For Shawn’s Birthday Rib-n-Whiskey Fest, Chicken Fred Ribs were a must. If you know Shawn, you can chicken fry a wooden spoon and he would eat it…I was a little more skeptical but was not disappointed with this recipe. Again, I went to my favorite site epicurious.com but this time I followed the recipe to the letter, the only modification I made was to the sauce.
Chicken Fried Ribs
• About 6 cups vegetable oil
• 2 racks baby back ribs (about 1 pound each), cut into ribs
• 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
• 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
• 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 cups panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
For mustard sauce:
• 1/2 cup sour cream
• 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
• 5 mini garlic-dill pickles coarsely grated
• 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
Preheat oven to 200°F.
Heat 3/4 inch oil to 325°F in a deep 12-inch skillet over medium heat.
Meanwhile, season ribs with 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Put flour, eggs, and panko in 3 separate shallow bowls. Dredge ribs in flour, then coat with egg, letting excess drip off, and panko.
Fry ribs in batches, turning once, until golden brown and cooked through, 7 to 8 minutes per batch. Transfer first batch to a paper-towel-lined baking sheet and keep warm in oven. (Return oil to 325°F between batches.)
