Expert Tips

Ribs can be bone-in or boneless. One boneless rib usually supplies enough meat for one serving.

If you prefer, you can slice your own cabbage instead of using the bag of coleslaw mix. Slice the cabbage very finely. Look for matchstick-cut carrots in the produce section of the grocery store.
