Oven Baby Back Ribs

I have a confession to share. I absolutely love grilled pork spare ribs! To me, they are just plain delicious! But my problem was, I do not know how to work a grill, and because this is something I want to enjoy year round at home, I knew I would have to learn how to make ribs in the oven that are practically just as tasty as my favorite bbq joint. This recipe is my favorite way to make oven bbq ribs that are sure to make the faces of anyone who eats them light up. As usual, when you make them let me know how they turn out, and enjoy!

Glam Kitchen Tips

  • I clean my slab of ribs with vinegar and cold water ( totally optional but it’s a must to me) and then blot them dry with paper towel before seasoning the meat
  • Baby back ribs are ideal but you could use this with a regular slab -just add another cup of bbq sauce for the sauce part of the recipe
  • Remove membrane from the back side of the ribs. Begin by running a knife between the membrane and the rib.

Ingredients

◦ 2.5-3 lb pork baby back ribs slab

◦ Goya adobo seasoning

◦ Badia complete seasoning

◦ Ground Black pepper

◦ Onion powder

◦ 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

◦ 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

◦ 1 cup your favorite barbecue sauce (I

used Sweet Baby Ray’s)

◦ 2 tablespoon ketchup

◦ 2 tablespoon brown sugar

◦ 2 tablespoon honey

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees
  2. Lay a sheet of aluminum foil over the bottom of a large baking sheet or pan (long enough to fit the ribs)
  3. Season the backside of the slab of ribs with adobo, complete seasoning, ground black pepper, and onion powder
  4. Rub 1/2 tablespoon of mustard over the backside of the ribs and flip ribs over to the other side
  5. Season the other side of ribs with the same seasonings in step 3, and rub the other 1/2 tablespoon of mustard on the ribs
  6. Pour the Worcestershire sauce over the top of the ribs and wrap the foil over to enclose the ribs in the foil
  7. Bake ribs in oven for 2 hours on 300 degrees
  8. Remove ribs from oven and drain juices from foil
  9. In a small bowl, combine barbecue sauce , ketchup, brown sugar , and honey
  10. Brush both sides of the ribs with bbq sauce , save about half of the sauce
  11. Place ribs back in the oven and turn heat up to 375 degrees
  12. Bake ribs for another 30-45 minutes with no foil covering the top of the ribs
  13. Remove from heat and brush the top of ribs with more bbq sauce
  14. Let ribs rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving
