Plated + Served: Make-Ahead BBQ Spare Ribs


Summer won’t be here for another few weeks, I know, but let’s make a promise right now: This summer we WILL relax, take it easy and enjoy the sun, the heat, and life itself.

And this is how we’re going to start: A deliciously easy recipe for Make-Ahead BBQ Spare Ribs.

The key words here? “Make-Ahead.” There’s no need to stand over the grill all day to prepare these succulent, spicy ribs. Roast them in the oven the day before and grill them right before you’re ready to eat.

I wrote this recipe for my pals at Right@Home, the bilingual website that offers up not only healthy make-ahead recipes, but also helpful tips on how you and the family can keep the house clean and organized this summer.

Right@Home also has great ideas for fun summer activities for the whole family and some pretty cool ideas for entertaining al fresco.
