BBQ Beer Ribs
BBQ Beer Ribs happened one night when I was planning on cooking ribs for dinner and started marinating the ribs in my homemade BBQ sauce in the fridge. I have made this dish before and noticed that the ribs were tough after marinating for 1 hour.
During my second attempt at making ribs, while they were marinating, my wife and I decided to watch a movie. Like we often do, we fell asleep during the movie and did not wake up until the next morning.
Having completely forgotten about dinner and the marinating ribs, I awoke the next morning in complete hunger. While my wife was still asleep, I opened the fridge searching for something to eat. I noticed the marinating ribs. Having nothing else to eat for breakfast, I went outside and fired up the grill to cook the ribs for breakfast.
Even though we still find it weird to eat ribs for breakfast, we still say that these ribs were some of the best we have had! Until this day, I still marinate my ribs over night and wait to enjoy the next day. BBQ Beer RibsIngredients:
