Marinade for Ribs Recipe Process

Directions: 

1. Place the ribs in a casserole dish and cover with marinade.

2. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, but I recommend leaving them overnight for best results.

3. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

4. Prepare a cookie sheet and line it with aluminum foil or parchment paper.

Rib Cooking Tips & Tricks:

  • Ensure your meat is thoroughly cooked with the use of a meat thermometer. The internal temperature of the ribs should reach 190 degrees F.
  • Cover leftover ribs in plastic wrap or place them in an airtight container to store in the fridge for a few days.
  • Try our smoked ribs on a Traeger pellet grill and coat the ribs with our favorite dry rub.
  • Using a sharp knife is very important when working in the kitchen. Not only is a blunt knife more difficult to use, it can also be more dangerous.
  • Though we love using our Traeger to make these short ribs, they can also be made using a gas grill, charcoal grill, in the oven, or in a slow cooker.
  • The key to really tender meat is cooking it low and slow. The long cook time allows the connective tissues in tough cuts of meat to break down. Marinating your meat also helps this process along.
