What You'll Need

  • For Basting Sauce:
  • 1 cup/120 mL tomato sauce
  • 1 cup/120 mL barbecue sauce (your favorite brand)
  • 1/4 cup/60 mL cola
  • 2 tablespoons/30 mL honey
  • 2 tablespoons/30 mL brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon/15 mL apple cider vinegar

  • 2 teaspoons/10 mL salt
  • 2 teaspoons/10 mL paprika
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL white pepper
  • 3 pounds/1.3 kg beef ribs

How to Make It

1. To prepare sauce: Combine all sauce ingredients in a saucepan. Let mixture come to a boil and then reduce and allow to simmer for 5 minutes. If the sauce is too thick, add 2 to 3 tablespoons water. Remove sauce from heat and set aside.

2. To prepare ribs: Take thawed ribs out of packaging and place in large pot with water. Parboil the ribs for 5 minutes and remove them onto a baking sheet. You might need to do the ribs in batches since they can be so large.

After ribs are par-boiled, apply rib rub to each side of ribs.

3. Preheat grill. ​Place beef ribs on the grill and cook over medium-low heat. Turn and baste ribs every 15 minutes, until finished cooking, about an 1 1/2 hours. Remove from heat and serve immediately.
