    Default Beef back ribs

    Got a mess of beef back ribs for a dollar a pound yesterday. They don't
    look like they've got a ton of meat on them, and I usually make pork
    ribs. Any advice for a first-timer?

    this is my all time favorite Beef Rib grilling recipe....

    Beef Ribs with Cabernet Sauce
    from Weber’s Big Book of Grilling™ by Jamie Purviance and Sandra S.
    McRae

    Prep Time: 15 minutes
    Marinating Time: 8 to 12 hours
    Grilling Time: 1-1/2 to 2 hours
    Rub
    2 teaspoons dried marjoram
    2 teaspoons paprika
    1 teaspoon granulated garlic
    1 teaspoon light brown sugar
    1 teaspoon kosher salt
    1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

    2 beef rib racks, about 5 pounds

    Sauce
    1-1/2 cups barbecue sauce
    1 cup Cabernet Sauvignon

    Kosher salt
    Freshly ground pepper

    1. In a small bowl combine the rub ingredients.

    2. Trim the ribs of any excess fat. Press the rub into the meat, cover
    with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 8 to 12 hours.

    3. Allow the ribs to stand at room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes
    before grilling. Sear them over direct medium heat (350°F to 450°F),
    with the lid closed as much as possible, until evenly browned, about
    10 minutes, turning once. Transfer to a heavy-gauge aluminum pan,
    large enough to hold the ribs in one layer. If necessary, cut the ribs
    into smaller sections.

    4. In a medium saucepan whisk the sauce ingredients. Bring to a boil
    over high heat. Pour the sauce over the ribs and tightly cover with
    aluminum foil.

    5. Grill the ribs over indirect medium heat, with the lid closed,
    until very tender, 1-1/2 to 2 hours, turning once.

    6. Remove the ribs from the pan and cut into one- or two-rib pieces.
    Skim off any fat from the sauce and season with salt and pepper. Serve
    the ribs hot with the sauce on the side.

    Makes 4 servings

    If there's a membrane on the inside surface of the ribs, I'd remove it
    for whatever method of cooking you decide on. I know my first statement
    is controversial here. But here's the thing. You'll either like the ribs
    the same or better after removing the membrane. Where's the downside?
    I'm much more familiar with regular ol' beef ribs and don't know the
    last time I bought back ribs, so others will have to give best methods.

    Do you have a dog? <g>
    I don't care for beef ribs, they taste too bone-y to me. If I had a bunch,
    though, I'd roast them slowly and use them to make beef stock.

    Safeway in San Leandro. It looked like an advertised special, not a
    used-meat kind of thing.

    I just did a batch of those last weekend. :-) I followed the package
    instructions. They've been cheap here lately too. I did 6 lbs. and
    braised them at 325 for 3 hours, then took them out to the BBQ and
    smoked them for 30 minutes.

    They were lovely.

    They have more meat on them than you might think...

    I think they may kepp moisture in. I never thought about removing the
    membranes. Also, I like chewing the browned membrane off of the
    bones. Yeah, I'm an animal when it comes to bone-in meat.

    put them on a rack in the oven at 350F bake them for about an hour,
    (keep the drippings if you like or throw them away) then put into a
    big pot ( 4-6 quart dutch oven) with one whole onion, (maybe two
    onions) cut up chunks of carrots, the same with the celery, throw in a
    few garlic cloves bring to a boil, and then simmer for a few hours.
    add kosher salt for taste & fresh ground pepper. put into the fridge
    overnite. in the morning, scrape off most of the fat, but not all, as
    this is needed for flavor. put into storage jugs & freeze. you now
    have beef broth to use for rice, veggies, gravies, vegetable soup,
    etc.

    <snicker> Shades of moosemeat eh?

    Actually, I used my table top roaster and put them up on a rack at 325
    for 3 hours. It tends to braise more than roast as it keeps them from
    drying out but they are up out of the drippings. I was doing 6 lbs. at
    one time.

    The BBQ finished them nicely. :-)

    I didn't have anything to add to this thread until today. I was chatting
    with a lady of Mexican origin in the HEB while we were both waiting to
    buy shrimp. She had a package of those big beef ribs and she told me how
    she makes them.

    She looks for a package with the least amount of fat. She cuts them into
    individual ribs. She puts a rub on them like the kind used for ribs or
    brisket then puts them in a covered dutch oven with a little water and
    bakes them for 1.5 hours at 350° F. She said to serve them with barbecue
    sauce on the side if you like or to even bake them in the sauce, but she
    doesn't do this.

    Thought I'd pass it along FWIW

    Well, the roaster did cook them to perfection (nice and tender) but they
    tasted like stew meat even tho' I did put fajita seasoning on them as a
    "rub". They really needed the mesquite smoked flavor to taste right to
    me.
