Steam the ribs until they are cooked and falling off the bone:
Heat the oven to 350ºF.
Chop ribs into sections. For parties, I usually chop the ribs into individual ribs. For serving at a sit-down dinner, you can use sections of 2 - 3 ribs.
Lay the ribs out in a single layer on a wire rack in a baking dish or on a cookie sheet.
Pour 1/2 cup of water into the bottom of the dish.
Cover with foil.
Bake for 1½ to 2 hours.
For parties, ribs can be cooked to this point ahead of time and then refrigerated.
