Mom's Baby Back Rib Sliders - Home & Family

Mom’s Baby Back Rib Sliders

Chef Jake Smollett is back in the Home & Family kitchen and today he is making baby back rib sliders the way his mom taught him. His secret is to cook the ribs on low for 6-7 hours overnight and then spread the meat on baked sourdough bread. He uses the sweet and tangy flavor of apple cider vinegar and red onion pickles as his marinade for the meat as an added touch.
