Essential Tips
• Ask your butcher or meat manager at the supermarket about beef ribs. As a guide serve 2-3 beef ribs per person
• Simmer ribs the day before, then drain, marinate and refrigerate overnight. It’s then easy to simply barbecue them the next day. Bring the ribs to room temperature before barbecuing for a perfect result
• Ribs can be cooked on the barbecue with either indirect or direct heat. Using indirect heat in a covered barbecue will take about 12 minutes. If you’re using direct heat over an open barbecue, have a plate next to the barbecue or a cooling rack so they can be pushed aside
