    I made this last night and they turned out really tough. Any suggestions on what I did wrong?

    Of course I didn't know for sure if I got the membrane completely off to start. When the recipe says to lay them cut side down in the DCB what exactly does that mean?

    Maybe we had the wrong type of ribs? I just know my husband tried to eat one then threw them in a pot of water to boil them until we went to bed to see if they would get tender.

    I'm not sure, maybe add water when you're cooking them so they don't get tough.. I'm really not sure!! Sorry!!

    it calls for a 1/4 cup of water, my husband probably actually put in 1/3. I't still not enough to cover it. Has anyone made these yet?

    no, I thought it was new... I saw all the comments about beef, but didn't search for pork

    Go to the bottom of this thread page, and you will see several threads that talk about the ribs....

    I make these quite often, and the only time they ever turned out tough was when they got a bit overcooked. The water shouldn't cover them... it should only cover most of the bottom of the baker.
    My family LOVES the ribs in the DCB, so the only thing I can think is that maybe they were over cooked!?!?!

    I made the ribs in the DCB last week and they were wonderful! Seemed like I had to cook them longer than recipe suggested but just kept checking temp. Maybe you have to be sure to get babybacks too?
