  • Barbecue Sauce: Your favorite BBQ sauce for basting (optional)
  • Oil: To brush onto the grill plates
  • George Foreman Indoor Outdoor Grill
  • Basting brush
  • Meat thermometer
  • Grill tongs

Preparation Steps

Before you start grilling, you’ll need to prepare your rib tips:

  1. Pre-marinate your rib tips for at least 1 hour or overnight in the refrigerator, if possible, to enhance their flavor.
  2. Preheat your George Foreman Indoor Outdoor Grill to a high setting for at least 5 minutes.
  3. Brush the grill plates lightly with oil to prevent sticking.

The Cooking Process

Follow these steps to grill your rib tips:

  1. Place your marinated rib tips onto the preheated grill.
  2. Cook the rib tips for about 20-30 minutes, turning occasionally for even cooking. The grill’s lid should be closed to maintain a consistent temperature.
  3. If you prefer a charred exterior, open the lid and cook for an additional few minutes on each side for direct heat exposure.
  4. When the rib tips reach an internal temperature of 145°F (as measured by your meat thermometer), they are done.
  5. If using BBQ sauce, baste the rib tips during the last 10 minutes of grilling to add an extra layer of flavor.
  6. Remove the rib tips from the grill and let them rest, covered with aluminum foil, for about 5-10 minutes before serving. This allows the juices to redistribute.
