Before grilling, the ribs are dusted with a pungent rub -cumin, chili powder and paprika -to give them lots and lots of flavor and color. During the last minutes of grilling, they 're basted with your favorite barbecue sauce.
I'VE SHARED this recipe with many friends who also cook for two. We all agree - small recipes are hard to find! This dish remains one of my favorites since it takes little effort to prepare and is so tasty. Plus, if you are serving a larger group, it is easy to double. -Margery Bryan, Royal City, Washington
Beef short ribs are a highly flavorful cut. This method of cooking makes the meat so tender you won't need a knife. The thick rich sauce is delicious served with mashed potatoes and the carrots that cook with the ribs.
