How to Grill Boneless Pork Ribs on a Foreman Grill

Updated February 21, 2017

When you fire up your barbecue grill and cook thick, juicy steaks, chicken or pork, the smoke and grill infuses the meat with delicious flavours. If you don't have the time or inclination to use your traditional grill, a George Foreman Grill may be a good substitute. The George Foreman Grill is a small, electric countertop grill that is used inside. Use the Foreman grill to quickly and safely cook a number of foods, including boneless pork ribs.

Cover the baking tray with two layers of foil.

Cut 0.454kg. of ribs in 4- to 5-inch long sections and place on the foil-covered sheet.

Sauté the onions in a sauce pan until they are soft. Add the olive oil, tomato sauce, water, brown sugar, lemon juice, Worcestershire, mustard, salt and pepper to the onions and stir. Simmer for 15 minutes until thickened.

Plug in the grill and close the lid. Preheat the grill for 5 minutes. The power light should be on, indicating that the machine is heating. Place the drip tray in front of the grill.

Baste the ribs with the sauce using your pastry brush.

Put on your oven glove and raise the lid on the grill. Use tongs to place one rib on each side of the grill and close the lid. The power light will go back on to indicate the element is heating up again.

Remove the first layer of foil on the baking tray.

Cook the pork until it reaches an internal temperature of 71.1 degrees Celsius, approximately 8 to 10 minutes or longer, depending on the thickness of the ribs. The USDA recommends cooking pork to that temperature, which can be registered by inserting an instant-read thermometer in the thickest part of the meat.

Put on the oven glove and lift the lid. Use the plastic spatula that came with the grill to release the meat and transfer it to the clean foil on the baking tray.


When the grease in the drip tray cools, slide it away from the grill and empty it.


Don't use wooden or steel utensils as they may scratch the surface of the grill.
