Get your butcher to cut your ribs in half lengthwise for this terrific rib recipe. This has been a hit at every party I've ever taken it to so now I just bring copies of the recipes with me when it's my turn to provide the appetizer. You can also make a meal out of these with some rice and flash-cooked greens. Prep time does not include marinading time.
