Preparing Baby Back Ribs

Step 1

Choose ribs with a generous amount of meat, ideally an inch or so thick.

Step 2

Trim any meat or fat that dangles from the bone side.

Step 3

Also trim any tough sinew (silver skin) on the meaty side.

Step 4

Slide the tip of a meat thermometer under the membrane and over a bone.

Step 5

Pick up the edge of the membrane with a paper towel and peel it off.

Step 6

Season the ribs lightly on the bone side. Don’t forget the edges!

Step 7

Season the ribs more heavily on the meaty side.

Step 8

Arrange the ribs in a rack, with all of them facing the same direction.
