Betty's Success Tip
For these smaller, party-sized pieces, be sure to ask your butcher to cut the ribs lengthwise across the bones, then crosswise into one-rib pieces.
Ingredient Substitution
Out of fresh garlic? Check your spice rack. One medium clove of garlic is equal to 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder or 1/4 teaspoon instant minced garlic.
