Fennel-Pepper Back Ribs

Fennel-Pepper Back RibsThis simple Scandinavian-inspired rub enhances the succulent flavor of pork back ribs, and eschews the addition of a sauce. Serve with dilled cucumber salad, potato salad and rye bread.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 slab pork back ribs, about 1 1/2 to 2 pounds
2 tablespoons black peppercorns
1 tablespoon fennel seed
1 tablespoon dried sage
1 teaspoon salt

Cooking Directions:

  1. In blender container or spice grinder, blend together well the pepper, fennel, sage and salt.
  2. Rub about 2 tablespoons rub, or to taste, over all surfaces of ribs. Store any remaining rub in tightly covered jar.
  3. Prepare banked fire in covered kettle-style grill.
  4. Grill ribs over indirect heat, turning a couple of times, for about 2 hours, until meat is very tender.

Makes 2 servings.
