OK to freeze cooked ribs not yet grilled?

dropdeadcookie | May 22, 2008 06:23 AM

Vegetarian here! I supposedly make "the best ribs" according to my meat-loving friends. Have no clue how they taste but that's not why I need help.

My dilemma is that I want to be sure that I have enough ribs for a crowd, but I'm not sure how much of a crowd is coming.

The recipe I use calls for a quick 3-minute boil followed by a cold-water wash and then an hour-long simmer with celery, onions, gar;lic, carrots.

Recipe says you can do the slow cooking a day in advance, then keep ribs in tightly wrapped plastic in refrigerator until ready to grill (basically a 15-minute high heat reheat of room-temp. ribs with slathered sauce). I have done this with apparently tasty results.

My question is:

Do you think I can freeze any remaining cooked (but not grilled) ribs and then defrost and grill with BBQ sauce?
