Throwing a surprise 30th birthday party in Manhattan and looking for a great venue to hold it. Need a cool, hip vibe that won't break the bank if 40 people attend. Looking at doing perhaps drinks and appetizers/hors dourves etc. Any ideas? Thanks!
Beef ribs can stand up to strong flavors. Here, a spicy-sweet rub with chili powder, cumin, cayenne, garlic, and brown sugar coats the meat, which is roasted to tenderness. Finishing on the grill with a smoky chipotle barbecue sauce ensures the meat gets a nice char and the sauce lacquers.
