Oven baked ribs

I used to start ribs in the oven and MFD would finish them on the grill. I'm done with that. These come out exactly how I like them, and I should have them how I like them because I don't like to eat ribs in public. Finger lickin' good food is best consumed in the home. So if you have a relatively free Saturday or Sunday, pop these in the oven. You won't be sorry. I served them with a side of mashed sweet potatoes and steamed green beans.

Original recipe here.

Oven baked ribs

by Life According to Steph
Cook Time: 4.5 hours
  • 3-5 lb pork spare ribs
  • Himalayan pink salt
  • White pepper
  • Paprika
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • ground mustard
  • 1 cup Sweet Baby Ray's barbecue sauce
Preheat oven to 225.
Cut your ribs in half if necessary to fit on two baking sheets. Baking sheets must have lips and be greased.
Before baking, generously season both sides of ribs with spices. Put them on the baking sheets meat side up. Cover tightly with foil.
Bake for 3.5 hours on two different racks in the oven. Rotate at the 1.5 hour mark.
After 3.5 hours, remove foil, brush barbecue sauce on (more or less to your liking) and put them back in the oven at 300 degrees for another half hour.

Finger lickin' good.
You will need many wet wipes...
or wipe hands on pants.
It's Tuesday. That's all I have.

  1. My Mom makes these. :-) She swears by them! I will have to give them a try. I bet the house smells fabulous!

  2. I have never made them ay home. Sounds delicious, and I agree best devoured at home!

  3. These look so good! I love ribs but have always made them on the bbq also. Another recipe I must try out! I actually started making my own bbq sauce and we've been liking it so much better than the bottled.

  4. All I have to say is YUM!!!! One of my favorite comfort foods :)

  5. Looks so very good!
    (totally worth all the mess)
    I'll just wear old pants.

  6. Look divine. And it makes your house smell delish! My hubby slow-roasted pulled pork all day yesterday and man not only did it taste great but the smells were out of this world!

  7. They look so good!!! I have never made them at home before. Never really thought to. Great idea.

  8. I would do some damage on these ribs!! They sound incredible! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  9. I had ribs for the first time in years the other day, and it just wasn't quite what I wanted. This, on the other hand, sounds amazing! Oh, and my roommate swears by Sweet Baby Ray, so with 2 recommendations, I'll definitely have to give it a shot.

  10. Oven-baked ribs are the best way to go!! You should try the same thing and use Emeril's Southwestern seasoning for a different flair. YUM. Easiest meal ever.

  11. We just made ribs in the oven last week- it was SO easy and SO delicious!!! And super messy. haha- I brought leftovers for lunch and felt ridiculous eating them at work because I made a mess. Definitely better to eat at home.

  12. No hands on pants!!! These look great!! Very messy. The only thing I will eat at a restaurant that are very messy is all you can eat crab legs, preferably dungeness! They lose money on me!!!
    This recipe is already filed in my recipe folder.
    Love, Your MOMMA

  13. Next to sashimi and steak, ribs are my favorite. I don't even mind eating them in public. I've made them in my slowcooker and finished them off in the broiler. Have to try this oven version!

  14. I have to tell you, I've never made ribs! this is changing today!

  15. Those look great!!! I think ribs were on sale at one of the grocery stores by our new place ... might have to get that item on my Choose Your Adventure list!

  16. I have got to try these!!!! We are in need of a grill and everyone I know bakes them in the over and finishes them on the grill so I am glad this is all over! Mmmmmm

  17. These look great! I agree with keeping the messy food behind closed doors. We cook ribs at home quite often by boiling them for 45 mins and then throwing then on the grill with some BBQ sauce for 15 but I will h ave to try your recipe when we have some extra time.

  18. I've never made ribs- but I gotta say, as easy at this recipe sounds (and as delicious as they look!) I really need to give 'em a try!

  19. hey, wipe hands on pants. you're at home after all.
    i have never had ribs. like, ever. i should try these.

  20. I love the flavor of ribs, but hate the bones (is that weird?) but gah does this recipe sound so good!!

  21. I always finish ribs on the grill too... who knew it would work just as well in the oven! I am definitely trying this!

  22. These look great! And you're right finger licking good food is best eaten at home!

  23. yummmmmm sounds delicious! I cook mine in the crock pot.
