We were a little rushed for our evening meal tonight and there was little to be found in the pantry. However, I finally found a rack of frozen baby back ribs in the freezer, a packet of heat and eat rice pilaf, and enough lettuce, carrots, onion, and tomatoes for a small salad each.

The quickest way to get juicy tender ribs is to boil them for 45 minutes on low to medium heat.

I cut the rack in to so they would fit into my boiler, filled with water that just covered the meat, poured in a beer (not one of favorites – too precious to waste), added salt, garlic powder, and a little cayenne pepper for subtle flavor.

While the boiling was going on I opened a Blue Moon for myself and relaxed.

I then took the ribs out of the water and placed them on a slightly oiled Pampered Chef baking dish. I covered both sides of the ribs in sweet honey barbeque sauce and tomato catsup. I baked them for 1 hour, taking them out in 30 minutes to recover them in more sauce.

That left time for another Blue Moon!

Say hello to my little ribs! Delicious!
