New This Month

My son, EJ, loves these ribs, so I named them after him. I bake them with a spice rub, then baste them with sauce before they grill, and oh baby, are they moist and tender.

    I have enjoyed other rib recipes of Emeril's which were outstanding, but this rib recipe one along with the rib sauce was unappealing.

    Please try this GREAT easy rib recipe. I just use whatever spices I have on hand, wrap them in foil and bake for exactly 2 hours. I cheat and use a bottled bbq sauce and remove them from the foil and put them back under the broiler for a few minutes. I am a southerner and we eat bbq at least once a week. Great for company too!!!

    These ribs have become a favorite for my husband and I... Just make sure you cook it for more like 2 hours (or more). For a smaller version we buy country style spare ribs and that only takes about 1 1/2 hours.

    Good but not great. We usually really enjoy Emeril's recipes but this one just didn't do it. Maybe the ribs needed to cook longer.

    My husband and toddler loved these ribs and sauce. I prepared exactly according to recipe. Next time I will cook a little longer in the oven perhaps 2- 2 1/2 hours. I like the meat to fall off the bone a little more easily. This may be my new regular rib and sauce recipe.

    This sounds really yummy. I especially like the tang from the apple cider vinegar. This seems to be a "meeting of minds" between those folks who like their barbecue sauce sweet and those who don't want any sweetness within a mile of their pork ribs.
