Do a Dry Rub FirstWritten by Shauna Hanus
The debate on ribs has ended in my home. After years of toil I have finally capitulated and agreed to make ribs fool proof way every time. Consequently neighbors, kids, and family from out of town all place special requests for ribs.
To begin pre-heat your oven or BBQ to around 200° degrees Fahrenheit. If heat reaches much above 250 ° degrees you run considerable risk of your ribs drying out.
Next rub ribs with your favorite dry rub and place them bone side up in a roasting pan. I have found that jarred dry rubs are well balanced with sweet and spice and make for a good tasting rib. If you have a particular preference mix up a batch of your own personal seasonings and store it in an air tight container with rest of your spices. You will then always have your favorite rub on hand.
Clarifying ButterWritten by Shauna Hanus
Clarified butter is a delightfully rich concentrated butter that can be used in cooking and making mouth watering sauces. Traditional methods for making this rich butter concentrate can be a little intimidating at first, but not anymore. There is a very simple and easy 4 step method to make clarified butter. The only catch is that you need to plan a day ahead of time.
The first step is to slowly melt one to two sticks of unsalted butter over low heat. Using unsalted butter will help to prevent your final product from being too salty. When butter is completely melted pour it into a bread pan.
After you have transferred melted butter to bread pan, loosely cover bread pan with plastic wrap and place it in refrigerator to cool over night.
