Okay, so I don't quite know if it's the Best Ribs Recipe Ever, but if you're looking for a ribs recipe with one of the highest deliciousness / effort ratios, it's hard to beat this one...
St. Louis Pork Ribs
I made these last night, and they were great. The ribs came out nice and tender, and the while process took less than 2 hours start to finish. It helped that I had a pretty good quality sauce, too. (Rufus Teague's Honey Sweet Sauce)
It's funny -- even though I'm a big fan of stews, I always have a knee jerk negative reaction to the idea of boiling meat (it just conjures up images of flavorless, weirdly-colored meat-like product). Glad I was able to try this out.
Incidentally, if you're looking for the Best Pulled Pork Recipe Ever, it turns out you can find it here. Who'da thunk Esquire magazine would be my go-to guide for recipes these days?
