These Baby Back Ribs are juicy, tender and fall-of-the-bone-tender ribs that are slathered in delicious sticky home-made barbecue sauce with a kick of garlic and fire-roasted tomatoes (B-B-Q Marinade recipe: HERE)! These pork ribs are a no-fail, easy, pop-in the oven, hands-down family favorite that you will add to your next barbecue line-up
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 2 1/2 hours
Yield: 4 pounds ribs
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Peel off the tough membrane that covers the underside/bony side of the ribs. Place on a baking sheet or shallow roasting pan lined with foil.
Make the rub by mixing together garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, pepper, cumin, and chili powder. Sprinkle seasoning over ribs and drizzle with oil. Rub the seasoning all over the ribs, covering both sides. Cover with foil and bake for 2 hours.
While the ribs make Bar-B-Q Marinade, or if in a pinch substitute with favorite ready-made sauce.
Remove ribs from the oven, remove foil and spread the tops of the ribs with the barbecue sauce mixture.
Increase oven temperature to 460°F. Return ribs to the oven, uncovered, and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Then turn the oven up to broil (or, finish on a hot grill) on high and heat to lightly char and caramelize the edges, about 4 minutes.
Rest for 10 minutes before slicing, and then dig in and ENJOY!
