Can’t Beat Braised Baby Back Ribs

“If you could have anything to eat right now, at this exact moment, what would it be?” If you want to work-up a true Foodie this is the question to ask.

Some will give an immediate answer, some will ponder for a moment. Some will give a different answer every time they are asked, some will always give the same answer. I would say 9 out of 10 times I will answer “Baby Back Ribs.”

One of my favorite Baby Back Rib recipes is from Alton Brown’s Good Eats program on the Food Network. This is a braising recipe, not BBQ. Braising usually involves the “low-and-slow” cooking technique which inevitably leads to meat following off the bone. And that is the way I like it.
