Ribs are not just a summer food!  You can whip up a batch of these bad boys any day of the week, no matter what the weather because no barbecue is actually required!

I cook ribs often because they are definitely a family favorite!  I always make ribs two ways, I love mine all sticky with barbecue sauce… the really good stuff and my husband likes his with salt and pepper!  You can do both ways at the same time!  It has taken me years to perfect my recipe… (thanks to my Mom who is literally the best cook on the entire planet!).

If you’ve made ribs, you know they have to be cooked before you grill them to make them tender… often people BOIL their ribs.  Not me, no way!  To me that makes them loose all their succulent flavor!  Try this method below and you will NEVER go back to boiled meat (just sounds bad to me) again!

Here are my top rib tips:

  • Baby Back (or Pork Back Ribs) are the best choice, they cook the nicest although the cost is slightly more
  • Do not boil your ribs
  • Peel the thin silvery skin off the back before cooking
  • Rinse your ribs before cooking, they often have small bone shards
  • Season before roasting
  • After roasting, if they are not tender, they need MORE time
  • If they are ready ahead of time, you can turn the oven off and let them sit for up to 1 hour if you don’t open the oven

Did you make this recipe?

Ingredients:

RIbs

  • 1 Package Back Ribs (side ribs will work but will take longer to cook)
  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Barbecue Sauce or Olive Oil , Salt & Pepper (see note below)

Rib Rub

  • 1 tablespoon Paprika
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper

Directions:

  1. Mix together Rib Rub ingredients
  2. Rinse ribs under cold water and blot dry with paper towels
  3. Massage Rib Rub onto ribs
  4. Place ribs on a foil lined tray and cover with sliced onion and garlic (see the yummy rub!)
  5. Cover & seal with another piece of foil
  6. Bake ribs at 275 for 2 hours… open the corner and make sure they are tender. If not, bake another 20 minutes
  7. Remove onions & garlic, place ribs on a new foil lined pan
  8. Generously baste with barbecue sauce
  9. Broil on top rack for 3 minutes each side (or until desired doneness)
  10. Broiling can be replaced with grilling
  11. Note: I love my ribs with barbecue sauce but my husband loves salt and pepper ribs! For Salt and Pepper Ribs, before broiling brush ribs with olive oil and generously sprinkle with salt and course pepper. Broil as above.
