There’s really nothing we love more than good ol’ American comfort food. But what we don’t always love are the fat and calories that come with it. The challenge here was keeping every last bit of crispy, crunchy, creamy, cheesy comfort while cutting the calories.
Barbecue Pork Ribs
Pork loin back ribs are meaty and lean, so they cook quickly. Ribs are all about proper cooking, so that you get just a mouthful of meat you can tear with your teeth (proper barbecue doesn't actually fall off the bone). To ensure they get a nice char and have smoky flavor, start them on a grill with wood chips, but then wrap them in foil and finish in the oven. This ensures even cooking and allows the ribs to make their own pan sauce, which you’ll want to spoon over the top when you serve them.
