Quick Barbecued Ribs


  • 1 lb boneless country-style pork ribs

  • Kitchen browning sauce OR microwave browning powder

  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce, bottled or homemade


  • Cut ribs in pieces not larger than 1 x 1 x 3 inches. If desired, brush pieces with browning sauce or powder.
  • Place ribs in microwave-safe 9x9-inch pie plate, arranging thicker parts to outside edges of dish. Cover with plastic wrap, venting one corner. Microwave on Medium-Low (30% power, about 200 watts) 8 minutes, rotating dish as necessary for even cooking. Drain liquid.
  • Turn ribs over and rearrange so least-cooked parts are to outside edges of dish; re-cover. Continue microwaving on Medium-Low 8 to 9 minutes or just until meat is no longer pink. Drain liquid; spoon barbecue sauce over ribs.
  • Re-cover and microwave on Medium-Low 3 to 4 minutes or until hot. Let stand, tightly covered, 5 to 10 minutes.
