Oven-baked baby back ribs

Oven-baked baby back ribs

Oven-baked baby back ribs are fall-off-the-bone tender and flavorful, just like grilled ribs, but with a lot less effort.


1 rack baby back ribs
2 tablespoons dry rub 
1/2 cup bbq sauce 


Pre-heat the oven to 275F.
Rinse and pat the ribs dry with a paper towel. Remove the silver skin membrane.
Coat the ribs in dry rub.
Wrap the ribs in foil on a baking sheet, being sure to seal the edges tightly.
Cook for 2 hours. You’ll know it’s ready when the meat pulls back from the bone and becomes fork tender. Continue cooking until the bone gives easily when pulled (up to 4 hours for larger rack of ribs).
Peel back the foil and discard any juices. Baste the ribs with BBQ sauce.
Set the oven to broil. When hot, place the baking tray under the broiler for 3-5 minutes. Repeat with an additional layer of bbq sauce, if desired. Serve the ribs.
