Drunken Pork Ribs

If you can spare a can of beer (or steal one from your hubby's stash, like I do occasionally), this is a great recipe for a hot summer day when you'd rather be outside than in. There's virtually no prepping, and if you use paper plates there will be just as little to clean up, as well.

Drunken Pork Ribs

Boneless pork ribs

1 can of beer (one can for 6-8 ribs, use 2 cans if you need more)

Steak or grilling seasoning of your choice (Lawry's Seasoned Salt or Famous Dave's Steak & Burger Seasoning work really well)

Generously season the ribs in a large bowl with a cover or a big pot with a lid.

Pour the beer over the ribs.

Stir the mixture so that all the ribs have been coated. Marinate for 2 hours to overnight.

Light up the grill; if you are using the old-fashioned charcoal grill like I have, be sure the coals are white-hot and spread evenly across the bottom of the grill to avoid hot spots.
Put the ribs on the grill, no additional seasoning is necessary. Discard the marinade - never reuse that stuff!

Grill for about 7-8 minutes, then flip and grill another 7 to 8. I cut halfway through the thickest piece to check for doneness - any juices should run clear.
Serve with BBQ sauce, if desired, & enjoy!
