Awesome Oven Ribs

So before I get into this recipe I should tell you that the idea of cooking ribs at home has always intimidated me. The thought of grilling for long hours, crazy home made million spice dry rubs, etc all sounds like way too much work for a meal that will be eaten in 10 minutes time from sitting at the table. But when I discovered this extremely simple and versatile recipe, and saw that ribs were on sale for a ridiculously low price, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to give it a shot.



  • 1. Preheat oven to 225 degrees.

  • 2. Season your ribs with Dale's marinade, your favorite rib rub, grill seasoning, or simply salt and pepper.

  • 3. Place ribs, meat side down, in baking dishes.

  • 4. Cover the baking dishes with aluminum foil and place in the oven.

  • 5. If you are using small baby back ribs, take out after 3.5 hours. If you are using regular baby back or St. Louis style ribs, then take out after 4 hours.

  • 6. Drain off the drippings. Flip the ribs over using two spatulas (and an extra set of hands if you have them) so the meat side is up. Be careful, as they may be so tender they fall apart.

  • 7. Put a layer of BBQ sauce on the ribs and return to the oven uncovered for an additional 20-30 minutes.

  • 8. Remove from oven and serve them up

    *Mina's Notes/Suggestions*
    - I marinated mine in a bottled marinate over night (16 hrs) just to get it extra tender 
    - I made sure to wash and dry my ribs before seasoning (optional)
    - I was also worried that 225 would be too low to cook it till the meat was falling off the bone so I upped it to 250 and it worked perfectly

    Happy Eating! <3
