LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Earlier this month, our John Trierweiler featured Texas Roadhouse, and the "Pink Heals" rib-eating contest fundraiser on Where's Wink Now. With the Fourth of July next week, we are firing up the WINK kitchen. Blake from Texas Roadhouse joined us Wednesday to explain how to create those legendary ribs at home.
It's a three-step process that starts with seasoning, then onto cooking, and finally grilling.
First, pick out a dry rub and add the seasoning to the ribs. The more seasoning the better. Make you you put seasoning on both sides.
Then put it in a deep pan, and add water and liquid smoke to the pan.
Then, put a lid on it, and cook it at 350 degrees for about three hours. Be careful not to open the oven too much, because it will slow down the cooking process.
Then, light up the grill. The grill needs to be at least 400 degrees. You'll want to season the grill and put some oil on it before you add the ribs; that way, you won't get any flare ups.
On the grill, you can cook the ribs from 10 to 15 minutes.
