How do you cook beef back ribs?

I cooked for many years at our local Elks lodge and I would first par-boil them for about a half and hour and then put them in a large pan and cover them with my favorite bbq sauce and place foil over top. I then cooked them for at least an hour to make them so they just fall off the bone.

Add this to both suggestions: 1 onion, cut in half; 2 carrots, washed; 2 sticks of celery; 1/2 tbsp whole peppercorn. The taste in the meat will be fabulous! Answer I usually lay mind in the roasting pan and cover with water with a little salt and pepper and slowly let it cook for about an hour at 350 degrees. This takes the excess fat off it as well. Before you take it out check with a fork to see that it is tender but not falling apart. After I do this and drain the ribs well I either BBQ it or do it under the broiler with my favorite BBQ sauce.

I usually put mine in a slow cooker and cover with BBQ sauce and cook them on the lowest setting all day the meat is tender and falls off the bone.this is a good way to cook them if you are going to be away from home all day.

Put ribs in pan. Sprinkle with seasoned meat tenderizer, or a seasoning you like to use on meat. Sprinkle both sides with brown sugar. Pour about 1/4 cup cider vinegar and water in pan. Cover with foil and bake for 1-2 hrs in oven at about 300 degrees. Ready to eat now or better, put them on a hot grill or broil to brown some. Baste with BBQ Sauce with either way.

Never boil ribs. It stresses the meat out and makes it more tough than it already is. Always sear your ribs in a hot pan until brown on both sides, this gives the ribs and the sauce more flavor once you slow cook them. I braise them in beef stock with any type of flavoring you wish or BBQ sauce with sauteed mirepoix (carrots, celery, onion), some bay leaves, whole garlic, peppercorns, rosemary, and thyme then braise/slowcook for about 8-12 hours depending on size and machine you are using. They are done when they fall off the bone.
