Cook the Issue 2010: Cornmeal and Green Peppercorn Crusted Spareribs

These got mixed reviews.  My husband really liked the flavor of the crust and the way that you could eat these ribs with a knife and fork instead of gnawing them off the bone.  Other people missed the traditonal bbq treatment.  Nice to try but I would not make again, especially because the green peppercorns were so expensive!

Anyway, enough about that, thanks for trying the ribs-- I may give it a go, since I have the peppercorns already! Posted: 5:05 pm on June 29th

Needless to say that's all I used in the recipe! Overall I think people liked the chili-root beer recipe better. I don't eat pork (other than bacon) so can't offer a personal opinion.
