Hey there, sweetie!
Is there anything better than ribs?
And by ribs, I mean… good ribs.
Fall off the bone, no utensils required, sweet, spicy and smokey ribs.
Nothing comes to my mind either.
The only problem is, those bad boys are a lot of work. And time consuming.
With this recipe you can make tender, juicy ribs with only three ingredient (three!) and minimal effort and “prep time”.
Of course, there is a bit of oven time required, but as long as you plan ahead you will be good to go. The trick with these ribs is that they are cooked low and slow in the oven, and then finished off on the grill.
Best of both worlds.
Here’s what you’re gonna need:
rack of ribs
Here’s what you’re gonna do:
Preheat your oven to 250 degrees and pat your ribs dry with a paper towel.
Flip the ribs over so the “meat” is on the bottom and run a knife length wise down the rack. You will notice a thin membrane, tear it off and get ready to rub!
Sprinkle the meat (all sides) with a dry rub and rub, rub, rub it in until every little bit of those ribs are covered.
Seal the ribs in a packet of foil and place them on a tray and into the oven. For 4 hours.
I know, I know, it’s a long time but low and slow is the name of the game with ribs, and when that meat is falling off the bone at dinner time you won’t regret the wait.
After 4 hours, take out the ribs and heat up your grill to high. Once the ribs have cooled for about 5 minutes, slather em with bbq sauce and throw em on the grill.
BBQ sauce has lots of sugars in it meaning the ribs will burn if left on direct heat too long, so keep a close eye on them and flip them every 3-4 minutes.
They shouldn’t need much more than 10 minutes (if that) because we aren’t “cooking” them, just getting some grill flavor, a nice gooey glaze and a little crispy char.
You’ll know when they are done cause they’ll look like this. 🙂
See how that meat is just flaking off of the bone? That’s the payoff.
Serve with some extra bbq sauce and a whole lotta napkins!
