Kitchen Tips
Ask the meat cutter at your supermarket to cut the ribs across the bones to form these mini ribs.
To reduce stress the day of your party, bake these riblets up to 2 days ahead of time, then tightly wrap and refrigerate them. To reheat them for serving, cover the pan and bake the riblets at 350°F for 25 to 30 minutes or until they're hot.
