Make these fall off the bone ribs and I guarantee everyone will be raving about how delicious they are. The best part is that they could not be easier to make, all you need is some time and patience. I cook these in the oven which is also especially convenient. Pair it with my homemade coleslaw recipe and you are set for a perfect summer meal that no one will forget.
baby back ribs
pork rub or seasoning of your choice (salt & pepper, etc.)
Preheat your oven to 270º F.
Remove the membrane behind the ribs.
The membrane binding the ribs is on the side opposite the meat. It is a thin white layer that you need to remove, in order for the ribs to fall apart easily. To do this simply make a cut into the top end of the membrane with a sharp knife. Grab ahold of it and begin peeling back with a paper towel until it is fully removed.
Season ribs generously with seasoning ( you can let this marinate for a few hours for more intense flavor).
Place your ribs meat side facing up in a cookie sheet with sides that will contain excess oil.
Tightly wrap the cookie sheet with aluminum foil and place it into the oven. Cook for 4 hours.
Remove ribs from the oven and pour out the oil. Take your barbecue sauce and spread onto ribs evenly.
Place ribs back into the oven on broil for a few minutes (keep your eye on it) until the BBQ sauce is bubbling & caramelized. Enjoy!
Adjust the cooking time to how many ribs you are making. When I make two racks at a time I cook for at least 4 1/2 hours.
