Baby Back Ribs

Rated as 4.77 out of 5 Stars
38

"These are tender and the meat falls right off the bone. Generally, people think of baby back ribs as a meal they would only order when at a restaurant, but they are so easy to make at home. This recipe could not be any more simple."

  1. Tear off 4 pieces of aluminum foil big enough to enclose each portion of ribs. Spray each piece of foil with vegetable cooking spray. Brush the ribs liberally with barbeque sauce and place each portion in its own piece of foil. Wrap tightly and refrigerate for at least 8 hours, or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  3. Bake ribs wrapped tightly in the foil at 300 degrees F (150 degrees C) for 2 1/2 hours. Remove from foil and add more sauce, if desired.

First an editorial comment: someone ripped this recipe because all it involved was a method to cook the ribs, while using common bottled dressing. I must disagree. There are a lot of ways to scr...

Yes, these are great IF you add to it. First, definitely use a dry rub before cooking in the oven. I also add a slight amount of brown sugar to caramelize and add great color. Finally after r...

These ribs really got my guests' attention when they literally fell off the bone, as they were served! I ensured their tenderness by removing the tough, clear membrane from the underside of the...
