Steps

    With slotted spoon or tongs, carefully remove ribs to serving platter. In small microwavable bowl, heat remaining 1/4 cup barbecue sauce covered on High 30 to 60 seconds or until heated through. Brush ribs with heated barbecue sauce; garnish with sliced green onions. Serve with mashed potatoes.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    For this recipe, ask your butcher for traditional English-style ribs instead of the thinner Korean-style ribs. For individual ribs, as suggested in the ingredient deck, cut between the bones for sections that have one bone each.
  • tip 2
    For easier cleanup when browning short ribs, cover skillet with splatter shield to catch some of the splattering grease.
