Does it make sense to parboil spare ribs before you roast or grill them?


1) Par-boiling for 10-15 minutes and then grilling will help reduce some of the fat in the ribs. It will also help make them “fall of the bone” if you’re grilling at higher heats.

2) Par boil for one hour with a few onions, salt and pepper, and then a sauce is applied for broiling. This does significantly cut down on cook time, and also doesn’t require the oven to be on as long and results in tender meat.

That being said, Slow cooking ribs does result in tastier ribs. The boil and broil method is best used in colder weather and don’t want to cook low for the required number of hours.
