Spare-ribs sous-vide

Well, well, well. It’s been some time since I’ve posted here, but don’t fear, I’m still active and grilling. This weekend it was time for some spare-ribs, but the weather was not playing nice here. Sooo, I’ve decided to start playing with my new kitchen buddy, the sous-vide cooker. Love that thing. Apparently it’s rather easy to do ribs with (at least, if you have a large enough box to put them in).

I started with creating the Memphis style dry rub. Just click on the link to find the mix. Super easy and very tasty!

Once applied, I’ve vacuumed them in sealed bags and put them in the box and submerged them in warm water.
The water was heated until 61 degrees Celcius (about 142 degrees Fahrenheit), and I’ve left them in there for 30 hours.

30 hours in, I’ve opened the bags, and ‘painted’ the cooked ribs with some easy home made BBQ sauce. Just click the link to find it too, just like the rub.

Now it’s just a matter of grilling it for about 15-25 minutes and creating a nice crusty outside. I’ve simply done some crisps to go along and we had a fingerlicking good meal!

Great way of doing ribs, and definitely worth a second go!
