Pour the marinade over the ribs in a shallow non-metal baking dish. Check that the ribs are evenly coated.

In a white baking dish, place the beef ribs and marinade.

Refrigerate for 2 to 6 hours, covered with plastic wrap.

Allow the ribs to come to room temperature before grilling.

Set up a gas or charcoal grill for indirect cooking. Set the active burner to 250 degrees Fahrenheit.

Remove the ribs from the marinade and place them on the cool side of the grill to cook indirectly.

Remove the marinade. Close the lid and cook until the ribs are tender, about 3 hours depending on the meatiness of the ribs.
