Garlic Crusted Baby Back Ribs
What? BBQ ribs can be a Lean and Green recipe? Oh yes they can! Juicy, succulent and chew down to the bone ribs are fine on program so long as you don’t slather them in sugary, garbage-y BBQ sauce.
But what about the FLAVOR you might say? Well, Stacey’s got you covered- and without ANY extra fat either!
The method is a simple combination of Stacey’s Smoked Sea Salt and Garlic Gusto Seasoning sprinkled on as a dry rub and then left to soak on the ribs for 1-24 hours. (If you can leave them overnight, the flavor is INCREDIBLE!) Then flash cooked on high heat, these baby back ribs are decadently wonderful, at any time of year.
- Sprinkle Salt and Gusto over ribs and spread to evenly coat. Wrap ribs in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for one hour to overnight (the longer, the better!)
- When ready to cook, preheat outdoor grill to high heat.
- Reduce heat to medium and place the ribs on the grill. Cook for 10 minutes.
Flip the ribs over and cook for an additional 7-10 minutes, depending on the thickness of the ribs. Test with a meat thermometer to ensure they are done to your likeness. (for a great temperature reference, please check out: http://putporkonyourfork.com/pork-basics/cooking-guide/.
Remove from the grill and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.

(**NOTE** Many people have asked HOW can you cook ribs in 20 minutes?? The key is to use a good quality, thin BABY BACK rib- not a super thick rib. This, in combination with not overcooking them leaves you with a mouthwatering, succulent and perfectly cooked rib, every time. Ask your butcher to help you make the right selection.)
