How to Make Tony Roma Ribs?

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 260°C (500°F).

Step 2: Wash and dry the ribs. Toss the ingredients with salt and mix well to distribute them evenly.

Step 3: If you want to use a broiler, fill the bottom pan with water (about an inch) and set the grate on top.

Step 4: Please make sure the ribs don’t touch each other when you put them on the grill. Put a tent made of foil over the ribs. Ensure the foil isn’t touching the ribs and that the tent is closed so that the steam from the water can’t get out.

Step 5: Bake for an hour. Take the pan out of the oven, and leave it covered! Let completely cool down with the foil tent still in place – about 2-3 hours. 

Step 6: Then wrap the ribs in aluminum foil and place them in the refrigerator overnight. So that they don’t dissolve on the grill, you should do this to re-solidify them.

Step 7: Put the grill or broiler on high heat.

Step 8: Put the rib racks on the grill’s grate. When they are golden and bubbling, after about 3–4 minutes, coat them with barbecue sauce and broil for another 2–4 minutes. Then, flip them and repeat the process. 

Step 9: Take it out of the broiler and cover it with more sauce. Serve it.

Tips

  • You won’t know what kind of ribs you’re getting if you buy them in a closed box. It would help if you also avoided slabs of ribs where you could see the bones.
  • When preparing your ribs, remove the silver-coloured skin from the underside or, if possible, have your butcher do it.
  • Never marinate your ribs at room temperature; they should always be in the fridge.
  • Before putting the ribs on the grill, you’ll want to ensure the heat is low to medium. 
  • Use a rag or brush to spread a lot of vegetable oil over your grill to keep it from sticking.
  • Give your cooked ribs about 15 minutes to cool down before you serve them. Serve your ribs with extra BBQ sauce on the side.
  • Stay close to your grill and spray the hot spot with water from a spray bottle as soon as you see your meat starting to catch fire.

Final words: 

When Tony Roma opened his first restaurant in his Miami neighbourhood in 1972, he had no idea that his baby back ribs would become as famous as they are today. This house specialty is slow-cooked, smoked, and basted with our original sauce until the meat is so tender that it falls off the bone. This is what Tony Roma is known for!
