This recipe I’m about to share will have you cooking ribs in your sleep – it’s simple, delicious, and will have your family asking for more!
I have always found cooking ribs a little daunting (and “out of my league”), but my sister-in-law used this recipe the other day and the ribs were soooo delicious - it had me wanting to try it out myself! The recipe I went off of can be found on InspiredTaste.net, but I’ll share my version down below!
2- 2 ½ pounds of spare ribs (you can also use baby back)
Salt and pepper
BBQ of choice
- Heat oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit
- Remove thin membrane covering the back side of the ribs (important step for meat to be tender and fall off the bone)
- Season both sides of the ribs with salt and pepper
- Place ribs in a large rimmed baking sheet meat-side up (you can cut ribs into small sections if needed)
- Cover the baking sheet with aluminum foil and bake until meat falls off the bone (3-4 hours)
- Remove ribs from the oven, remove aluminum foil and brush both sides with bbq sauce of your choosing.
- Turn broiler to high and broil ribs for 3-4 minutes (watch them closely and remove sooner once the bbq sauce begins to caramelize)
- To peel off membrane, set ribs bone side up and slide a knife under the membrane then use your fingers to pull the membrane away from the bones.
- To be less messy, you can wrap the ribs completely with aluminum foil so the juices stay off the baking sheet.
