Easy steps to removing the membrane from baby back ribs

How to remove the membrane from baby back ribs

For the rib meat to be tender, you need to remove the tough membrane first.

Slide a dull knife under the membrane and along a bone far enough that you can pry an edge of the membrane loose.

Then grab the loose edge and peel off the membrane in one big sheet or a few smaller pieces. You can use a paper towel if the membrane is hard to grip.
