This is the recipe for Applebee's famous riblets. It requires grilling (or broiling) the ribs, then steaming them to make them tender. It takes several hours to make them, but since they slow steam in the oven for a long time, it is a great choice for a party dish.
Riblets are technically still ribs, just a smaller part. They are the portion of pork meat that the butcher slices off from the underside of spare ribs. They contain cartilage but no bone and are just as delicious.
Enjoy this riblet recipe with your favorite sides, such as potato salad, baked beans, and corn on the cob.
2 pounds pork rib tips
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 clove garlic, minced
1 cup water, plus more if too much evaporates during cooking
1 tablespoon Liquid Smoke
2 cups barbecue sauce
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
Preheat grill to medium heat.
Season ribs with salt, pepper, and garlic.
Place on grill and sear on each side. Continue grilling until the ribs are nearly done.
Place ribs in a broiler pan on a rack. Fill the bottom of the pan with the water and liquid smoke.
Close the pan or cover it to seal. Place in the oven at 275 F/135 C for 2 to 4 hours. The longer you leave them, the more tender they will be.
Brush with plenty of heated barbecue sauce right before you serve.
Pair with your choice of sides and enjoy!
