Father's Day is just around the corner. It's a chance to whip up a special menu with your beloved dad, husband, brother or son.

Today's recipe is my dear hubby's favorite food: BBQ ribs. If you are up to trying to impress with the right dishes, I have got you covered. This recipe is very easy and quick to fix. My dad taught me how to make these! Everyone loves them!

So, let's go to the kitchen!

For serving 6 people the ingredients are:

  • 2 racks ribs, membrane on bone side removed
  • 1 tablespoon steak seasoning, or to taste
  • 1 cup water, or more as needed
  • cup barbeque sauce, or to taste
  • a large foil pan.

First, preheat the grill to low heat.

Then, cut the ribs in half and season with steak seasoning. Place ribs, bone-side down, in a foil pan; add water. Cover the pan with a sheet of aluminum foil.

Cook ribs on the preheated grill, adding water every hour if the liquid has evaporated, 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours. Add barbeque sauce to ribs and continue cooking for 30 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

If necessary add more water, you don't want your ribs overcooked.

Add some of the best sides for ribs such as mac & cheese, potato salad, vinegar coleslaw or grilled corn on the cob, there are so many options.

Serve hot and grab your extra large beer mug and enjoy!

Have a Pura Vida weekend!
