How to Remove the Membrane from Ribs
Starting at one end of each rib half, slide rounded tip of table knife under the membrane to loosen it from the bones, gently lifting membrane with tip of knife until it tears. Grab the end of the membrane with a paper towel, then pull it off. The membrane may come off in one whole piece, or it might need to be removed in several smaller pieces.
Serve with ½ cup of your favorite cooked pasta and ½ cup of sautéed vegetables to round out the meal.
