Baby Back Ribs

Inspired by LongHorn Steakhouse’s Executive Chefs

 

Ingredients

 

  • 2 racks of baby back ribs
  • 2 tablespoons of canola oil
  • 2 cups of BBQ sauce of your choice
  • 2 tablespoons of kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons of cracked pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of granulated garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon of granulated onion powder

 

Directions

 

  • You can find prepared and cut racks of ribs at your local butcher or grocery store. If you have a full rack of ribs, we suggest you cut them in half if you’re cooking in an oven in your home kitchen or on a standard gas grill.
  • Season ribs with salt, pepper, granulated onion powder and granulated garlic powder.
  • Lay ribs meat-side down on a baking sheet with an elevated edge. Add one cup of water and cover the sheet pan completely in aluminum foil.
  • Bake in 325-degree oven for approx. 2 ½ hours or until meat is tender enough to be pulled from the bone.
  • Chill the baby back ribs in the refrigerator for about one hour so that the meat doesn’t fall apart.
  • Apply canola oil to grill grates and heat to medium-high.
  • Place ribs on grill meat-side up and baste with BBQ sauce.
  • Grill for approx. 3 minutes.
  • Flip so meat-side is down, and grill for 3 minutes. Apply BBQ sauce to the back of the ribs.
  • Grill ribs until BBQ sauce has started to caramelize and meat has started to get crisp edges.
  • Let ribs rest for 5 minutes then brush with BBQ sauce before cutting them into 1 and 2-bone pieces.
  • Serve with remaining BBQ sauce on the side for dipping.

 

Recipe serves four.

How to Grill the Perfect Burger

Tips from LongHorn Steakhouse

 

Introduction

  • LongHorn Steakhouse is known for expertly grilled steaks … but our grilling expertise doesn’t end there.
  • At LongHorn, our steakhouse burgers are expertly grilled, uniquely topped and finished with a branded LongHorn brioche bun. Here are some tips for how you can achieve a similar flavor home.

 

Select Quality Meat

  • Start off with quality ground beef that has some fat content.
  • At LongHorn, our grill experts use 75/25 to ensure our burgers are juicy and tender.

 

Season Like a Pro

  • LongHorn uses one of three secret dry seasonings, but similar flavors can be achieved at home. Use salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder – what we like to call the “Big Four.” Adjust the seasonings as needed.

 

Grill to Perfection

  • If you’re using an outdoor chargrill, fully clean and prep it using a wire-bristled brush and light coat of vegetable or olive oil. Heat the surface of the grill so that it’s very hot – about 500 degrees.
  • If grilling indoors, use a grill pan on medium heat and add a coat of vegetable or olive oil. Place the burger in the center of the pan and grill for approximately 2.5 minutes on each side.
  • Cook until its internal temperature reaches 155 degrees.

 

Dress It Up

  • For the LongHorn Steakhouse experience at home, pair your perfectly grilled burger with a toasted Brioche bun and toppings, such as lettuce, tomatoes, onions, melted cheddar cheese and applewood smoked bacon – like we do on our Bacon & Cheddar Burger.
  • You can also top your burger with bleu cheese dressing and bleu cheese crumbles – like our Black & Bleu Burger.
  • And if you want to be even more creative, consider a unique topping with prime rib – like our Prime Time Burger – or a sunny-side up egg, like we do with our Rancher’s Burger.
  • For a limited time during lunch, guests can enjoy our new burger combos. This offer features a third-pound burger, including the Bacon & Cheddar Burger, Black & Bleu Burger or the Steakhouse Burger with soup or salad – all starting at $7.99.
