to self baste and to get really tender. (If you want fall off the bone ribs…do this) You could also slowly smoke them on a grill, either way you will have a fabulous product. I place the ribs into a 300 degree preheated oven and I cook them for 2 and ½-3hrs, just until they are falling off the bone.
The end result was amazing. It had a great kick to it, my little four year old daughter had her juice cup right next to her at the table, but was digging in with abandon. I was so impressed with the Smithfield Back Ribs. It’s a quality product at a great price and Walmart had a great selection. Try out this amazing rib rub the next time you eat ribs, it’s finger lickin’ good!
