Chef John's Copycat McRib® Sandwich

Rating: 4.5 stars 28
I tip my cap to a certain fast food franchise for coming up with the idea for a boneless baby back rib sandwich, the only downside being that they use about 60 mystery ingredients-- ribs not necessarily being one of them. That's why you should try this easy homemade version with real ribs; simply bake, chill, cut, sauce, finish on the grill, and voila! One of the best sandwiches I've ever had.

Instant Pot® Galbi (Korean-Style Short Ribs)

Rating: 4.5 stars 9
This version of delicious Korean beef short ribs dish for your Instant Pot® or other multi-cooker pressure cooker will have the ribs falling off the bone! Soaking the ribs first is the traditional method. I recommend soaking for at least an hour, though traditionally you would soak them for longer than that, changing the water after the first hour. If you don't have an Asian pear, an apple will do as a substitute. Serve over white rice.

Italian Sausage Baby Back Ribs

Rating: 5 stars 24
These Italian sausage-spiced baby back ribs have a wonderful flavor, which is further highlighted by the spicy, sweet, and tangy orange glaze . Serve them up at your next game day party or potluck.

Spicy Korean Ribs

Rating: 4.5 stars 7
These spicy Korean ribs are a family favorite recipe, picked it from the local paper. Best if left in the fridge overnight, the flavors are a lot stronger. The more sauce, the better! Serve with Asian sesame coleslaw.

Peposa Dell'Impruneta (Tuscan Black Pepper Beef)

Rating: 5 stars 54
The story goes that terracotta tile workers in Impruneta, Tuscany, would place this stew into clay pots and cook it in their still-hot kilns overnight where it would be ready in the morning. They used a lot of pepper because the meat was not always top quality. The amount of pepper is up to you--I used a ridiculous amount, but even so it wasn't overpowering.

Botack's Fall-Off-the-Bone Pineapple Baked Rack of Ribs

Rating: 5 stars 3
See for yourself! You can make your own dipping sauce, use your favorite barbeque sauce, or just eat them as-is. You're probably going to want to double the recipe.

Instant Pot® Ribs

Rating: 4.5 stars 14
Instant Pot® ribs are so tender they fall of the bone. The best part is that you can cook them start to finish in just a little over an hour.

Grilled Kiwi and Chili-Rubbed Short Ribs

Rating: 4 stars 1
We tied the world record here for fewest ingredients in a marinade, with one, but thanks to the kiwi's enzymatic magic, that's all we need. Unlike some tropical fruit marinades, kiwi doesn't turn the meat into mush, and provides a nice, slightly sweet and acidic base for our ancho chili rub. Finish with a sprinkling of green onions and a side of barbecue sauce and potato salad.
