It’s no secret that I love meat. Meat on top of meat with a side of meat is my ideal meal. So when it comes to entertaining and if I’m feeling lazy I like to make something that requires minimal effort. Ribs fit that description pretty well. This recipe is a bit non conventional but I do think that it works well. Someday I’d love to get a smoker but until that day comes these will have to do. Some people boil their ribs for tenderness and quicker cook time but it releases the juices into the water and robs the ribs of flavor. Others just bake it low and slow but I feel like I can never get it as tender as I like. This recipe kind of meets the two methods in the middle.
1 rack of ribs
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons pepper
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons paprika
about 3/4 cup BBQ Sauce
- Remove the silver skin from the back of the ribs.
- Apply your dry rub of whatever spices you like. We used salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika. (Front and back)
- Place Ribs on a baking rack and pour about a cup of water underneath. (You can substitute vinegar if you like)
- Cover the rack with aluminum foil
- Place in the oven at 350 degrees for about 3.5 hours.
- Remove the ribs and brush a generous amount of BBQ sauce on top of the ribs. You can make your own but we both love sweet baby rays.
- Place ribs back in the over under the broiler until the sauce caramelizes.
- Remove ribs and let them sit before cutting. Enjoy!
