  1. In a small bowl, mix together the pepper, sugar, salt and allspice. Sprinkle the spice mixture generously over each rib.
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat, but be careful not to burn. Brown ribs on all sides in the butter. Pour in the beef broth, cover, and reduce heat to low. Simmer for about 1 1/2 hours, or until ribs are fork tender. Do not remove the lid from the skillet during cooking.

For fans of Allspice and quick and easy recipes, this is a great one! The kids picked and prodded, because they are not used to that flavor, but I thought it was great. I replaced the sugar with...

I have made these four times in a crock pot. I now crave them, so beware they are fantastic!

I have to admit I was skeptical using allspice on pork ribs........DELICIOUS!! I used olive oil instead of butter. Excellent and easy!

These are the best ribs I have ever tasted! They got raves at the table from my daughters boyfriends and my husband. They wanted to know what was in the rub. Even though there was sugar in the ...

I made a few changes to this recipe to create an oriental dish - instead of allspice I used chinese five spice. At the end of the cooking time, I turned up the heat and cooked the liquid off, s...
