Applebee's Baby Back Ribs

Comment from Joseph P. - I used to be a prep cook for Applebee's and have a comment about the baby back ribs. The sauce was prepackaged, so I can't help you there. But before they covered the ribs with sauce, they would actually coat them with bacon grease to make them tender and then cover them with foil and broil them. After they were broiled they would cover them with sauce and grill them to serve. (Personally I liked them right out of the broiler without the sauce). Just an FYI.

Recipe Ingredients


Barbecue Sauce


  1. Put ribs in a large pot with enough water to cover them. Bring water to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 1 hour or until ribs are fork tender.
  2. Mix all sauce ingredients together in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered, stirring often, for 30 minutes or until slightly thickened.
  3. Heat broiler. Line broiler with foil for easy cleanup. Place ribs, meat side down, on broiler pan, brush with 1/2 the sauce and broil 4-5 inches from heat source for 6 to 7 minutes.
  4. Turn ribs over , brush with remaining sauce and broil 6 to 7 minutes longer or until edges are slightly charred.
