Ready in 45 minutes

This simple Scandinavian-inspired rub enhances the succulent flavor of pork back ribs, and eschews the addition of a sauce.


1 slab pork back ribs; about 1-1/2 to 2 pounds
2 tablespoons black peppercorns
1 tablespoon fennel seed
1 tablespoon dried sage
1 teaspoon Salt

Original recipe makes 2



In blender container or spice grinder, blend together well the pepper, fennel, sage and salt. Rub about 2 tablespoons rub, or to taste, over all surfaces of ribs. Store any remaining rub in tightly covered jar.

Prepare banked fire in covered kettle-style grill. Grill ribs over indirect heat, turning a couple of times, for about 2 hours, until meat is very tender.
