Two slabs of St. Louis style ribs from Alex Guarnaschelli with some cut into individual ribs and a knife lying in the middle.
St. Louis style ribs start with a sweet and spicy dry rub. Then we double down with tangy, sweet barbecue sauce made with red-wine vinegar and blackstrap molasses. Guaranteed to wobble knees.
