Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C).
  2. Place the rack of beef ribs in front of you on a work surface with the shiny white membrane facing up. Slip the blade of a sharp knife under the membrane at one end, and slice the membrane off the meat in a single piece, if possible. Discard the chewy membrane. Rub the ribs thoroughly with sea salt, front and back. Place the ribs onto a cooking rack in a roasting pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until very tender, about 6 hours. Lightly baste the beef with water (use beef broth if you prefer) after the first 1 1/2 hours, being careful not to dislodge the salt. Baste again every 45 minutes to 1 hour; after 6 hours of total cooking time, remove from oven and allow to rest 10 to 15 minutes before slicing up into servings.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • No matter how tempted you may be, don't baste with too much water as you don't want to wash the salt off.
  • Editor's Note
  • If you don't want to remove the membrane yourself, your butcher can do it for you.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Use the handle end of a spoon to pry the membrane from the ribs. Once you pry up enough to get a grip it will peel right off. its pretty tough and unless you cut it it comes off in one piece

Perfect ribs! Followed Marcia's suggestion and used coarse ground sea salt, garlic pepper and a bit of Maggi seasoning. None better!
