A question about a recipe: Ian Knauer's Sticky Balsamic Ribs

Do you have to use water to steam the ribs? Could I use beer?

They're steamed -- there's only a half cup of liquid in each pan and the meaty side of the ribs is curved up, not resting in the liquid.

Are the ribs steamed or boiled in the pan with the water / beer?

Great idea. I'll try beer too next time. Let us know how it goes!

Just be sure to check it a little early to make sure you're not close to burning off all the liquid -- maybe even splash a little extra in the bottom of the pan to start.
